Here's what the filmmaker had to say in a recent interview.
"I've been developing Stanley Kubrick's screenplay for a miniseries, not for a motion picture, about the life of Napoleon. Kubrick wrote the script in 1961, long time ago. And the Kubrick family, because we made A.I.: Artificial Intelligence together, the Kubrick family and I, the next project we are working on, the miniseries is going to be Napoleon."
Stanley Kubrick tried to make his Napoleon movie throughout the 1960s before abandoning it in the early 1970s after no Hollywood studio would finance the project. The late filmmaker researched the French leader for years, and offered the lead roles to Oskar Werner and Audrey Hepburn.
It isn't known if Steven Spielberg is working with a screenwriter for this mini-series, or if it has a network home at this time. He has previously produced the popular mini-series' Band of Brothers and The Pacific, both of which aired on HBO. We also reported in January that Steven Spielberg is reuniting with Tom Hanks and HBO for a third World War II mini-series.
