“Downslope” is the first of the new works to hit the small screen. The TV movie is described as “an epic Civil War drama following the activities of Confederate Army Colonel John S. Mosby and his plot to settle the score after Custer captures and hangs several of his men”.
The second, “God Fearing Man”, an an original screenplay by Kubrick rewritten by Stephen R. Clarkewill, be a mini-series that “tells the true story of Canadian minister Herbert Emerson Wilson who became one of the best safe-crackers and most successful bank robbers in America in the early 20th century”.
Both projects sound intriguing, it will be interesting to see the finished projects.
Maybe there will be a few one-point perspective shots has an homage to the great Kubrick.
