It was reported yesterday that former “Walking Dead” showrunner Glen Mazzara is the likely candidate to write The Overlook Hotel, a prequel to the Stanley Kubrick-directed The Shining, based on the Stephen King novel. But what does King think of this Warner Bros. project happening without his blessing?
“I’m not saying I would put a stop to the project, because I’m sort of a nice guy,” King tells EW with an obvious half-smirk. “When I was a kid, my mother said, ‘Stephen if you were a girl, you’d always be pregnant.’ I have a tendency to let people develop things. I’m always curious to see what will happen. But you know what? I would be just as happy if it didn’t happen.”
A few months ago I may have scoffed along with him, but A&E’s “Bates Motel” and NBC’s “Hannibal” have proven there is new ground to break, and I’ll break bread with anyone willing to deliver something unique. Still, it would be great if King were on board, too. Thoughts?
