'Here's Johnny…'s Dad'?! Is A Shining Prequel In The Works?

Jack Nicholson Shining Prequel Warner Bros Stephen King FIlm Flickers

For realzies?

Warner Bros unofficially announced they're developing a prequel to The Shining!!

That idea is more cray than Jack Nicholson busting through our bathroom door with an axe!!

First Psycho got a prequel TV series, then it was Silence of the Lambs' turn, and now Stanley Kubrick's horror masterpiece might enjoy be subjected to the same treatment?

Prequels and sequels are one rung further up the ladder than remakes but the trend is disconcerting!

It's obviously a bit too early to talk plot but Stephen King's novel contains tons of allusions to previous murders and mayhem within the horrifically haunted Overlook Motel. We imagine there are tons of different directions they could turn!

Tread lightly, WB. The Shining is an all time classic!

    Nicholson just old turd in punch bowl anymore. Remake movie with new/young cast!

    The Overlook was not a MOTEL, dumb shit. It was HOTEL. How is it you manage to get so little right? Are you that fucking lazy, that fucking stupid, or both?

    Stephen King is a shit writer. He managed to write, early on, a few decent books. But the vast majority is crap.

    Re: Yes You Bore Me – Stephen King didn't approve of Stanley Kubrick's film and eventually collaborated and approved of the t.v. version starring Steven Weber, Rebecca deMornay. That "version" was more in keeping with King's original plot and not so much a star vehicle hype for Kubrick and Nicholson.
    I recently watched 2001 A Space Odyssey and promptly fell asleep. I was bored with all of the trivial visual crap. Kubrick films can be easily dated. Stephen King's talent lies in his ability to draw the reader into the dark corners of one's own imagination without self-restrictions.
