Dr Sleep - The Shining Sequel
Although this story isn't strictly movie news it does have a tenuous link to Stanley Kubrick's horror masterpiece The Shining.

It would appear that Stephen King has started work on a sequel to his novel The Shining entitled Dr Sleep. And you'll never guess what it's about.

Vampires. Yes, you read that right, Vampires. Well it would, wouldn't it.

Here's what the release says on King's own website

"It's now official--Stephen is working on Dr. Sleep, the sequel to The Shining. This weekend Steve read an excerpt from this at his appearance at George Mason University. They have given us permission to post their taping of the event here on Steve's site which we will do as soon as we receive the file. Dr. Sleep's plot includes a traveling group of vampires called The Tribe which is part of the passage he read from"

Excited at this news? Do you think this novel be made into a film? Vampires?
