Napoleon Cary Fukunaga Banner

A few years ago we brought you word that Baz Luhrmann was in talks to direct an HBO miniseries based on Stanley Kubrick's unfilmed screenplay about the life of Napoleon Bonaparte, with Steven Spielberg producing.

But last week a retrospective was held for the filmmaker at De Montfort University, and according to Stanley Kubrick and Me author Filippo Ulivieri, Kubrick's brother-in-law Jan Harlan (who also executive produced several of his movies) said that Cary Fukunaga of True Detective and BEASTS OF NO NATION fame will helm the six-hour miniseries. Apparently Harlan also said David Leland will be working on the script.

I wouldn't take this as confirmation that the miniseries will actually happen with Fukunaga directing, but maybe the project isn't dead like many assumed, and hopefully we'll be hearing more about it in the near future. Do you think Fukunaga is a good fit for to direct HBO's Napoleon?

I think Fukunaga has the chops to take on a Kubrick vision...

I just don't know if anyone really wants to watch a Napoleon mini-series?

You don't pander to the audience. You change their perception of what they thought they wanted.

Fukunaga for the win!

The guy has proven himself with True Detective and Beasts of No Nation that he is more than capable of guiding any project with precision and a key eye. I love the guy's commitment to standing by his vision and not compromising it for the sake of studio input. However, I was very sad when he dropped out of the IT remake.
