Stanley Kubrick has another film in the works - despite having passed away 11 years ago!
Production is now underway for the film, Lunatic at Large, which is based off a treatment written by the acclaimed director and pulp writer Jim Thompson back in the late 1950s. Kubrick apparently misplaced the project, and his son-in-law, Phillip Hobbs, discovered it going through his estate back in 1999!
"I remember Stanley talking about Lunatic. He was always saying he wished he knew where it was, because it was such a great idea."
The film involves a group of characters, including a temperamental ex-carnival worker and a barfly, living in NYC in 1956. The audience must attempt to figure out which one is an escaped mental patient/axe murderer!
Scarlett Johansson and Sam Rockwell are both attached to star!
Hopefully this one will work out better than the last two posthumous releases of Kubrick films - AI and Eyes Wide Shut just did not measure up!!
What do U think?? Will U go see Lunatic at Large???
