Stephen King sounds off on 'The Shining' prequel, 'The Overlook Hotel'

Yesterday the news broke that former "The Walking Dead" showrunner Glen Mazzara was in talks to bring a prequel to The Shining entitled The Overlook Hotel to life. Today Stephen King himself sounded off on the project.

"I’m not saying I would put a stop to the project because I’m sort of a nice guy," King tells Entertainment Weekly. "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."

Sounds like he's kind of numb to the project. How couldn't he be after seeing his work bastardized time and time again.
Still, we retain some hope. Look for more on this one soon. In the interim tell us what you think in our comments section!

I'm not sure how I feel about this to be honest. On one hand it seems like it could have the potential to be really awesome but there are also so many ways that it could go wrong. King has never been a fan of what Kubrick did with 'The Shining' (and to be honest as great as Kubrick is I prefer the mini-series) so I could see why he's less than enthusiastic about it.
