Newsblast Archives: Dune Does Not Include Sandy Duncan

The Dune movie on Sci Fi does not include Sandy Duncan, star of The Hogan Family after they killed off Valerie Harper from her own show.

But that would be clever, if it were up to me. Sure, I'd be fired shortly thereafter. But it's someone named Duncan, in a Dune movie.

Actors actually, really cast in the 6-hour miniseries for the Sci-Fi Channel are Alec Newman as Paul Atreides, William Hurt as Duke Leto, and Giancarlo Giannini (A Walk in the Clouds) as the emperor. The director and scriptwriter is John Harrison (Tales from the Darkside: The Movie).

The $20-million budgeted film starts shooting today (Nov. 22) in Prague, the Czech Republic, and Tunisia. There is no confirmation that Sandy Duncan has been cast as the sandworm. See? Another chance missed. This movie is made for Sandy Duncan, you bastards!
