MGM has set Alex Ross Perry to adapt and direct The Dark Half, a new adaptation of the 1989 Stephen King bestseller.

Perry plans a reinvention of a story first turned into a 1993 MGM film by the late zombie impresario George Romero.

What worries me is the line "Perry plans a reinvention of a story".

Mike Flanagan is interested in doing The Shining 3 that would focus on Abra Stone. Here is what he todl Den Of Geek:

“Absolutely. I would love it. And when I met Stephen King, I asked him, ‘Is there more? Do you have anything else for Abra Stone? Because my God, she’s so great.’ And he left it open. He said that he hadn’t thought about it before, but it was people asking questions like that that made him write Doctor Sleep. He started to really think about Dan.”

What do you think? Is it something you want to see happening?
