UNDATED (CNN) -- It's been 33 years since Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall kept audiences on the edge of their seats in "The Shining." but the intrigue is far from over.

CNN has learned Warner Brothers is in the very early stages of developing a sequel to "The Shining" based on Stephen King's newly-published follow-up.

Howard Senft is a sculptor who's fascinated with the movie. Senft is such a fan of Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining" he decided to pay tribute to it down to the last detail including the psychotic father, his psychic son, and of course, the so-called "twins". He says, "It's just kind of like a fan thing....To me it's just like the best horror movie ever made."

Senft is not the only "Shining" obsessive. In fact, the movie has been getting a lot of attention lately, more than three decades after it first came out.

More than a quarter of a million people trekked through a recent exhibit on Kubrick at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The most popular room in the show was the one devoted to "The Shining".

Artist Patti Podesta designed the LACMA exhibit. She says, "This is definitely one of the typewriters that was used and this is the knife; Christiane Kubrick told me it was one of her kitchen knives that Kubrick just took from the kitchen one day saying, 'This is the right knife.'"

2013 also brought the release of a new documentary about all the theories surrounding secret meanings Kubrick may have hidden in his film.

Tim Kirk produced the film called "Room 237", named for the spooky suite in the movie's overlook hotel. He says, "All our theorists have watched the film very closely. And they've found things within the film that help support their theories."

One of those theorists is Geoffrey Cocks, a historian at Albion College in Michigan. He's convinced Kubrick put coded messages into the shining about the horrors of Nazi Germany. He says, "References to the Holocaust in particular found a place in almost all of his films and certainly I think in 'The Shining'. The typewriter stands as an object that represents the bureaucratic machinery of the 'Final Solution.'"

Whether that theory holds water, or oceans of blood, is a matter of opinion. Howard Senft, who devoted months to sculpting "The Shining" characters, says he just enjoys the movie for what it is.
