    The TV version of "The Shining" was produced by, King and was actually his answer to the Kubrik film which he famously disliked. The Kubrik film while iconic and probably more well known was not an accurate adaption of the book to film. The TV version was far more accurate. Nevertheless, as stated in the article above, "Dr. Sleep" will be a sequel to the book/TV version of the Shining if for nothing else than, Halloran being cast in DS. As the article points out, Kubrik killed Halloran off in his version (for no apparent reason IMHO).

    The idea that they would go back and remake the Kubrik film in order to make the King sequel seems a little silly and just ain't gonna happen. FWIW, I am not a fan of the Kubrik film in any way shape or form. About the only thing, Kubrik got right in my opinion was casting, Nicholson as, Jack. So, I admit to being biased. I loved the book, liked the TV version and also very much enjoyed the King sequel, "Dr. Sleep" so take that into account when reading this. So far, the casting news and all I've heard surrounding this film look very good for a faithful adaption of the original sequel novel. Can't wait to see what, Flanagan does with this. It should be a hoot, IMHO

    I know it wouldn't happen but IMO both versions of The Shining were failures and watching Flanagan's 'Hill House' and 'Gerald's Game' made me think he could be the one person to do a version that's both faithful to the novel and still a good film.

    I'm one of those who liked the miniseries version of The Shining, and I'm happy to see that Doctor Sleep will not be in honor of Kubrick's movie version.

    Same, especially with Flanagan's track record.

    So it continues on with the time-honored tradition of making SK novels into horrible movies.

    Great...
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    I am curious if they read the book given how a number of people didn't like it because it wasn't "The Shining Part 2".

    Right.

    Usually, marketing a sequel comes down to hey! did you like Movie A? well, here's Movie B!, but if I'm the marketing department for this movie, my #1 concern is expectation management, immediately clueing viewers in to the fact that this is going to be very different from The Shining.
    What does quiet sound like?

    I'm really hoping for something good. But just based on history, it seems like more often than not his novels just don't translate well to film. I remember having high hopes for movies like Cell and The Dark Tower as well. I guess we'll see.

    Although I will admit that the track record is getting slightly better recently with things like the new It remake, 1922, Gerald's Game, Mr Mercedes and 11.22.63.

    Cell wasn't that great of a book so no big surprise me there.

    I still have high hopes for the movie, and feel no reason to go into panic mode. Afterall just like the book it's based on, people are going to have strong opinions either way. I would think Mike Flanagan has earned our trust at this point

    Yep. I'm inclined to give this move the benefit of the doubt. The whole history of The Shining and subsequently Doctor Sleep is loaded with baggage (Kubrick fans vs King fans, etc, etc), so I'll let the movie speak for itself and I'll judge it for myself. Looking forward to seeing what they've done!
