Found! David Lynch’s Missing Script for Dune 2

FOUND AT LAST, THE MISSING DAVID LYNCH DUNE 2 SCRIPT MISSING FOR DECADES

I actually saw the original Dune movie in the movie theater.  I was still a kid at the time, and let’s just say that’s the first time I saw a movie that long and remained riveted the entire time.  It’s been a few years, shall we say, since that day.  And, to be fair, the movie was a veritable disaster at the box office, though it remains a cult classic today.  It was… too grand.  There’s a very good reason the current Dune movie and forthcoming sequel were broken into two installments to deliver the story.  But there’s actually new news about David Lynch’s original: his long missing and mysterious script for Dune 2 has been found.

LYNCH’S ORIGINAL DUNE WAS A BEAUTIFUL, CONFUSING BUST, BUT I WANTED MORE

To be honest, I only vaguely remember that there was even a missing or lost script penned by David Lynch to continue the grand vision.  Sure, the recently discovered Dune 2 script is a veritable unfinished draft.  If you know Dune, and by that I mean you read the books –all the books– then you know that the giant scale of the actual story was much larger than you’ve seen in any of the movies or TV productions.  And Lynch’s unfinished draft was set to tackle a great deal of that.  Unfortunately, that probably would have meant that most people would have been even more confused than they were by the original.

And that’s where I admit that even though I was (and remain) a geek at the time, I hadn’t read the books when I saw the original Dune movie in the theater.  But I did read them, all of them, so I could then see the damn movie again and actually know everything that was going on.  Well, besides Kyle McLachlan’s ridiculous jawline and my still unswerving crush on a young, ah, Sean Young.  I just hope to get my hands on a copy of the now-found copy of the unfinished draft of David Lynch’s Dune 2.  It will whet my appetite before getting to see Denis Villeneuve’s second half of the first book onscreen March 1st.
