article imageSpielberg revives Kubrick's Napoleon

By Richard Mccallum     Mar 4, 2013 in Entertainment
Paris - Regarded by many critics and viewers alike as perhaps the foremost cinematic auteur of the 20th century, Stanley Kubrick's legendary and problematic version of the biography of Napoleon Bonaparte is being prepared as a TV mini-series by Steven Spielberg.
During an interview with France's Canal Plus, Spielberg said he was "developing Stanley Kubrick's screenplay- for a mini series not a motion picture - about the life of Napoleon.
Kubrick wrote the script in 1961."
If Spielberg is greenlit for the project it would be a second time for him to finish an unrealized work of Kubrick.
Following his SK' s death in 1999 Spielberg released "A. I. Artificial Intelligence" in 2001 which was based on a short story by Brian Aldiss titled " Super Toys Last All Summer Long."
Kubrick could not convince either United Artists or MGM to finance the biopic, and settled for making Barry Lyndon instead in 1975.
If you would like to read Kubrick's 1969 version of the script, it is available here.
