E.W. writer Kristen Baldwin posted this about the possibility of Stephen King writing a sequel to The Shining:.
King is quoted thusly from an email, “It’s a great idea, and I just can’t seem to get down to it. . . People shouldn’t hold their breath. I know it would be cool, though. I want to write it just for the title, Dr. Sleep. I even told them [at the book signing], ‘It will probably never happen.’”.
Baldwin notes, Still, King — whose most recent novel is this month’s Under the Dome — can’t quite shut the door on the Shining sequel, adding, “But ‘probably’ isn’t ‘positively,’ so maybe.”
