Coming off the heels of a huge awards season for his acclaimed film Lincoln, Stephen Spielberg will be transitioning to the small screen to work on a project written by the late filmmaker Stanley Kubrick.
"I've been developing a Stanley Kubrick screenplay for a miniseries -- not for a motion picture -- about the life of Napoleon," Spielberg told French TV network Canal+ (via The Hollywood Reporter). Kubrick, who passed away in 1999, wrote the biopic about the French dictator in 1961 but the film was never completed, reportedly due to "budget and production challenges."
This wouldn't be Spielberg's first time working on one of Kubrick's projects. The 66-year-old director also worked on 2001's AI: Artificial Intelligence film that was conceived by Kubrick and written/directed by Spielberg.
What do you think? Is Spielberg the right man for the job when it comes to Kubrick's work?
