I'm not saying I would put a stop to the project, because I'm sort of a nice guy. 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.
Makes sense. King has his own sequel to The Shining, Doctor Sleep, that's being released this fall that already has its own fan skepticism. It's also unknown as to whether where Mazzara's prequel would take place. Obviously, it would most likely be at the Overlook Hotel, but a story surrounding the Grady family would be unnecessary. Are you ready for a prequel and a sequel to The Shining?
