The Shining Prequel Confirmed with a Title and a Writer

The first bits of info regarding Warner Bros. upcoming prequel to The Shining have just been released, with the film being given the official title “The Overlook Hotel.” Aside from the official title, the project has also been provided with a new writer via The Walking Dead’s Glen Mazzara, who has been asked to start on the first draft of the screenplay.

Right now, there’s no details about the plot yet, but given the Overlook hotel’s colourful history and some of the groundwork that’s been laid by The Shining, there should be plenty of ground for Mazzara to cover.

New about The Overlook Hotel is timely, as The Shining is currently enjoying a breath of fresh air via the film’s recent re-release, as well as the fan theory movie Room 237. The sequel, Doctor Sleep, is also slated to arrive later in the year.
