This unmade film would have marked the only on screen appearance of the character Lady Margot Fenring. Despite being a high ranking Bene Gesserit and part of their machinations in Herbert's novel, the character was entirely omitted from the David Lynch film. Her role in the story was taken by Princess Irulan in the SyFy Channel miniseries version. Margot's husband, Count Hasimir Fenring, also had a significant role in Jodorowsky's script, only to be omitted entirely from Lynch's film. Unlike his wife, he did appear in the SyFy miniseries, but in a substantially reduced role from his one in the book. See more »

And we never got it. Due to Hollywood being shortsighted. I appreciate the Dune movies we have, but I know they barely scrape the surface. The Jodorowsky treatment would turn the movie world upside down.
