Plans are afoot to turn two of movie director Stanley Kubrick's ideas into television shows. One will be a made-for-TV movie while the other is now envisioned as a mini-series.
The son-in-law of Kubrick, Philip Hobbs, and another person named Steve Lanning are developing the projects under their Philco Films banner.
Downslope is the title of the proposed television movie. Set in 18th century America, it would follow the revenge-fueled mission of defeated Confederate Army Colonel John S. Mosby, and his path to exact vengeance on General Custer.
The television series is called God Fearing Man. Using the screenplay that Kubrick wrote but never made, screenwriter Stephen R. Clarke turned it into a mini-series. God Fearing Man is about Canadian minister Herbert Emerson Wilson and his turn as a bank robber in the early portion of the 20th century.
Global entertainment company eOne is involved with financing and eventual distribution of the two projects, with one of their executives calling the shows "real event television." No expected release dates or production schedules were given.
Considered by many film critics to be one of the most original voices in cinema, Stanley Kubrick made such movies as Lolita, Spartacus, 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, Full Metal Jacket and his last film, Eyes Wide Shut. Kubrick passed away shortly before the release of Eyes Wide Shut in 1999.
