Lost Stanley Kubrick Movie In Production And Starring ScarJo!!


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???
