Rare 1970 'Dune' Storyboard Set To Hit Christie's Auction Block

Christie’s is auctioning off the storyboard for Alejandro Jodorowsky’s ill-fated adaptation of Dune. Often described as the “greatest movie that was never made,” the film was known to be one of the most famous doomed projects in cinematic history.

The particular manuscript of Jodorowsky’s ’70s adaptation of Frank Herbert’s book was seen as a mammoth project that brought together the likes of Mick Jagger, Salvador Dalí, Orson Wells, Alain Delon and David Carradine to star in the cast. The film, unfortunately, did not see the light of day and now the storyboard auctioned by Christie’s has become one of the few manuscripts that give fans a glimpse of what could have been.

According to the auction house, the storyboard is only one of 10 copies and is estimated to sell between €25,000 EUR and €35,000 EUR ($29,000 USD and $40,000 USD). The piece goes on sale in Paris on November 22 and will be on display to the public in Christie’s Paris gallery from November 18 to 22. For more information, check out Christie’s.
