'The Shining' Prequel 'The Overlook Hotel' Brings on Director Mark Romanek

18 July 2014 1:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Mark Romanek has entered negotiations to direct The Shining prequel The Overlook Hotel for Warner Bros. We reported in May that Gravity director Alfonso Cuar&#243n was the studio's top choice to direct The Overlook Hotel, but it seems a deal was never reached.

The Overlook Hotel is based on the original prologue that Stephen King wrote for The Shining novel, which was cut before the book was published in 1977. The prologue tells the origin story of The Overlook Hotel and its first owner, Bob T. Watson, a "robber baron" at the start of the 20th Century who set out to build the greatest resort in America, nestled within the Colorado Rockies, where he and his family also lived.

We reported in April that Glen Mazzara, a former showrunner on AMC's The Walking Dead, signed on to write the screenplay. The writer recently turned in his first draft to producers Brad Fischer, »

18 July 2014 10:32 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Mark Romanek is set to direct Overlook Hotel, a prequel to Stanley Kubrick's The Shining which 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. amz asin="B00A6CCF0K" size="small"The Shining was obviously based on the novel by Stephen King, which starred Jack Nicholson as Jack Torrance, caretaker of the Overlook Hotel for the winter. His son, Danny (Danny Lloyd) had psychic powers and when brought together with the evil and spiritual presence at the hotel Jack turned to violence while Danny continued to see horrific forebodings from the past and future of the hotel. King has since written a sequel, »

'The Shining' Prequel Eyes 'Gravity' Director Alfonso Cuaron

22 May 2014 8:48 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Gravity director Alfonso Cuar&#243n continues to be in high demand at Warner Bros. Just days after he entered talks to direct the Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the filmmaker has emerged as the studio's top choice to make The Shining prequel The Overlook Hotel.

Schmoes Know reports that the "ball is in Alfonso's court" for the project, but it isn't yet known if he plans on accepting their offer.

Back in April 2013, we reported that Glen Mazzara, the former showrunner of AMC's The Walking Dead, will be writing the script, which is set years before Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) moved into the hotel in The Shining. Schmoes Know reports that a script has just been turned in, although it isn't known how well-received it was by the studio. Laeta Kalogridis, James Vanderbilt and Brad Fisher are set to produce.

No production schedule has been set for The Overlook Hotel, »

Shirley Temple v Justin Bieber? It's just not a fair comparison | Emma Brockes

12 February 2014 8:09 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Constant media hounding has ended The Good Ship Lollipop version of child stars. I love Temple, but it's a different world now

The time honored question "who had it harder?" can be applied to almost any scenario: oldest child or youngest? The leaver or the left behind? Generation X or Millennials? And this week, needs must, Justin Bieber or Shirley Temple?

Much of the coverage of Temple's death in the last few days has focused on her decision to retire from acting at the age of 22 and become something else, avoiding the fate of the child star in adulthood, of which there are several raging examples currently at large.

The comparisons are a little unfair. Arguably, the pressures on stars were lighter in the 1930s, when the studio system protected its assets with Stalinist zeal – protection in this case meaning exploiting them so thoroughly, there was nothing left for outside »

Strange Interpretation: Why ‘The Shining’ is Subliminal Genius, Not Cryptic Confession

26 January 2014 4:51 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

There is no other filmmaker who has attracted as much wild speculation and feverish discussion as the late, great Stanley Kubrick. Iconic, unique, celebrated, and the subject of wholesale apocryphal revisionism, the man credited with creating a masterpiece in every major genre is revered no longer so much as a director but as the posthumous leader of a movement. Kubrick is a cult. It speaks volumes of his enigmatic ventures that despite being the creator of the marvelously nebulous 2001, the film in his curriculum vitae which has left the most searing mark and the most varying schools of interpretation is his treatment of a Stephen King horror story. Films have been made, thousands of hours have been spent pouring over every detail, and lives have been changed by the pursuit of a holy grail within his subtext. Even today, 34 years after its release, The Shining debate rages on.

It’s not hard to see why. »

The Top 10 One-Hit-Film Wonders

2 January 2014 10:50 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Every once in a while, an actor will come on the scene with impact, impressing everyone with a powerhouse debut performance. But sometimes a great freshmen performance fails to lead to a good follow up, and the person who made the impressive debut starts to fade from the scene. It’s always sad when such potential is unmet. Here are 10 actors who started with a bang but faded with a whimper.

Heather Donahue (The Blair Witch Project-1999) She came on the scene in a big way, starring in the low-budget hit film that became such a sensation and started the ‘hand-held-camera’ style of film making (Used in Paranormal Activity, Cloverfield and others). She seemed poised to be the new Jamie Lee Curtis, the horror film “it girl”. She got a lot of offers to do other horror films but turned them down, in order to prevent type casting. Since then, »
