Dune – A Special Edition of David Lynch’s film

Posted by LiveFor on May 7, 2010

Work is slowly moving on with a new version of Dune directed by Pierre Morel (Taken). However, a person by the name of Sasha Burrow has a project to revamp the David Lynch version (which I love) by giving it all new special effects. Kind of like the Star Wars Special Editions only with more love.

This is a project I have been slowly working on over the last few years with the goal of ultimately replacing many of the “outdated” special effects shots in David Lynch’s 1984 version of Dune.

The project initially began as an endeavor to build a “proper” ornithopter – one with flapping wings, that neither the movie or the mini-series managed to achieve. However, with the advent of the “fan-edit” the scope of the project has expanded with the goal of updating the effects in all those places in the movie where I feel things could be significantly “improved.”

Although I am currently working on this by Myself, it’s a large undertaking and if there is anyone interested in helping this project along, feel free to contact Me – We might actually be able to get this project completed with a few more skilled and enthusiastic people!

Let me tell you they have done an incredible amount of work. Diagrams, CGI tests, pre vis bits, mock up for DVD packaging and more. Absolutely incredible and one day it would be so good to see the updated version. Head on over to the site for more info on it. Good luck on the project.

You can get Darth Vader’s voice for a TomTom GPS!

Posted by LiveFor on May 5, 2010

If you live in the UK you can now download Darth Vader to give you directions on your TomTom GPS.

Then in June you can get C3PO, July gets Yoda and August is Han Solo.

Now is it just me or would Yoda directing you be awfully tricksy to follow?

Head over to the TomTom site to download them.

Yep, Sam Witwer is back as the apprentice Starkiller. Not sure how exactly after the two different endings of the first one. Will be interesting to see how the story plays out.

Warwick Davis talks about Hitchhikers, his book and an Ewok film

Posted by LiveFor on April 27, 2010

Warwick Davis will soon be starring in Ricky Gervais & Stephen Merchant’s new sitcom, Life’s Too Short. We know him as Wicket the Ewok, Willow, the Leprechaun and Marvin the Paranoid Android.

He always comes across as a top bloke and he has a book out called Size Matters Not, which is just the best title ever.

In the book he also recounts learning the etiquette of false beard cleaning from Michael Gambon while filming Harry Potter (check that out below); smoking a bong taller than him for comedy slasher Leprechaun; and what it was like to work with George Lucas while playing the part of Wicket the Ewok in Return of the Jedi – upon their first meeting on set, twelve year-old Warwick had no idea who the luminary director was, and passed him off as “a man with big hair, glasses and a beard” (they get on much better now, and Lucas wrote the foreword to his book).

You can pick up the book at the following links:
