Lost Stanley Kubrick Movie In Production And Starring ScarJo!!

| Filed under: Film FlickersR.I.P.Scarlett Johansson


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!

Hobbs says:

"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???

    AI was a Kubrick project he never worked on as a director. He handed the thing to Spielberg. By the way, most critics loved that film.

    curiousred is correct - AI was originally proposed as kubrick production/spielberg film - kubrick himself wanted spielberg to man the lens with stanley obviously holding the creative weight - had kubrick still be alive - it probably would have been one hell of a picture. and for the record mr. perez - eyes wide shut was not a post humous release - not really anyway - he was alive and well during and all the way through post production only to pass a few weeks later - so yes he was deceased when it hit screens but only for a few months at most. just sayin—–

    Eyes wide shut wasn't even a posthumous film, he directed and made it. i guess he did die before it was released but still.
