I love nothing more than documentaries about the making-of huge epic movies, but I find doc's about unmade or unfinished films even more riveting! And so, the one I absolutely can not wait for is 'Jodorowsky's Dune.' Yes, the legendary Spanish director behind 'Santa Sangre,' 'El Topo,' and 'The Holy Mountain' had intended to adapt Frank Herbert's 1965 epic science fiction novel into a film that as he describes as a simulated "LSD trip." Artists such as H.R. Giger and Jean Giraud (aka Moebius) were on board, as well as actors Orson Wells and rocker Mick Jagger?! Obviously the project never came to be, at least not in this version as David Lynch ended up directing his version of 'Dune' (well, sorta), so this documentary is definitely one to keep an eye out for. And FEARnet was lucky enough to sit down with the overly enthusiasm director of the film Frank Pavich. Check out what he had to say about this fascinating story and how this doc all came to be!
