*Should* they remake Dune?

My first reaction is to yell “NOOOOOOOOOOOOO” but then, even the David Lynch Dune has a critically flawed ending.  and I mean flawed.  As in, “WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU DOING YOU HAVEN’T STABILIZED THE NEW ECOSYSTEM YET YOU’VE JUST DOOMED THE GALAXY TO CHOOSE BETWEEN UTTER COLLAPSE AND ANOTHER EVENTUAL BUTLERIAN JIHAD” flawed. So maybe we can survive a new Dune reboot:

Director Denis Villeneuve is on quite a roll already. The director has already made critical hits like Prisoners and Sicario. His next film, Arrival is already highly anticipated and is receiving great buzz. The director is next going to take over the reins of a much-loved sci-fi franchise as he is directing the sequel to Blade Runner. It looks like he will continue directing sci-fi as the next project he wants to do is a remake of Frank Herbert‘s Dune.

Although we probably can’t survive a sequel to Blade RunnerHow in God’s name can anybody be arrogant enough to think that they have more to say on this topic than Philip K. Dick did?  I mean. Really?  Really?
