Master of horror Stephen King wasnt impressed with Stanley Kubricks original adaption of his novel especially the altered ending and he isnt too happy about the idea of The Overlook Hotel a prequel to his novel. Glen Mazzara former Walking Dead writer has already been hired by Warner Bros. to write a screenplay for the prequel. Others currently assigned to the project include producers Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island) Bradley Fischer (Black Swan Shutter Island) and James Vanderbilt (Zodiac The Amazing SpiderMan). But King added some uncertainty about whether they can put whatever they come up with into production. »
The first details regarding the prequel to The Shining have emerged online. At the moment there is not indication of story details but we now know the project is operating under the official title The Overlook Hotel. Glen Mazzara, who ran AMC’s The Walking Dead is in talks to write it. Based on a Stephen King novel the 1980, Stanley Kubrick-directed film is enjoying some form of renaissance at the moment with the film’s recent re-lease as well as a fan-theory driven film called Room 237. There is also a Stephen King sequel set to arrive later this year called Doctor Sleep.
There has been no speculation as to who might direct or star but the film is being developed at Warner Bros and will be produced by Mythology Entertainment’s Bradley Fischer, James Vanderbilt and Laeta Kalogridis. Whilst King wasn’t exactly crazy about the film, there »
The entertainment world is ripe with speculation as to whether or not Walking Dead’s Glen Mazzara will write the prequel to the horror classic The Shining. From zombies to ghosts, if Mazzara does pen the prequel can he please both fans and Stephen King?
Executive producer and former showrunner for AMC’s monster hit The Walking Dead is in talks (according to Deadline) to write the much buzzed about prequel for The Shining entitled The Overlook Hotel. Warner Bros. is developing the film which is being produced by Bradley Fischer, James Vanderbilt and Laeta Kalogridis at Mythology Entertainment.
The first movie starring a very scary Jack Nicholson was based on the novel The Shining written by prolific author Stephen King. In 1980 Stanley Kubrick brought the book to the screen, basing it more on his vision than King’s written page. Unfortunately for Kubrick, King did not care for Kubrick »

First it was the announcement of a sequel to The Shining Doctor Sleep making noise online. Then along came Room 237 an interesting documentary on the film. Now were eying a prequel to this classic tale appropriately titled The Overlook Hotel. According to Deadline former Walking Dead showrunner Glen Mazzara is currently in talks to write a brand new prequel to The Shining aptly titled The Overlook Hotel. Warner Bros. is developing the film which will be produced by Mythology Entertainments Bradley Fischer James Vanderbilt and Laeta Kalogridis. »
The former Walking Dead showrunner is being lined up to write The Overlook Hotel for Warner Bros, reports Deadline.
Little is known about the planned prequel to the Stanley Kubrick classic, but it is presumed that it will explore the dark past of the haunted hotel.
Stephen King is currently working on a sequel to his original novel. The writer has always been critical of Kubrick's adaptation.
Glen Mazzara, who ran The Walking Dead the past two seasons, has landed his new gig. He’ll be writing The Overlook Hotel, a prequel to Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, which was loosely based on the Stephen King novel of the same name.
This will undoubtedly piss off many faithful fans of Stephen King and Stanley Kubrick (I can hear screams of “Is nothing sacred?” echoing throughout the interwebs now). For me, I just think it’s unnecessary. But say what you want about the project, Glen Mazzara is a talented writer who stabilized the ship after Frank Darabont departed AMC’s hit show.

Glen Mazzara has spent the last couple years embedded in the world of zombies, until recently serving as the showrunner on the hit AMC television series The Walking Dead, but now he's getting ready to move over to a completely different horror subgenre: haunted hotels. Deadline has learned that Mazzara has signed a deal to script The Overlook Hotel, a prequel to Stanley Kubrick's classic The Shining, which was in turn based on the Stephen King novel of the same name. We first learned about the project last July, and it's set up over at Warner Bros., though we still have no idea how or when the story will be structured or set. Laeta Kalogridis (who wrote Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island), James Vanderbilt (who scripted Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man) and Bradley Fischer (who produced Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan and David Fincher's Zodiac), will be »
Former "The Walking Dead" show runner Glen Mazzara is bringing audiences back to the world of "The Shining" some thirty years after Jack Torrance and his family first checked in. Mazzara is in talks with Warner Bros. to write "The Overlook Hotel," the previously-announced prequel to the Stanley Kubrick-directed classic "The Shining." "Overlook" will explore the history of the haunted hotel before Jack (played by Jack Nicholson in the 1980 film) took over as the ill-fated winter caretaker, according to Deadline. The prequel will be produced by Mythology Entertainment’s Bradley Fischer, James Vanderbilt ("Zodiac") and Laeta Kalogridis. "The Shining" was based on the hit Stephen »

Mazzara exited as showrunner on AMC’s “Walking Dead” late last year after clashing with the network. He signed an overall deal with Fox TV Studios last month to develop cable projects under his new 44 Strong Prods. banner.
Mazzara logged six seasons on FX skein “The Shield,” which was produced by the studio.
King originally wrote a prologue titled “Before the Play” that chronicled earlier events in the Overlook’s history in which a young Torrance is abused by his father. »

We first reported on this project back in July, when Warner Bros. was in the very early stages of developing a prequel, set before Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) and his family moved into the forboding hotel. No story details have been given at this point, but there are elements of Stephen King's original novel that delved into the history of The Overbrook, which weren't used in director Stanley Kubrick's 1980 classic.
Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island), James Vanderbilt (The Amazing Spider-Man 2), and Brad Fischer (Black Swan) are producing through their Mythology Entertainment company. No production schedule has been given at this time.
Despite the fact that Stephen King's novel sequel to The Shining, titled Doctor Sleep, will hit shelves this September, last summer we learned that Warner Bros. was exploring the possibility of a prequel film to the classic Stanley Kubrick horror flick. Now there's been some progress on the development as Deadline reports former "The Walking Dead" showrunner Glen Mazzara is currently in talks to write the film currently titled The Overlook Hotel. Honestly, it seems like a bit cheap in the wake of the pseudo Psycho prequel series "Bates Motel" (though the series is set in present day), but we're not sure of the story just yet. When news surfaced of the project, Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island) had been tapped to produce, along with her partners Bradley Fischer and James Vanderbilt, and the film would focus on the events that happen before Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) arrive at the Overlook Hotel. »

With Stephen King's own Doctor Sleep and Room 237 getting all The Shining related love lately, we're happy to say that even more strangeness is headed our way in prequel form. Are you ready to revisit The Overlook Hotel?
Deadline is reporting that Glen Mazzara, who ran AMC’s smash hit series "The Walking Dead," will now focus on ghosts. He’s in talks to write The Overlook Hotel, a prequel to the Stanley Kubrick-directed The Shining, based on the Stephen King novel. The film is being developed at Warner Bros. to be produced by Mythology Entertainment’s Bradley Fischer, James Vanderbilt, and Laeta Kalogridis.
There's definitely a prequel to be told here what with such rich characters as Lloyd the bartender and of course the infamous Delbert Grady and his spooky twins. Yep, today is a good day.

When we talked to Glen Mazzara earlier this year, he said that there were a number of genre projects he was considering after leaving The Walking Dead. We recently reported that he signed a deal with Fox TV to develop a cable series and now it’s being reported that he could be writing a prequel to The Shining for Warner Bros.
According to Deadline, Mazzara is currently in talks to write The Overlook Hotel, a prequel to Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining movie, as opposed to Stephen King’s novel. This isn’t a done deal yet, but we’ll report as soon as it is official. The project is being developed at Warner Bros. and will be produced by Bradley Fischer, James Vanderbilt and Laeta Kalogridis at Mythology Entertainment, a newer production company that was involved with White House Down.
This project was first mentioned last July, but »

In case the news yesterday that the extreme sports remake of "Point Break" was going ahead didn't remind you, nothing is sacred in Hollywood. And that means even Stanley Kubrick's iconic horror masterpiece "The Shining" needs to be franchised, because it can. Warner Bros. has no problem making the movie the centerpiece of whatever they're planning, and right now that means: prequel! The news of this plan first cropped up last summer and we hoped like many ideas in Hollywood, it would just end up in development hell, forever being tossed around by idealistic young executives looking to get ahead, but never actually going anywhere. Sadly, it is moving forward as the studio has hired "The Walking Dead" showrunner/writer/producer Glen Mazzara to wield his mighty pen. It's an interesting choice, and there is something to be said for the producing talent with Laeta Kalogridis ("Avatar," "Shutter Island"), Bradley Fischer ("Black Swan, »

It appears that Stephen King’s beloved novel The Shining is all the rage at the moment. King is set to release his sequel novel Doctor Sleep later this fall and the Shining-centric documentary Room 237 recently hit theaters, but now it appears that the story is headed to the big screen once again by way of a prequel. Glen Mazzara—who previously took over for Frank Darabont as showrunner on AMC’s The Walking Dead before being forced out of the position halfway through the most recent season—has been tapped to write the screenplay for the Warner Bros. prequel film The Overlook Hotel. Hit the jump for more. Word first broke that Warner Bros. was considering a prequel to The Shining last summer, when it was reported that writer/producers Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island) and James Vanderbilt (Zodiac) were developing the film alongside producing partner Bradley Fischer (Black Swan »

Last July, it was reported that Warner Bros. had hired Shutter Island's Laeta Kalogridis to write a prequel to The Shining. However, Deadline now reports that the studio has entered talks with former The Walking Dead showrunner Glen Mazzara to write The Overlook Hotel. This will be a prequel to Stanley Kubrick's The Shining, but won't have any relation to upcoming novel Dr Sleep (a sequel to the original book) and it's thought that Stephen King won't have any involvement with this prequel. Personally, I would prefer to see a faithful adaptation of The Shining rather than a film not based on any of King's work, but what do you guys think? Sound off with your thoughts below! »
Exclusive: Glen Mazzara, who ran AMC’s smash hit series The Walking Dead for the past several seasons, will now focus on ghosts. He’s in talks to write The Overlook Hotel, a prequel to the Stanley Kubrick-directed The Shining, based on the Stephen King novel. The film is being developed at Warner Bros to be produced by Mythology Entertainment’s Bradley Fischer, James Vanderbilt and Laeta Kalogridis. While King wasn’t crazy about the Kubrick movie, there are so many iconic images in that movie, and an outsized performance by Jack Nicholson, that this will be a tough act to follow. Mazzara is an interesting choice. He succeeded Frank Darabont on The Walking Dead, and while it seemed he clashed with graphic novel creator Robert Kirkman — he was dropped as showrunner in December — I think he did a fabulous job in moving forward and giving context to what Darabont started. »
