'The Shining' Prequel, 'Point Break' Remake, Both Still Happening
And now there are some willing participants to help realize these bad ideas.
Firstly, on the Point Break front, that old remake rumor we nearly forgot about is now back to hunt us down, even if it also sort of loves us like a brother. After years of stagnation, now the film has a director, with Ericson Core reportedly taking on the undesirable task. He doesn't have a lot of experience in directing, as his only feature directing credit to date is the 2006 Mark Wahlberg football drama Invincible. On the other hand, he was also the cinematographer on the original The Fast and the Furious, so he's basically already done this.
Meanwhile, that The Shining prequel Warner Bros. hired the Shutter Island writer to pen now has a new writer in Glen Mazzara, Deadline reports. Mazzara has spent his career as a television writer, working on that Crash show and Nash Bridges before finding himself most recently running The Walking Dead. So who better to write a prequel to some horrific shit happening to people acting utterly irrational?
