Strange that they would be thinking of doing a prequel when Stephen King is just about to release a sequel(Dr Sleep),but then again Stephen King wasn't over the moon about Kubrick's version of The Shining(I think he liked it as a film,but not as an adaptation of his book)

For Some Reason, Warner Bros. Might Be Making a Prequel to 'The Shining'


Quote
The outlet reports that the studio has tapped "Hollywood writer-producer Laeta Kalogridis and her partners Bradley Fischer and James Vanderbilt to craft a new take as producers." This prequel would "focus on what happened before Jack Torrance (of course played memorably onscreen by Jack Nicholson), his wife and their psychic son arrived at the haunted retreat where Torrance soon descends into violent madness." A prequel that focuses on things that happen before the events of the original film! Insane!

While this idea might sound, at least at first blush, startlingly wrong-headed, there are some intriguing elements of the first time that lend themselves to a look back in time - but they don't necessarily involve the rest of Torrance's family. Fans of the film might be interested in going back to a time many years before the action of the original "Shining," a time without either Wendy or Danny Torrance, but that doesn't sound like the direction that this project might be going in.

This.  I saw it yesterday and thought it was such a bad idea I couldn't even do a post about it.  now any foulness that comes of this will be upon MO's head!

bet it will be good,LOL  icon_wink


I Actually liked that mini series of The Shining that was based more of the book(and Stephen King cameoed in it),although i did like the Kubrick version as well

The shit happening in the Overlook hotel decades before what happened in the first film/book could be interesting i guess,maybe we will see what happened to those two girls/twins who i think was killed by the Janitor before Jack..its been awhile with the book,film and mini series to be honest

maybe find out more about The Shinning*


Anyway,i am still more interested in the follow up book when Stephen King says that it will be "a return to balls-to-the-wall, keep-the-lights-on horror"...because he has strayed away from real horror for some time

see, having it not explained makes even more creepier.  it's when you start explaining stuff that you end up with Midi-chlorians and Jar jar Binks.

ahh Jar Jar Binks,sorry i was miles off with the Janitor.....knew it started with a J though  Tongue


anyway,
Only if you let George Lucas way of storytelling ruin every movie prequel possibility for yourself,then yeah you will think like that..there's been some good movie prequels,hasn't there?...HASN'T THERE?

Are you saying Jar Jar isn't creepy enough for you?  You're sick, man.
