Who should direct 'Napoleon' if Steven Spielberg doesn't?
We review some potential helmers who could do Kubrick right
Who better to bring the epic nature of Napoleon's life to the screen than Ang Lee? The two-time Oscar winner has shown a masterful touch of jumping from one genre to another (including European period with "Sense and Sensibility") while bringing his own unique vision to each film. "Napoleon" would give him the chance to tackle one of the few things missing form his impressive resume, a massive war scene. Ang Lee's take on the Battle of Waterloo? Who could say no to that?*
