|Stephany Folsom and Clark Gregg|
The script details how the US Government recruited Stanley Kubrick to fake the moon landing when it appeared the real thing might not be feasible. The conspiracy theory behind the story has been around since the '70s, and Kubrick himself liked to tease the audience by planting Apollo 11 clues in his films. Folsom's script takes that ball and runs with it, throwing difficult Kubrick into an almost buddy-movie situation with feisty government agent named Barbara Penn. The yarn is clever and seems to get Kubrick right.
1969 made the Black List last year and launched Folsom in a big way. She recently landed a deal to adapt Harlan Coben's best-seller "Missing You" for Brett Ratner and Ratpac Entertainment. Given the big industry crowd tonight, can a movie be far behind? perhaps not, as Kurtzman + Orci are attached as producers. A big win for Folsom and screenwriters everywhere.
