There’s a great interview with Jan Harlan who was a close associate of Stanley Kubrick on the new Stanley Kubrick DVD Collection at blogcritics.org. The collection sounds amazing, but it seems to be lacking Dr. Strangelove, Lolita, and Barry Lyndon. However I did get excited about this Napoleon book that will be coming out:

On a side note, are there any other Kubrick-related projects in the works fans can look forward to? Back when it was briefly leaked on the Internet, I had heard rumors of the Napoleon screenplay being released as a book.

You are right. TASCHEN publishers will bring out a comprehensive book on Stanley Kubrick‚Äôs Napoleon. Not just the script and treatment, which is not really revealing his true interest in person of Napoleon anyway, but also many pre-production details, designs etc. Stanley had 17000 images carefully collected, re-photographed on 35mm film and mounted in IBM cards for later sorting by clumsy machines. This was the state of the art in 1969. His library on the topic was huge and so was his knowledge. ”
