Quote from: About a year and a half ago, The Gold Trumpet
In the late 1960s, the Beatles approached Kubrick to adapt Lord of the Rings into a movie and he declined calling it "unfilmmable."

A year and a half later I remembered that Kubrick is quoted as saying: "If it can be written, or thought, it can be filmed."

Don't know what to make of it.  Either someone misquoted him, or he contradicted himself.  Which, you know, happens.  Especially if you're a famous person whose words get recorded for posterity.

At the time he said it, he was right. It was a question of technology. Understand, the reason he took so long to get AI going was because he was waiting for the effects to reach his vision. So, yes, while it CAN be filmed, it's just a question of when.

CATCHING UP WITH STANLEY KUBRICK
Two more movies are on their way.  One, a 50's thriller called "Lunatic at Large", emerges from an arcane corner of teh filmmakers legend having to do with a treatment he commisioned from his Paths of Glory co-screenwriter, pulp author Jim Thompson, and then misplaced.  For some 40 years the manuscript was considered MIA-until producer Phillip Hobbs (who, as Kubricks son-in-law, worked closely with him on Full Metal Jacket and other projects) dug it up recently while sifting through some old papers.  According to Hobbs, Lunatic will, "with luck...be in production in late 2004."  Ditto "God Fearing Man", an early 20th centruy drama that would be the first original Kubrick-pened script produced since 1955's Killers Kiss.  No word on who'll star or direct.  "Stanley was involved in both projects in 1956 and 1957," says Hobbs, "and he never forgot either."


any development with either of these?

Blue Movie is apparantly being made by a UK director. He made 'It's all gone Pete Tong' a year or two ago. Hrmm. Great.

those who have the new edition of EWS: have any of you seen the extra feature on his unfinished projects?

i would really like to know what they say/show about Eric Brighteyes. also how much time is devoted to each project, and if there's anything like the great interview with Johanna ter Steege (star of aryan papers) that was posted by fernando a while ago:

http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=8573044396498461503&q=kubrick&hl=en

dvdbeaver doesn't say how long the featurette runs for, only that napoleon is covered, and i havn't read any other reviews so i hav no idea how much detail they get into.

That featurette is about 30 minutes and only really covers Napoleon and Aryan Papers, with each project sharing the running time. No interview with Johanna; only one with Joseph Mazzello, along with the production designer, the costumer, Jan, etc. They talk about what Kubrick liked about the project, how far in he was to filming it, and why it was eventually halted.

that's kinda disappointing actually.

then again, realistically i wouldn't be satisfied until i got a call from Jan himself.

Uma Thurman Confesses to Kubrick’s ‘Wartime Lies’
Source: MTV

The other day we brought you news that Uma Thurman declined a role in “Lord of the Rings,” a choice she now says was a huge mistake.

But in her storied career of more than two decades, there is one project that trumps even J.R.R. Tolkien’s fabled legendarium in Thurman’s own personal game of career What if … what if she had gotten to work with Stanley Kubrick?

“I was going to make a film with him — for a long time I was scheduled to make a film with him,” she said of “Wartime Lies,” a movie she was signed on to make with Kubrick in the early 90s. “I was contracted to do it and things happened and he shelved the film. He never made the film.”

The story of two Jewish family members, a young woman and her nephew, who disguise themselves as devout Catholics in order to avoid Nazi persecution, “Wartime Lies” was scrapped by the mercurial director after Steven Spielberg’s “Schindler’s List.” At the time, he was reputed to have concluded that an accurate film about the Holocaust was impossible — that the horrors of the era could never be captured on film.

His decision to move on to other projects was “devastating,” said Thurman.

“It was devastating because it was an incredible part,” she confessed. “It would have been the part of my career, the best part I ever had been offered or had written for me, or anything.”

Those are some big words for an actress who’s played Mia Wallace and the Bride. A new draft of “Wartime Lies” is being written by “The Departed” screenwriter William Monahan.

If you think this is going to have a happy ending, you haven't been paying attention.

No, that's fine.

Making them tv productions means they'll get the attention they deserve, which is very little.
