Stanley Kubrick Script 'The Downslope' Will Be New Film Trilogy

( A script first penned by Stanley Kubrick in the 1950s is now headed for the big screen. According to Deadline, Kubrick's 1956 screenplay The Downslope will now become a film trilogy, and at least the first installment will be produced and directed by Marc Forster (Finding Neverland, Monsters Ball, World War Z).

The Downslope is a Civil War drama that Kubrick wrote based on a true story by Civil War historian Shelby Foote. Described as an anti-war film, the story centers on the attempts of Confederate Army Colonel John S. Mosby to settle the score with General Custer, who captured and hanged some of his men. The project has also been referred to as Mosby's Rangers, about a "Southern guerilla force in the American Civil War."

According to The Wrap, Lauren Selig, Barry Levine and Renee Wolfe are the key producers, and the Kubrick family is supporting the project as well. Read more here. is an official news provider for
