The Walking Dead’s Glen Mazzara in Talks to Write The Shining Prequel


Deadline is reporting that former The Walking Dead showrunner Glen Mazzara is in talks to write The Overlook Hotel, which will serve as a prequel to Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining.

No official word about what the plot of this prequel will be, but the focus could fall on the character of Delbert Grady, played by Philip Stone in the 1980 film, who served as the caretaker of the hotel prior to Jack Nicholson’s Jack Torrance.

The project is being developed by Warner Bros. to be produced by Mythology Entertainment’s Bradley Fischer, James Vanderbilt and Laeta Kalogridis.
