September 2nd, 2012 by Owen Quinn Comments

Stanley Kubrick is one of cinema’s most prolific film-makers, now it seems that, despite his death, Kubrick is set to take TV by storm…

Two scripts from the late Stanley Kubrick are to be turned into both a television movie and mini-series it has been revealed.

Entertainment On and Philco films which is run by Kubrick’s son-in-law Philip Hobbs and Steve Lanning, both of whom worked closely with the man himself before his passing. The mini-series is called God Fearing Man about a preacher that became one of the most notorious bank robbers and safe crackers in history, while the movie is Downslope which sees General Custer hunted down in revenge by John Mosbey for hanging some of his men. Scripts are currently being written.

Husband, dad and Ireland's hardest working author, Owen Quinn is currently knee deep in The Time Warriors, arguably the biggest sci-fi epic ever to come out of Ireland. He has an unhealthy interest in Doctor Who, classic TV and Star Wars, he also hangs around with the Emerald Garrison far toooo much. Is it any wonder he fits in at FTN so well? Find Owen at the
