Former "The Walking Dead" show runner and "The Shield" producer Glen Mazzara is in negotiations to pen the screenplay "Overlook Hotel".

The project is being described as a prequel to Stephen King's horror classic "The Shining". The story explores what transpired at said hotel long before author Jack Torrance brought his family there and went crazy.

The project marks Mazzara's first job since he left the popular AMC series.
