As we await the Denis Villeneuve version, let’s look back at Jodorowsky’s Dune with some incredible photos.
In 1975, visionary filmmaker Jodorowsky set out to create a movie he hoped gave people an LSD trip without the LSD. It would have a massive budget and use every ounce of his creativity and imagination.
This was a less than faithful adaptation of the Frank Herbert classic, Dune.
The movie was set to star Jodorowsky’s own 12-year-old son, Brontis, alongside Orson Welles, Mick Jagger, David Carradine, and even Salvador Dali.
Pink Floyd would score the movie and it would feature set design by some of the most provocative talents of the era, including H.R. Giger and Jean ‘Moebius’ Giraud.
Yeah…it was supposed to be as bonkers as it sounds.
There was an epic documentary about Jodorowsky’s failed adaptation. Check out the trailer below.
