I have learned however that Warner Brothers is planning to produce the film based on Kubrick's script. Details are sketchy and no director has been announced yet. However the Internet is a vast and wonderful place and I have learned of rumors that Ridley Scott is interested in the script. Almost no details exist yet to confirm or deny this rumor, but it certainly is an interesting one.

Rest of article here.

If it does happen and for some reason Scott won't do it.. they should hunt down Julie Taymor.

Maybe Jean-Pierre Jeunet could do it, with Dominique Pinon as Napoleon himself.

I don't know of any directors out there who'd have ability to make a film like Barry Lyndon. So I'm not sure who a good directorial choice for this would be. A director with that little pity.

What about me for Napoleon? I'm short in stature and everything... I can't act though, but I don't see why it could be such a problem. I'm gonna keep my eyes wide open for casting sessions for the film and in a few year, you'll see me at the Academy Awards, with that golden dildo-like thing in my hand and thanking the Xixax boards who told me about the movie that was going to be made and then, well, I'd wake up and realize I had been dreaming and my life life is the same and I'm wearing the same five dollar shoes everyday.

Sorry for this post. I'm on crack.

My vote goes to Peter Dinklage:

Keep those jazz hands up, Peter! You're doing great!

Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

When I was at the Kubrick exhibit earlier this year, someone asked Jan Harlan about that, and he said (if I remember correctly) that they did want to still make it, but that the prospects of it scared a lot of people. I know he mentioned Ang Lee at one point, although it might have been in a different context....

I've been trying to think of directors that could pull this off - obviously no one could do justice to kubrick's vision

my stock in ang lee has plumetted.

i'd imagine many filmmakers being intimidated by this -- would be a lot on their shoulders in teh critical community. they'd almost be setting themselves up for scrutiny and failure.

I had read an article about 2 years ago that Mark Romanek had expressed interest. From what I can gather Romanek is a hardcore kubrick admirer/wannabe - i've even heard that the beard he wears was bought/stolen from the kubrick estate.

i just hope spielberg doesnt take a crack at it.

id be curious to see Polanski take a crack

Your Ang Lee stock should come back up after Brokeback Mountain comes out in the fall. Which will then be followed by a slight slide if he does a Crouching Tiger prequel.

Jonathan Glazer has Romanek beat, as far as Kubrickation goes. Terence Malick would be an interesting choice, perhaps. Michael Mann does well with biopics and historical epics, so he could combine the two.
