I always loved the movie. Haven't read the book but I understand I should have by now...

I always felt the movie needed more, like it didn't flow properly, but allot of movies from that time had that same sort of incoherent lack of flow in some emotional rise I thought...

Please watch the movie "the theory of everything"or just some clips. Felicity Jones would make the greatest Wendy character... the whole time I watched that movie I couldn't stop thinking about a better, emotional building, scary, thrilling and epic remake. I suppose I can't say more like the book because I haven't read it but I have heard Mr. King want fully pleased with the movie or the show...

I'm not in the industry at all but I have such a strong feeling this should happen!

As far as Jack's character I could say Leonardo should play and maybe give Scorsese the wheel but I might get yelled at lol

Cheers!

Yes, but what about The Shining? ;)

It was re-made once, as a TV-miniseries/movie. The Shining (TV Mini-Series 1997) - IMDb

It's been a while since I saw this version, but I do recall liking it very much. Between this and the movie version, I don't think another version is necessary though. What will be interesting is the proposed film version of Doctor Sleep. Will it be a sequel to the Kubrick film or the novel itself, as they are both quite different beasts?

Seth MacFarlane must be a big fan of SK too :) Besides The Three Kings episode, Stewie has had a couple "Shining" moments.


and...
