Like Forman, Polanski strikes me as a filmmaker who would be a perfect fit for this material. He's navigated period waters with unique aplomb throughout his career and there's a shared residue between his work and Kubrick's that would make the exploration all the more intriguing. Spielberg would surely love to bring him on board: he added his name to a petition trying to help the director avoid extradition to face a possible jail sentence for his 1979 rape conviction a few years ago and even tried to get Polanski to helm "Schindler's List" once upon a time.
