Alejandro Jodorowsky's DUNE
The project would have featured:
- A soundtrack by Pink Floyd
- Salvador Dali as the Padishah Emperor, who made it a condition of his employment that he be seen going to the bathroom in a golden throne of two dolphin mouths (!)
- A cast featuring Gloria Swanson, Mick Jagger, and Orson Welles
- Art design by Moebius, H.R. Giger and Dan O'Bannon
Alejandro Jodorowsky was always a favorite of mine. It helps because of his quote: "I ask of cinema what most Americans ask of psychadelic drugs."
It would have been interesting to see what Jodorowsky, with his otherworldly sensibility, would have done with DUNE.
