    We have a dozen Napoleon movies or TV films overhere , one more can't hurt. Let's see how Spielberg handles the character.

    Spielberg adapting Kubrick's screenplay? Spielberg and Kubrick are my two favorite directors of all time, but thats because they have two distinct styles. It would be better if Spielberg adapted his own screenplay, and interpretation of Napoleon's life instead of adapting Kubrick's.

    Luhrmann can add to the period authenticity by having the soundtrack consist of Dubstep.

    Didn't Speilberg already try this once with A.I., and it turned out pretty bad?

    A.I. was actually kind of good in my opinion.
