NEVER LET ME GO Director Mark Romanek to Helm THE SHINING Prequel?

Variety writes that Mark Romanek (Never Let Me Go) is in negotiations to helm Warner Bros. upcoming prequel to THE SHINING, titled OVERLOOK HOTEL. THE WALKING DEAD's Glenn Mazzara has been tapped as scribe.

Read the original news here.

OVERLOOK HOTEL will center on the original owner of the Rocky Mountain hotel, which was featured in Stephen King's novel and the Jack Nicholson-led 1980 film adaptation by Stanley Kubrick. The owner, Bob T. Watson, is "a robber baron at the turn of the 20th century" who "scaled the remote peaks of the Colorado Rockies to build the grandest resort in America, and a place he and his family would also call home".

The script will be based on a prologue King wrote before the final version of THE SHINING was published in 1977. Last year, King published a sequel to THE SHINING called DR. SLEEP.

Romanek is working on the new TV series The Whispers and the film adaptation of Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol. Among his other directing credits are Never Let Me Go and One Hour Photo.
