That new Dune director sure gets around! Last week, we shared an interview in which Pierre Morel told how he loved the novel as a teenager, read it at least 10 times and intended his film to be faithful to the book. But now he's spilling even more details about his plans—and those plans could include 3-D!

In an interview with our friends over at IGN, the director of Taken and From Paris With Love talked about how he was intimidated by the project, and that he had to "erase the image that David Lynch did" in order to proceed. But he also said that—

"I'd love it to be 3D, of course. It's the kind of movie that has the scope to be 3D. Will they do it in 3D? I'd push for that, but I don't know. As a viewer, I've just been watching Avatar with my kids twice in the theater already and had a blast. It's an amazing experience."

So what do you think? Would a 3-D take add to a new cinematic Dune? Or would it just be a distraction?
