A “Shining” prequel? “Walking Dead” writer commissioned to do “The Overlook Hotel”

The noise — limited to film buffs, admittedly — about the documentary “Room 237,” about Stanley Kubrick’s film of Steven King’s “The Shining” has gotten Warners interested in the idea of a new version of that story, a prequel.

Deadline says that Glen Mazarra of “The Walking Dead” will set aside zombies long enough to come up with a story to show how the grand hotel came to be haunted in the first place.
