A New Stanley Kubrick Movie?

By  | 

For all you fellow Kubrick fans…there’s this

Stanley Kubrick never threw anything away. On the other hand, he didn’t have much of a filing system, and when he moved � permanently, it turned out � from Hollywood to London in 1962, a great many things went astray. Among them was the sole copy of a film treatment called “Lunatic at Large,� which Mr. Kubrick had commissioned in the late ’50s from the noir pulp novelist Jim Thompson, with whom he had worked on “The Killing,� a 1956 bank-heist story that became his first successful feature, and then on 1957’s “Paths of Glory.�

The manuscript remained lost until after Mr. Kubrick’s death, in 1999, when his son-in-law, Philip Hobbs, working with an archivist, turned it up, along with a couple of other scripts, and set about trying to make it into a movie.

Very cool. I can’t wait.
