Spielberg To Develop Kubrick’s ‘Napoleon’ For TV Mini Series

Steven Spielberg

Steven Spielberg is set to take on another one of Stanley Kubrick’s projects, but this time he will be taking it to the our smaller screens. The script for NAPOLEON looks at the life of the French Emperor and when Kubrick planned the project back in the 60s, it was cancelled due to the cost of filming locations. Speaking in an interview, he said:

“I’ve been developing Stanley Kubrick’s screenplay — for a miniseries not for a motion picture — about the life of Napoleon. Kubrick wrote the script in 1961, a long time ago…”

At least Spielberg will not have any trouble doing any research as Kubrick left behind an entire catalog of location pictures and research. There is even a first draft of Kubrick’s NAPOLEON script, which is on display at University of The Arts in London (you can check out the script here)

This is not the first time that Spielberg has taken on Kubrick’s work, with Spielberg completing the movie A.I. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, something Kubrick had been working on since the 70s. Looks set to be another busy year for Steven Spielberg!
