With documentary Room 237 and Stephen King's novel sequel Doctor Sleep both arriving recently, The Shining has been enjoying something of a resurgence in interest (if it ever went away). Also part of that trend is a prequel to Stanley Kubrick's film version currently developing at Warner Bros., and reports are coming in this morning that the studio has just offered The Overlook Hotel to Alfonso Cuarón as his next directing gig.This comes hot on the heels of the news that Cuarón is also in talks for the Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them: a potential return to the worlds of Jk Rowling for the director of Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban. Following the triumphant Gravity, Warners are clearly keen to keep Cuarón in-house for a high-profile follow-up.Not much is yet known about the Shining prequel, aside from some of the names involved. »
