Dune back on track with Taken’s Morel as director

David Lynch turned Frank Herbert’s tale into a hit movie with Sting among his stars in 1984 and the project was turned into a TV mini-series in 2000.

Morel has signed on to direct the latest version after moviemaker Peter Berg quit the project last year (09).

The new film was scripted by Quantum of Solace writer Josh Zetumer, according to EW.com.

Filming is expected to start later this year (10).
