Alfonso Cuaron offered The Shining prequel
Warner Bros has reportedly offered Gravity helmer Alfonso Cuaron the chance to direct The Overlook Hotel...
Given what Gravity did for Warner Bros' bottom line over the past year, and given how acclaimed the film was, it's perhaps unsurprising that it wants to keep director Alfonso Cuaron close to the studio. Earlier in the week, it was reported that he was in negotiations to direct the first Harry Potter spin-off, Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them. Now, SchmoesKnow is reporting that the studio has offered him the prequel to The Shining.
Entitled The Overlook Hotel, The Shining prequel is currently in the hands of writer Glen Mazzara (one-time showrunner of The Walking Dead), and whilst it's unclear if Cuaron will accept the job, the site seems sure he's been offered it.
Given that Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them already has a locked release date in November 2016, we'd imagine that's the priority project. We'll keep you posted on both.
