Find out why Dune is delayed until 2014

There is a little strange situation at Paramount Pictures, related to project of the classic sci-fi Dune, the generally fundamental problem of studios: the hunger for money. Situation has brought another problem, the rights writers and holders who not only receive offers from everywhere, but they have a word to say about how movies are made and produced.

Rumors started last November, and even this year, saying that Paramount will extend the project based on the novel by Frank Herbert for a period of four years, both for the development of the concept and to complete the scenario.

Paramount officials have denied the rumor and said that Dune project will set in motion, the studio forgetting to specify the exact date of production or distribution or when will begin shooting or casting, because the are not there yet. However it seems that rights holders and owners will not grant another extension of time, because the project has stretched so much, moving too slowly.

DUNE project for a new film from Frank Herbert's book 1965 book is Sci-Fi novel with the highest sales ever started somewhere in 2008.

It should be noted here that such a project of this magnitude, is a very difficult task, given the famous novel Dune and passion of the universe created by Fanrk Hebert in detail. After Peter Berg was appointed as a director and spent several years developing a script with writer Josh Zetumer, he left the project in favor of film Battleship. Chase Palmer then rewrote under the supervision of Pierre Morel who was eventually appointed, director Peter Berg's departure.

Finally!, Yes you guessed it, it seems that Morel left the project he will be only an executive producer. If at first the approximate date the film was in 2010, then 2012, surely now the release was delayed until 2014. May someone understand something? No one said it would be easy to start such a project.

Dune series still prints and sells well all over the world and there is no library that do not have a series of books by Fank Herbert. But, symbolically speaking, the book is always related to the 1984 film, directed by David Lynch, in his own style, a little strange, a film that left much to be desired, especially its lack of specific content Dune universe, a film that reminds us just a giant worm in the desert and the Sting dressed only in what looked like a diaper blue, with charismatic actor, during that time, Kyle MacLachlan.

Yet nobody wants to take the reins of the project, which is very complex and very difficult to conceive and shot. Parmount Dune sees a good franchise with high earning opportunities and a chance to get another trilogy and who knows maybe other sequels.

Either way, the clock ticking, and Paramount studio is careful, as any studio would be a project that has already cost, around $ 100 million, money that the studio invested in development costs, written and copyrighted.

Perhaps the studio would be able to gain some of the money, if they manage to sell the entire project. Yet, despite the uncertainties, the launch was postponed for year 2014, pending completion of the script and the unclear situation of the project.
