Kubrick's Napolean Will Be Brought to Life By Steven Spielberg

Kubrick's Napolean Will Be Brought to Life By Steven Spielberg
Academy award winning director Steven Spielberg will once again be bringing a Stanley Kubrick unfinished script to life, though this time not to the big screen like in he did with A.I. in 2001. This time round Spielberg will be turning Kubrick's "Napoleon" into a mini-series for TV, the director told French station Canal+.

"I've been developing Stanley Kubrick's screenplay for a miniseries, not for a motion picture, about the life of Napoleon," Spielberg said.

The director who passed away in 1999 completed the script in 1961after extensive research before MGM and United Artists pulled the plug on the project due to rising costs. With his track record of producing great historical mini-series such as "Band of Brothers" and "The Pacific" hopefully Spielberg will get Kubrick's "Napoleon" to our screens in the near future.
