The Shining Sequel
Posted 26 November 2009 - 07:24 PM
STEPHEN KING has thrilled horror fans by announcing he has started work on a sequel to his most famous book - THE SHINING.
The 1977 novel was adapted for the big screen three years later and the film, directed by Stanley Kubrick and starring Jack Nicholson, became a cult classic.
King confirmed he is writing a follow-up during an appearance in Toronto, Canada this week (beg23Nov09) and revealed the story will be set 40 years later and focus on the lead character Jack Torrance's son Danny.
The sequel is tentatively titled Doctor Sleep.
But King admits he's nervous about writing a follow-up to his best known story, joking to the crowd, "Maybe if I keep talking about it I won't have to write it."

Has anyone else been to "The Stanley" in Colorado the inspiration for the tale?
