Kubrick Scripts Being Turned Into Film, TV

Entertainment One and Philco Films are teaming to produce both a TV movie and a mini-series based on two unproduced screenplays of the late Stanley Kubrick reports Deadline.

The telemovie, entitled “Downslope”, follows the activities of Confederate Army Colonel John S. Mosby who sets out to settle the score after Custer captures and hangs several of his men.

The mini-series is “God Fearing Man” and follows Canadian minister Herbert Emerson Wilson who became one of the best safe-crackers and most successful bank robbers in early 20th century America. Stephen R. Clarke is adapting the script for television.

Steve Lanning and Kubrick’s son-in-law Philip Hobbs, who both worked closely with the filmmaker for more than fifteen years, run Philco Films. They took the projects to eOne which produces such shows as AMC’s”Hell on Wheels”, DirecTV’s “Call Me Fitz” and ABC’s “Rookie Blue”.
