(The part of Llama Worm will be played by Drama Llama)

I haven’t read Dune, the best-selling sci-fi novel, or seen the infamous, 1984 David Lynch flop based on it.  I gather it involves giant worms from the future?  Anyway, originally-slated director Peter Berg is off directing a movie about Battleships from space (no, really), so Paramount has hired Pierre Morel (Taken, District B-13, From Paris with Bazooka John).

– Paramount is currently looking for a new writer to incorporate Morel’s vision of the project into the original draft by Quantum of Solace scribe Josh Zetumer. Morel plans to make a very faithful adaptation of the 1965 book by Frank Herbert. [EW]
– Morel is a long-time fan who brought his well-worn copy of the novel with him to meetings at Paramount, sources said. [Variety via GammaSquad]

Yeah, so I don’t really know anything about this project.  Is it anything like Tremors?  That would be cool.
