Two Unproduced Stanley Kubrick Scripts to be Turned into TV Films

Posted: August 30th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Two Unproduced Stanley Kubrick Scripts to be Turned into TV FilmsSubmit Comment
Entertainment One has acquired the rights to two unproduced Stanely Kubrick screenplays, called "Downslope" and "God Fearing Man," and with the help of producers Steve Lanning and Philip Hobbs (Full Metal Jacket), the independent studio will develop both projects for television.

Downslope: Based on the true story by Civil War historian Shelby Foote and revolves around Confederate Army Col. John Mosby and his plot to settle the score after Union Gen. George Custer captures and hangs several of his men.

God Fearing Man: The true story of Canadian minister Herbert Emerson Wilson, who went on to become one of the best safe-crackers and most successful American bank robbers in the early 20th century.

Kubrick is the man behind such films as "2001: A Space Odyssey," "A Clockwork Orange," "The Shining," "Full Metal Jacket," and "Eyes Wide Shut." He died in 1999 at the age of 70.

"Arent true stories public domain?"

No. Stories don't write themselves, thus, they are, based on truth or not, creative works covered under American/international IP law.

"Do you really need Kubrick to tell a true story?"

No. And it's better if he doesn't. We saw what he did with the story of America's first moon landing in '2001'. Totally annoying fiction, and Neil never even comes home.
