STANLEY KUBRICK'S 'AI'
BURBANK, Calif., Nov. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Stanley Kubrick's next film for Warner Bros. will be "AI" -- the abbreviation for artificial intelligence -- an epic science fiction story set in a future when intelligent robots serve in many capacities, the greenhouse effect has melted the ice caps and many great cities are drowned. New Jersey has become the shoreline and New York's eroding and crumbling skyscrapers are ancient monuments rearing up from the Atlantic Ocean. The film is planned for production later next year. Kubrick had originally worked on the project for two years before putting it aside in 1991 when he felt the visuals were beyond the then state-of-the-art in special effects. But the recent advances in special-effects technology, especially in CGI (Computer Graphic Imaging) so impressively presented in "Jurassic Park," has convinced him that now virtually anything is possible. Kubrick had been preparing to produce and direct "Aryan Papers," a story set in the Nazi Holocaust, based on Louis Begley's novel "Wartime Lies," which he will now either produce but not direct early next year, or direct himself after "AI" is completed. -0- 11/1/93 /CONTACT: Stacy Ivers of Warner Bros., 818-954-6217/
