    So, (for people that've read it) what are your casting choices for Danny, Abra, and Rose The Hat?

    Haven't read it. In fact, I haven't read any of King's stuff in quite a while. These days I'm more into biographies and of course Neil Gaiman.

    Intrigued, since I love the Stanley Kubrick film The Shining. I read Stephen King's original novel many years after seeing the film, and, though it was a good read, for me the film made a far deeper impression.

    I wonder if they'll stick closer to the book, or if they'll try to make it more of a sequel to the movie.

    Without Kubrick, it will be interesting to see if they do, do a sequel to the movie. The question is, can anyone mimic Kubrick? The only person I can think of that comes close is Nolan.

    It's based on the book, so they don't have to go within a thousand miles of Kubrick if they don't want to.
    Any more than anyone doing "Ozma Of Oz", or "The Tin Woodsman Of Oz", has to match up to the MGM "Wizard Of Oz".

    I know Doctor Sleep is a sequel to the *book* The Shining and *not* the Kubrick film, but I wonder if it will "quasi-sequel" the movie. Obviously, there are some big differences (e.g., Hallorann survives in the book), but wouldn't if be great if when

    They're kinda doing that.
    Alexandra Essoe looks quite a bit like Shelley Duvall.

    I knew it.
    Even though it's a sequel to the book, they're leaning right into the Kubrick movie.

    The callbacks in the trailer to Kubrick's masterpiece give me hope that they're following the route of his film, versus the inferior book.

    The Director, Mike Flannagan, also did Gerald's Game and Haunting of Hill House for Netflix. He's a good director, so I'm looking forward to it.

    I never understood the love for Kubrick's version of The Shining. He missed the entire point of the book which was ten times scarier. Not to mention the horrific and ultra-hammy acting from Nicholson and Duvall. Definitely NOT one of my favorites.

    I love Kubrick's The Shining. I love it even more than the book. And the acting by Nicholson and Duvall? Terrific.

    Definitely one of my favorites. :diacanu:

    Saw it, enjoyed it on the big screen for the first time ever. There was a pretty good turnout for it.

    My local theater keeps re-running Goonies and Princess Bride every few months, and I never think to go.
