Stanley Kubrick Wanted Terry Gilliam To Direct SON OF STRANGELOVE
I had the chance to ask Gilliam about it directly earlier today at the Sitges Film Festival and here's what he had to say:
Titled Son Of Strangelove the script was never completed but index cards laying out the basic structure of the story were found among Southern's papers after his passing, with the story set largely in underground bunkers where Strangelove has taken refuge with a group of (at least mostly, possibly entirely) women.I was told after Kubrick died - by someone who had been dealing with him - that he had been interested in trying to do another Strangelove with me directing. I never knew about that until after he died but I would have loved to.
Put this one down as a great combination that will sadly never happen ...
