Well this one was a little bit unexpected. If you was wondering what happened before the events of Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, those questions might be answered in the very near future.

According to the LA Times, Warner Bros.is quietly exploring the possibility of a prequel to Stanley Kubrick’s 1980′s flick The Shining. The studio has apparently solicited the involvement of Hollywood writer-producer Laeta Kalogridis and her partners Bradley Fischer and James Vanderbilt to craft a new take as producers.

If the film were to go ahead, it is said to focus “on what happened before Jack Torrance (of course played memorably onscreen by Jack Nicholson), his wife and their psychic son arrived at the haunted retreat where Torrance soon descends into violent madness.”

At this time nothing has been made official with the project not formally in development.

While there is talk of a prequel, Stephen King is soon set to unleash a sequel to The Shining which is entitled Doctor Sleep. But at this time there is no word if his latest novel will be adapted into a feature film, although I’m sure it won’t be very long until that is announced.

Im up for a prequel ! Mebbe they can get Nicholson to play his own dad in the flick !! . . . . . or not. Great idea though. Should they start with one of the murder stories or do viginettes of a few of the murders wrapped around a current storyline ?
