Baz Luhrmann eyed for Napoleon miniseries

November 27th, 2013 by bash Comments

Variety are reporting that Baz Luhrmann could be set to direct an HBO miniseries based on the life of Napoleon.

Steven Spielberg will produce from an original concept developed by Stanley Kubrick.

Kubrick did extensive research on the French emperor for two years. A feature film was well into pre-production when the studio pulled the plug and cancelled the project.

The new take is said to work from his 1961 screenplay.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
