Missed a chance at tolerableness not having Capaldi as Macgregor. Maybe there'll be a fan edit.

So Mike Flanagan is directing a sequel to The Shining, preliminarily starring Ewan McGregor as Danny Torrance returning to The Overlook, based on King's Dr Sleep novel.

Are people angry at the mere premise and all ready to declare `Shit 4 Cuntz' or pleasantly looking forward to it?

Christ , this means McGregor will be failing yet again to do a convincing American accent, doesn't it? Why do film-makers insist on hiring him to play American characters?

I can only hope that, after their terrifying ordeal at the Overlook Hotel, Wendy and Danny emigrated to a peaceful little town in Perth and Kinross, thereby explaining adult Danny's lilting Scottish brogue. Voila, problem solved.

It must be a horribly incestuous business where deals are made between productions companies, studios and managers etc just depending on who knows who, so certain actors get roped in to being attached to films which clearly they shouldn't be starring in. I'm thinking of Coppola being stuck with Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder for Dracula here for example.

That must be what happens, yes. To use the example you cite, I just can't imagine Coppola saying to his associates, "You know who'd be perfect for the role of haunted 19th century Englishman Jonathan Harker? Keanu Reeves!"

Thankfully Keanu aced it and it was a triumph but some films arent that fortunate.

I picked up these 2 great, original mid 70's film festival posters at the car boot yesterday - £5 each!

I just hope they don't try to imply that this is a sequel to Stanley Kubrick's The Shining. At best it's a sequel to the terrible nineties TV movie.

Well, it’s based on King’s sequel novel, so it doesn’t have to be either. So really the film has two options, either directly reference the look and unique elements of Kubrick’s film (I wouldn’t be surprised if they did, it’s the kind of half-arsed bullshit you expect Hollywood to pull) or you go all out and do your own thing. Because who remembers or cares about the 90s version?

That said, didn’t King not like the film? He’d likely have the inclination - and the power - to demand any adaptation of Dr. Sleep ignore Kubrick’s version.

I think they'll try to have their cake and eat it. They know that "The Shining" means the Jack Nicholson film for at least 90 per cent of people.

In King's book the hotel explodes at the end. I bet they'll skirt around this and anything else that didn't happen in the Kubrick film. Like the living hedge animals/Dick Hallorann surviving. The only alternative is to include new "flashback" scenes and just go for an all-out reboot.

This'll be shit I reckon.

The thing is, Dr. Sleep the novel is nothing like The Shining in any way, shape or form, so unless they're completely changing the plot, the antagonists and the supporting characters, the movie is never going to resemble 'The Shining 2'.  It might still be shit, but if they stick to the source material it'll be weird shit about astral projection and a teenage girl battling a travelling gang of white-trash psychic vampires.

It might be the year the Vortex was created. Been a while, so I can't remember if it was explicitly mentioned.
