10 Sci-Fi Books Like Dune That Need a Movie Adaptation

While George Lucas’ Star Wars franchise carried the torch for cinematic sci-fi for decades, and continues to try and further expand on the universe it conceived with its first film in 1977, all of its commercialized success (and downturn) lives perpetually in the shadow of the book series that directly influenced its entire existence. Frank Herbert’s Dune series, which was first published in 1965, was well-known among avid classic science fiction perusers but otherwise it remained in relative obscurity from the public eye while Star Wars firmly took the wheel of blockbuster science fiction cinema. Fewer knew that director George Lucas built his vision entirely on the foundation of Herbert’s universe and obviously added more futuristic glitz and glamour, which ultimately made the franchise extremely marketable and set for a never-ending avalanche of merchandise.
