For Some Reason, Warner Bros. Might Be Making a Prequel to 'The Shining'
It's also important to note that King himself is also working on a new "Shining" project - a sequel to his first novel that has not been (yet) picked up for a cinematic adaptation.
Do you want to see either a prequel or a sequel to "The Shining"?
If Stephen King is involved, I'll be fine with whatever he wants to do. He IS the original author, and it's his story to either write a prequel or sequel. Or neither.
Mr. King is of course welcome to expand on his own ideas, as we so love him to do. But I have to say the only redeeming qualities of the film were the performances of Jack Nicholson and Shelly Duvall. Prequel? Not if it's pure hollywood not Stephen King. Hollywood has been turning wonderful stories into **** for years.
Hollywood make me laugh...a very good and hearty belly laugh! A "prequel," a "sequel," and/or a "remake." They call themselves talented...I beg to differ. I save my hard earned money and, when I choose to spend it, I'll do so w/friends, checking out a museum, and spending QUALITY timw w/family/friends and, helping out my community; I'm tired of all the crap that goes on into these films...as if I have no brain and imagination. They "push" the envelope in the name of edginess and...oh yeah, art (OVERRATED!).
Please Hollywood, we need more soft porn and violence...of course, you're not to be blamed; after all, it's about distraction and pocketing monies...er...art and edginess and all that other stuff.
DONE W/GIVING U MY MONIES. ;)
What can I say? These days, producers and directors just can't think of anything new. All they could do is just take an old movie and do something with it or to it.
I sure miss those good old days where producers and directors could come up with new things. Copycats and remakes is all I see these days.
However, The Shining is sure a chill and one hell of a scare!!!! Great imagination and guts.
There are times when I even tried to tell a scary story and it creeps me out of my own skin. I just don't know how Stephen King does it.
