TAKEN Director Pierre Morel to Helm DUNE Remake

     January 4, 2010


After Peter Berg jumped ship on the Dune remake back in October so he could make Battleship, Paramount has been looking for a new director to get the project back on track.  EW’s Hollywood Insider says they have found their man in Taken director Pierre Morel.  Morel, whose next film From Paris with Love is schedule to hit theaters on February 5th, plans to make a very faithful adaptation of Frank Herbert’s 1965 classic sci-fi novel.  Paramount is now in the process of hiring a new writer to blend Morel’s vision for the film with the original draft penned by Quantum of Solace screenwriter Josh Zetumer.
