Grimes: ‘I want to remake cult sci-fi movie ‘Dune”

Singer claims it would be her 'dream' to direct a new version of the '80s film

Grimes has revealed that she wants to remake ’80s cult movie Dune.

The electro-pop artist, who has referenced Frank Herbert’s 1965 sci-fi novel in her songs, claims it would be her “dream” to make a new film version. David Lynch previously brought the book to the big screen in 1984. Grimes told Bust magazine: “I want to direct a full-length film of Dune. I liked the David Lynch version, but everyone knows that he didn’t really care about it. I just feel there isn’t really a great Dune movie in the same way that there’s a Lord Of The Rings movie. I think by the time I’m 50, it’ll be time for another Dune movie, and I’d love to make it. That’s the dream of my life.”

Grimes is due to perform at the Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival in California on April 14 and 21. Other acts scheduled to play include The Stone Roses, Blur, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Biffy Clyro and NME Godlike Genius Johnny Marr.
