Michel Seydoux parle du story-board du "Dune" de Jodorowsky

Michel Seydoux ([sɛdu]; born 11 September 1947) is a French businessman and film producer. He also serves as the president and chairman of French club Lille OSC.


In 1975-1976, Seydoux worked with director Alejandro Jodorowsky on a film adaptation of Frank Herbert's Dune. The movie was never made due to lack of financing; the story of the project is told in Jodorowsky's Dune, which prominently features Seydoux.

In 1997 he was a member of the jury at the 20th Moscow International Film Festival.
