Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

AU­THOR Stephen King has re­vealed he’s writ­ten a se­quel to his chill­ing hit novel The Shin­ing.

The book, penned in 1977, was fa­mously turned into a ter­ri­fy­ing Stan­ley Kubrick hor­ror film star­ring Jack Ni­chol­son (

The movie told the story of a young boy with psy­chic abil­i­ties called Danny whose fa­ther is slowly driven mad by ghosts while holed-up in an iso­lated ho­tel.

King, 64, says his fol­low-up will fo­cus on Danny as a grown man.

He said: “My agent is talk­ing with pub­lish­ers about Dr Sleep, that’s the se­quel to The Shin­ing. I wanted to see what would hap­pen to Danny. I want him to work in a hospice as he has the shin­ing and can help peo­ple across as they die.”
