Having successfully brought Abraham Lincoln to the screen, Steven Spielberg has already set his sights on another titan of history: Napoleon. In an interview with Canal + Television in France, Spielberg, who was recently named  jury head at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival , revealed that he's planning to turn a decades-old screenplay about the French leader written by the late great Stanley Kubrick into a miniseries. “I've been developing Stanley Kubrick's screenplay - for a miniseries not for a motion picture - about the life of Napoleon,” Spielberg said.

Warner Bros. does pretty well in the picture business--and now finds itself also selling armaments. That is, the London office is selling 60 M-16 guns, 50 M-14 guns, two M-60 machine guns; 40 AK-47s and "a lot of extraneous war supplies" (like flak jackets and hand grenades). It's all leftover from Stanley Kubrick's Vietnam War production of "Full Metal Jacket," due this summer.

The sleek logo for LACMA's “art+film” gala does a beautiful job of balancing “art” and “film,” giving each word equal space around the plus sign. The museum gala that took place Saturday night under that rubric was another story: The entertainment world easily outshone the art world, and the evening designed to celebrate artist Ed Ruscha alongside filmmaker Stanley Kubrick became mainly a Kubrick odyssey, to borrow the title of the screening series that accompanies LACMA's new Kubrick exhibition.

Gustavo Dudamel's debut album with the Berlin Philharmonic will be released in September and will spotlight music by Richard Strauss, including "Thus Spake Zarathustra," "Don Juan" and "Till Eulenspiegel's Merry Pranks. " The album, which is scheduled to be released by Deutsche Grammophon on Sept. 17, was recorded with the Berlin Philharmonic during concerts in 2012 and 2013. The release of the album will also mark a special occasion -- next year is the 150th birthday of Strauss, who was born in Munich.  Dudamel said in a statement that the recording was both an honor and a challenge because "as soon as you think of 'Zarathustra,' you think of the Berlin Philharmonic, and of [Herbert von]

On Nov. 21, 1963, film critics were planning to catch a special preview of Stanley Kubrick's "Dr. Strangelove " the next day. But when the news came from Dallas on Nov. 22, those plans changed. "NEVER HELD ... THE DAY KENNEDY WAS SHOT," one guest scribbled on an invitation that resurfaced Friday on Reddit and other social media (see below), with many identifying the handwriting as Kubrick's own. Though it's difficult to confirm the source of the writing, city guide TimeOut London reported on a Kubrick exhibition that included an invitation card with the same text written on it in the director's handwriting.

When director Stanley Kubrick and novelist Vladimir Nabokov brought Nabokov's controversial novel "Lolita" to the screen in 1962, they cast 15-year-old newcomer Sue Lyon in the title role without specifying her age, which in the book was only 12. Most critics said that Lyon looked closer to 17, thus undercutting seriously the impact of the exquisite torture Nabokvov's middle-aged Humbert Humbert endured in his fixation on what the novelist described famously as a "nymphet."
