Dune is one of the most famous science fiction novels of all time. And once upon a time one of the most acclaimed directors of all time was going to tackle the story. Alejandro Jodorowsky was, at one point in time, set to direct a feature film adaptation of Dune.
He had assembled an all-star crew, amazing cast, and completed massive amounts of pre-production… and then everything fell apart. The film is one of the most infamous unmade films ever.
And now there’s a new documentary coming out that chronicles the rise and fall of the film.
