Producers Bruce Hendrix and Galen Walker have opted for the thriller rights, with a production eye on the film starting in late 2021.
Veteran producers Bruce Hendrick and Galen Walker have opted for the rights to the late Stanley Kubrick’s unmanned film Lunatic at Large, and plan to bring film-noir storylines to the big screen.
Production is expected to begin in 2021. “The opportunity to bring a Stanley Kubrick
project to the screen after so many years is like a dream come true. “We are eager to make a film keeping in mind his unique style and vision,” Walker said in a statement.
After his passing, the project was one of three film stories found in Kubrick’s archives. Kubrick, who collaborated with writer and screenwriter Jim Thompson on the 70-page treatment, intended to direct the film at some point.
Details of the plot are wrapped up, but Hendrix and partner Alan Ett will produce through their company, Emerald Bay Entertainment, and Walker and partner Evette Hawsey through their company Fineline Media.
Emerald Bay is represented by The Gersh Agency and Industry Entertainment. Attorney Kevin Koloff handled the negotiations for Emerald Bay and Fineline Media. Roger Arrar and Loeb of Loeb represented the Kubrick Trust.
