Perhaps with Denis Villeneuve directing?

Yeah, they've been talking about this again lately.  It will be interesting to see what they do with it.  I personally like the 1984 cult classic film.  But, I also haven't read the book.  (funny, given that I own it, I really need to read it)

I would so love to see this happen.  Dune is one of my all time favorite books and I loved the movie (1984).  It was super cheesy but the cast was great.

Well, if LotR is any indication, a properly motivated producer with the right support (financial and otherwise) can make a faithful adaptation of any story.

Funny since LOTR was far from faithful

If they made a truly faithful adaptation of LotR and included everything that was in the books, The Fellowship of the Ring alone would have been a series of 10 films that were 3+ hours in length. I don't care how excited you are for the film, you aren't gonna sit through all of that.

Yeah, they drastically sped up the pacing and left a lot of stuff out of the LOTR films.  I don't imagine they need to do that with Dune, though.  Wink

Yes they would, Dune is a long and detailed book.  The problem with the 1984 theatrical movie is that it is far too short, it is a must to watch the expanded version.  I personally love the books and the 1984 movie.  I even have the soundtrack to the movie as well as I love the music from it (written by Toto!)
