Grimes - Grimes Keen To Direct New Version Of Sci-fi Epic Dune

Canadian singer/songwriter Grimes has big plans to reimagine David Lynch's cult film Dune as a new blockbuster.

The Genesis hitmaker, real name Claire Boucher, has referenced Frank Herbert's 1965 sci-fi novel in her songs and now she wants to revisit the story as a moviemaker.

She tells 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."
