Rare ‘Dune’ Manuscript Bought on DAO’s Behalf for $3M, but It Only Raised $700K


Jodorowsky’s “Dune” manuscript is basically a large storyboard for one of the crucial well-known films by no means made. The Chilean auteur spent the mid-70s casting and writing his adaptation of Frank Herbert’s novel (Mick Jagger, Salvador Dali, Orson Welles, H.R. Giger, and Pink Floyd had been among the many collaborators on board), but ran nicely over price range, and by no means accomplished it. A 2013 documentary, “Jodorowsky’s Dune,” chronicled the event course of and provided a number of tantalizing glimpses of the manuscript itself. David Lynch ended up directing the primary movie adaptation of “Dune” in 1984; a brand new model directed by Denis Villeneuve was launched final month.
