Fans of director Stanley Kubrick's 1980 adaptation of the Stephen King novel "The Shining" will be interested to hear that Warner Bros. is "exploring the possibility of a prequel" to the thriller according to a report from The Los Angeles Times.
In the original film, a family heads to an isolated hotel for the winter where an evil and spiritual presence influences the father into violence, while his psychic son sees horrific forebodings from the past and of the future.
Writer/producer Laeta Kalogridis ("Shutter Island," "Avatar") and her partners Bradley Fischer and James Vanderbilt would produce the prequel were it to move forward.
A spokesperson from the studio did remind the Times that the project is "in a very early stage and not even formally in development," however.
We will keep you updated as details on the project emerge.
