LOST STANLEY KUBRICK SCREENPLAY FOUND: A British university professor says he’s found a long-lost screenplay by the iconic director Stanley Kubrick. The play is titled Burning Secret, and is an adaptation of a 1913 novel of the same name by Stefan Zweig. The story follows an insurance salesman who befriends a boy at a spa resort in order to seduce his married mother. Kubrick wrote the play in 1956 with Calder Willingham (The Graduate). Nathan Abrams told The Guardian of finding the late director’s play: "Kubrick aficionados know he wanted to do it, but no one ever thought it was completed. We now have a copy and this proves that he had done a full screenplay." MGM gave the play the greenlight, but it was never made. TBD if the long-lost play will be resuscitated.
