Stephen King Sounds Off on The Shining Prequel, The Overlook Hotel
Yesterday the news broke that former “The Walking Dead” showrunner Glen Mazzara was in talks to bring a prequel to The Shining entitled The Overlook Hotel to life. Today Stephen King himself sounded off on the project.
“I’m not saying I would put a stop to the project because I’m sort of a nice guy,” King tells Entertainment Weekly. “When I was a kid, my mother said, ‘Stephen if you were a girl, you’d always be pregnant.’ I have a tendency to let people develop things. I’m always curious to see what will happen. But you know what? I would be just as happy if it didn’t happen.”
Sounds like he’s kind of numb to the project. How couldn’t he be after seeing his work bastardized time and time again. Still, we retain some hope. Look for more on this one soon. In the interim tell us what you think in our comments section!
