A sequel to The Shining?

It looks like that just might be the case. There's no director yet, but Akiva Goldsman has signed on to adapt Doctor Sleep (the sequel Stephen King wrote for The Shining). I always keep my fingers crossed for an upcoming sequel, but I never get my hopes up too high. Rarely does this sort of thing pan out. I don't think the film version of The Shining needs a sequel and I don't understand why movie makers can't just leave the classics alone. Oh wait, money. That's why. My fault. Carry on.
