    With the inevitable success of LOTR, do you think anyone will take on the Dune series. I know that it done way back when, and SCI-FI channel has done their mini-series, but I would like to see a all the books turned into major productions.

    I would much rather see the final chapter written by Herbert's son. He wrote a trilogy prequel in the late 90s-2000 and they were outstanding. He apparently found Frank Herbert's notes on what was to be the final book, but I haven't seen anything about it since.

    I think the books are so involved that any attempt at a book to movie conversion nowadays would just end up as eye candy, and ultimately be a letdown. Indepth sci-fi just isn't as popular now with A.D.D. so envogue it seems.

    I actually wonder if someone isn't going to option the Shannara series (or hasn't already) to try to cash in on LOTR.
