Dune

Once upon a time Alejandro Jodorowsky was going to make the film adaptation for Dune. According to wikipedia Salvador Dali, Orson Welles, Gloria Swanson, David Carradine, Geraldine Chaplin, Alain Delon, Hervé Villechaize and Mick Jagger were going to be involved. Pink Floyd were also going to do the soundtrack. He hired a bunch of really famous and talented artists including Giger and Moebius to do all the pre-production stuff such as concept art, ship design and storyboards etc. Obviously the project never took off and David Lynch got his grubby mitts on it but a lot of the artwork for the original project is floating about.

H.R Giger.




Since the site wont let me save images, links will have to suffice.
