The Killing / World War Z

The Downslope: Stanley Kubrick, just 28 at the time, wrote The Downslope, a "sweeping, historical action-drama" set during the Civil War, way back in 1956. Now the original screenplay will be developed into a big-screen trilogy, with the first picture to be directed by Marc Forster (World War Z). Kubrick, who died in 1999, worked on plans to film The Downslope for years after he wrote the script, but circumstances never worked out for him to make it. [Deadline]
