HOLLYWOOD – The first image from Mark Romanek’s Shining prequel starring Loki star Tom Hiddleston has hit the internets and caused a stir.
Tentatively entitled Delbert: A Shining Story, the film starring Tom Hiddleston will tell the backstory to the most infamous butler in movie history.
Speaking EXCLUSIVELY to the Studio Exec, the Loki star explained the idea behind the prequel to Stanley Kubrick’s famous masterpiece:
I don’t know about you but when I first saw The Shining I was absolutely fascinated by Philip Stone’s amazing performance as Delbert Grady. We had already heard about the butler before we met him and we knew the story of the murders he had committed but then we meet this mild mannered Englishman, so in contrast to Wolfman Jack Nicholson’s Jack Torrance. Chilling indeed. With the new film, we will go back and find out how Delbert Grady became the butler at the Overlook Hotel.
I know it is. We see Delbert coming over from England after the war and getting a series of jobs in hotels up and down the country. He meets and falls in love with chamber maid, Doris and Delbert and Doris marry and both find work at the newly built – on an Indian burial ground – Overlook Hotel. Here Doris gives birth to two beautiful twin girls. This is the happy times for the family but when one of the girls fails to use an apostrophe correctly Delbert becomes infuriated and ‘corrects’ them.
You mean he kills them because of punctuation. Thats stupid.
What did you say?
You said ‘thats stupid’ and you should have said ‘that’s stupid.’
How can you tell I didnt use an apostrophe just by listening?
I know your site of old.- You must be corrected!
