    Well if we assume that he's not happy with a Kubrick property being the representation of his work in HHN that could be the case. It could also be the case that now that they've done it he may want to have it done his way and may be more inclined to have his work represented his way at HHN.

    I think the only way there's more King is they way they're doing Shining: use the adaptations as their own properties.

    We'll probably see the IT house next year when they release the second part of the remake.

    If I were universal, I'd do two houses.

    Not likely. King seems to be praising the IT remake too much to allow it to be at HHN

    You guys need to realize that King is very protective of his work. The Shining may be based (loosely) on his novel, but he does not approve of the movie. This is also the only film he has no rights control over. Yesterday's announcement features no mention of King's name, and that's not unintentional.

    Now that's not to say future King works can't show up at HHN, but The Shining coming to HHN this year is not the first domino to fall for future dreams.

    I would disagree, considering the IT reboot coming out, it could lead well for a future event.

    I would say doing a house based on a movie King strongly dislikes, when he has historically been unwilling to license any of his stuff for haunts of any type, would bode badly.

    I would imagine that the work would be more with Warner Bros and the team for the new films, and not just going to King.

    Yes, but this is my point. I don't think there will ever be any actual King houses, only houses of adaptations King doesn't own the rights to. (Regardless of which one prefers, Kubrick's Shining isn't King's Shining. It just isn't.)

    King has nothing to do with this house. It remains to be seen what he thinks of it. Just because it's happening doesn't mean he's happy with it.

    If he doesn't like it he'll just put a fictionalised version of it in a book... then set fire to it.

    I really don't mind if King doesn't like it. If I could pick only one King property for HHN it would be the Shining and I would be very disappointed if it weren't the Kubrick version.

    Maybe if Universal does it right, King might give them a chance.

    It has nothing to do with right or wrong with The Shining. He hates the movie. They can nail it and he won't care. :lol:

    Well, maybe they can take him out for a few drinks, and when the time strikes, they can hand him the pen, and drunk Steven just signed on. Boom.

    You mean King, the twenty-some-year-sober drug addict? Bzzzt.
