NFT Bros BLOW 3 MILLION On DUNE Book & Think They OWN The Franchise! (They Don’t)

TheQuartering [1/17/2022]

According to Indy100:

A group of Cryptobros spent $3 million buying a copy of a book about Alejandro Jodorowsky’s attempt to make Dune, believing that it gave them the rights.

The group going by the name Spice DAO tweeted that they had bought an original copy of thebook where the avant-garde Chilean filmmaker compiled his notes, concepts and artwork as he attempted and ultimately failed to make the sci-fi epic in the 1970s.

The book was made famous by a documentary released in 2013 called Jodorowsky’s Dune, which documented the arduous efforts to get the film made which was eventually binned after it was deemed to be far too long expensive.
