Stephen King writes sequel to “The Shining”

By Kim Palacios

hollywoodnews.com: Horror/suspense author Stephen King recently unveiled passages from a new work, “Dr. Sleep,” the sequel to his 1977 bestseller, “The Shining.” Portions of the emerging text were read to an audience at Washington D.C.’s George Mason University. Said King, “I always wondered what happened to that kid, Danny Torrance, when he grew up.”

“The Shining” wrote Danny at around five years old. Nearly thirty-five years later, “Dr. Sleep” will rejoin him in his forties. In this new look, we will see Danny use his psychic abilities to help terminally ill patients. Conflict arises amid the arrival of “The Tribe,” psychic vampires who feed on people’s energy. The unveiled passages implied that Danny’s abilities have been further developed, though specifics were not immediately clear (those wishing to see the George Mason University reading may do so online).

There is no news yet of plans to film the sequel, though such an announcement would come as no surprise. Some thirty-three feature films and eighteen television movies have been based on Stephen King’s books, including “Stand By Me,” “Dolores Claiborne,” and “The Shawshank Redemption.”
