Fans of Steven King horror novels are counting the days until he publishes the sequel to one of his greatest spine chillers The Shining. The book is due to come out on September 24th, thirty five years after he published his first saga.
Although little is known about the plot, it’s clear that the long-awaited follow-up novel, Doctor Sleep, depicts Danny Torrance, the young boy who survived the bloody events of The Shining.
According to King's official website, the lead character encounters "a twelve-year-old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals."
The Shining has sold over a million copies since it was first published in 1977.
The prolific multi-award winning author is often referred to as a writing machine: he has released a novel every year since 2001.
His books are in demand by filmmakers who are ready to adapt King’s novels for the silver screen even before he finishes them. According to Hollywood Reporter, nine of his books are in development for TV or film adaptations, with more are being added nearly every month.
The biggest rumor, Hollywood Reporter claims, is that Warner Bros. is allegedly working on a prequel film to The Shining. Those who watched the movie starring Jack Nicholson and adapted for the big screen by Stanley Kubrick claimed it was the scariest film ever made. Whether King would be involved in revamping his bestselling story for the Hollywood project is unknown.
