‘Lunatic at Large’, which is one of three film screenplays found in Kubrick’s library after he died in 1999, was originally made in collaboration with author and screenwriter Jim Thompson.
Kubrick, whose seminal filmography includes ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’, ‘Dr. Strangelove’, ‘The Shining’ and ‘Eyes Wide Shut’, had intended to direct ‘Lunatic at Large’ at some point.
While plot details and information about the 70-page Kubrick’s unmade project remains under wraps, producers described the script as a “film-noir thriller in keeping with other collaborations between Kubrick and his frequent collaborator, screenwriter Jim Thompson.”
Production is slated to begin in fall 2021 through Emerald Bay Entertainment and FineLine Media.
