Kubrick Scripts In Development For TV

According to TorontoFilm.Net, LA/Toronto-based Entertainment One (eOne) has teamed with Steve Lanning and Philip Hobbs to develop and produce the television dramas "Downslope" and "God Fearing Man" from scripts by the late great filmmaker Stanley Kubrick.
Based on a true story by historian Shelby Foote, Kubrick's "Downslope" is a US Civil War-set drama following Confederate Army 'Colonel John S. Mosby' and his plot to settle the score after Union officer 'George Custer' captures and hangs several of his men.
Kubrick's "God Fearing Man" adapted for TV by Stephen R. Clarke, follows the true story of  'Herbert Emerson Wilson' who became one of the most successful safe-cracker and bank robber in America in the early 20th century.
Both projects will be produced by Entertainment One in association with Philco Films’ Steve Lanning ("The Secret Garden") and Philip Hobbs who worked with Kubrick on a number of projects including "Full Metal Jacket".
