Shining: the sequel?
Do, 26.11.2009, Constantin Xenakis
In Toronto for a reading moderated by David Cronenberg, Stephen King has told fans he has been thinking about writing a sequel to «The Shining», which Stanley Kubrick turned into a movie in 1980.
Nevertheless, at a reading to promote his latest book, «Under the Dome», the master of horror told fans the sequel would concentrate on Danny Torrance, now about 40 and working in a New York hospice for terminal patients, using his powers to communicate with ghosts to help ease dying patients. The work-in-progress title is «Doctor Sleep».
King added a caveat, stressing it's only talk at the moment: «Maybe if I keep talking about it I won't have to write it.»
It should also be noted that King considered «The Shining» by Stanley Kubrick the worst adaptation of one of his books. As usual, Kubrick brings controversy about.
