Producers Bruce Hendricks and Galen Walker have optioned the rights to the thriller, with an eye to production on a movie starting in late 2021.

Veteran producers Bruce Hendricks and Galen Walker have optioned the rights to the late Stanley Kubrick’s unmade film Lunatic At Large, and have plans to bring the film-noir storyline to the big screen.

Production is slated to begin in fall 2021. “The opportunity to bring a Stanley Kubrick project to the screen after so many years is a dream come true. We look forward to making a film in keeping with his unique style and vision," Walker said in a statement.

The project was one of three film stories found in Kubrick’s archives after his passing. Kubrick, who collaborated with author and screenwriter Jim Thompson on the 70-page treatment, had intended to direct the film at some point.

Plot details are under wraps, but Hendricks and partner Alan Ett will produce through their company, Emerald Bay Entertainment, and Walker and partner Ivett Havasi will produce through their company, FineLine Media.

Emerald Bay is represented by the Gersh Agency and Industry Entertainment. Attorney Kevin Koloff handled the negotiations for Emerald Bay and FineLine Media. Roger Arar of Loeb and Loeb represented the Kubrick Trust.
