Now that we've all reconciled ourselves sourly to the idea that Peter "The Kingdom" Berg will be directing a big-budget remake of Dune, it's time to talk about what the Dune movie really should be: a generation-spanning epic about war, full of vast, dramatic landscapes ala The Searchers or Lawrence of Arabia. Nobody adapting Dune for the screen (big or small) seems to understand that the book isn't so much about spaceships and giant worms as it is about landscape. We've got some suggestions for Berg before he starts filming.
