Even today, director Stanley Kubrick is considered one of the greatest visual storytellers known to mankind. In the decades that film fans have grown to love his work, he has been renowned as a man with a vision. He had things he wanted to say with his movies, and whether you like it or not, he will let the film speak.

He was a textbook control freak behind the camera, with even the smallest of nuances — even the seemingly random ones — taking place on screen very purposefully. All you need to do is watch a documentary on the dude to know just how much work went into his movies, and it becomes clear that he is a genius, even if you’re not too thrilled with his work.

It’s been around two decades since we lost the man, and while his influence is widespread, we will never again see another movie from him…right? Maybe not. According to a new report from The Guardian, the script called Burning Secret — an adaptation of a 1913 novel of the same thing from Stefan Zweig — has just been discovered. The discovery of the “lost” script was made by film professor at Bangor University, who said:

“I couldn’t believe it. It’s so exciting. It was believed to have been lost. 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.”

The film told the story of a predatory man who befriends a 10-year-old to seduce his married mother. In the piece from the outlet, it’s coined as sort of a reverse Lolita, which is another movie Kubrick directed. Apparently, the screenplay was so close to being done, that it could very well be developed into a feature film.

How would you feel about the movie getting made? Sound off down below!
