Legendary acquires movie/TV rights to Dune.

Via Geek Girl Authority comes this… I dunno what this is. Could be good. Could be bad.

Legendary has just acquired film and TV rights to Frank Herbert’s seminal science fiction novel Dune after coming to agreement with the Herbert estate. This is not the first time Dune has been brought to both the small and big screens over the novel’s 51 years since Herbert wrote his iconic book. Many filmmakers attempted but failed over the years to bring this iconic novel to life in the way that Herbert and sci-fi fans imagined.

There’s a lot of (probably justified) speculation that Legendary is looking at Dune and thinking ‘multi-movie larger universe with a bunch of interconnected properties.’ Because Marvel’s doing it, Disney is doing it – and, heck, even DC is trying to do it, so how hard can it be? …And it would be nice.  If it was done properly.
