Now The Shining Gets A Prequel; By The Walking Dead Glen Mazzara
Departing showrunner of The Walking Dead, Glen Mazzara, has landed himself another gig with the writing of The Shining prequel movie.
Deadline has it that Glenn Mazzara is writing "The Overlook Hotel," a prequel to the Stanley Kubrick-directed The Shining.
Mazzara reportedly left The Walking Dead due to differences with the show's creator, Robert Kirkman, and if you read about the original ending Mazzara had planned, that might just end up - pardon the pun - biting AMC in the you-know-where.
Stephen King also penned a sequel to his novel, The Shining, with Doctor Sleep, about the middle-aged Dan Torrance.
