A “Shining” Prequel On The Way

Warner Bros. Pictures is reportedly “exploring the possibility” of a prequel to Stanley Kubrick’s classic film adaptation of Stephen King’s horror novel “The Shining” reports The Los Angeles Times.

The prequel would focus on what happened before Jack Torrance and his family arrived at the Overlook Hotel in the original.

“Shutter Island” scribe Laeta Kalogridis along with partners Bradley Fischer and James Vanderbilt would produce the feature, however a Warners spokeswoman says it’s “in a very early stage and not even formally in development.”
