Canceled Shining Prequel Would've Properly Fixed King's Movie Problem

The unrealized Dick Hallorann-centric prequel to The Shining could have amended Stephen King's disappointment with Stanley Kubrick's adaptation of the novel. Stanley Kubrick's 1980 movie The Shining is regarded as a horror classic, but Stephen King himself was famously let down by the film. When it came to 2019's Doctor Sleep, writer-director Mike Flanagan bridged the two with Doctor Sleep specifically modified to be both an adaptation of King's eponymous 2013 sequel novel to The Shining, and a sequel to Kubrick's The Shining.
