Peter Berg, who directed the film version of FNL and exec-produces the series, will now direct an adaptation of Frank Herbert's classic sci-fi novel Dune for the big screen, according to Variety.

There have, of course, already been two adaptations of the book: David Lynch's 1984 film starring Kyle MacLachlan and a 2000 Sci Fi Channel miniseries starring William Hurt.
