Master Of Male Danger Will Write Dune Movie

Peter Berg's movie of Frank Herbert's desert epic novel Dune could be a tense thriller about men who barely repress their inner monsters, if screenwriter Josh Zetumer gets to write the script. Zetumer, who's in talks to script it, is "especially good at developing complex male characters in whom danger is always lurking just beneath the surface," says a Warner Bros. exec in last year's Variety profile. He's also done production work on the new James Bond movie and written two other scripts, including a psychological thriller about "two brothers at odds in the Alaskan wilderness." And he's in an indie rock band that sounds quite good. So, yay then. [Hollywood Reporter]
