Dune

(2014)

A new adaptation of the Frank Herbert classic, "Dune." "Dune" spawned five sequels written by Herbert, and inspired a 1984 film adaptation by David Lynch, and in 2000 two mini-series made by the SCI FI Channel, computer games, a board game, and a series of prequels and sequels co-written by the author's son Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson.

Dune was released in 2014.

There were rumors that Paramount was leaning towards putting the project in turnaround, but it seems the studio will give the production a little more time.
