The Shining prequel in the works

Warner Bros are reportedly planning a prequel to the classic 1980 horror film The Shining, starring Jack Nicholson.

The film, based on a book by Stephen King of the same name, tells the story of writer Jack Torrence, who loses his grasp on reality while working as an off-season caretaker in a countryside hotel.

Nicholson gave one of his most electrifying performances in the movie, which featured the iconic line: 'Here's Johnny!'

It's not yet known what the plot will be for the film, but it seems like horror prequels are all the rage right now. Prequels for The Thing and The Exorcist are both on their way.
