The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Warner Brothers is considering making a prequel to "The Shining." The Times points out that King has been working on "Doctor Sleep," a sequel to "The Shining," featuring a grown-up Danny Torrance. The book is expected to be published in 2013.

I like the idea of a sequel, seeing how the events impacted Danny's future, (especially if it's taken from SK's book),  but I'm not really that interested in what happened before the Torrance family came in. The prequel would have to be really good... and I just don't see it happening! LOL I think it's just their way of riding on the coattails of King writing a sequel. What do you think?
