Disclaimer: This petition is made by fans of Stanley Kubrick. We are not filmmakers, but simply fans with a dream we hope will come true. Thank you.

Recently a lost script for an unmade Kubrick movie from 1956 called "Burning Secret" was found and for years, devote Kubrick fans have wondered and hoped that a script would be found and now it has been found but sadly, it was recently auctioned off to an unknown buyer. 

Me and my friends are huge Stanley Kubrick fans and we were all thrilled to hear the script was recovered and hoped it would be possibly adapted but with the script auctioned off, we worry it may get lost or possibly stolen and never made.  

For those who don't know, "Burning Secret" was sadly never made by M.G.M. due to it being very similar to Kubrick's 1962 controversial film "Lolita" and due to the screenplay being based on the 1913 Stefan Zwieg book of the same name and due to its content and plot about possible child abuse and the Censorship laws at the time, M.G.M. refused to adapt it but now, decades later, it could possibly now happen. 

My goal for this petition is to reach as many signatures as possible, and then find a way to send this petition into the hands of Vivian Kubrick, Stanley's daughter, who worked on his later films such as "Full Metal Jacket" and "Eyes Wide Shut" and she  has vast knowledge of her dad's work along with his widow Christiane.

2019 is also 20 years since we lost this remarkable and visionary filmmaker, so let's honour him by hopefully getting this screenplay made.
