The Overlook Hotel Finds a New Caretaker in Director Mark RomanekSome quick news has come in for the proposed prequel to The Shining, entitled The Overlook Hotel, as Variety is reporting that Mark Romanek is in negotiations to helm the project for Warner Bros.

Former “The Walking Dead” showrunner Glen Mazzara recently turned in his draft for the original story with Mythology’s Brad Fischer, James Vanderbilt, and Laeta Kalogridis producing.

Based on Stephen King’s original prologue to The Shining, which was cut from the book prior to publication in 1977, the film will tell the origin story of the Overlook Hotel through the eyes of its first owner, Bob T. Watson. A robber baron at the turn of the 20th century, Watson scaled the remote peaks of the Colorado Rockies to build the grandest resort in America and a place he and his family would also call home.
