Ewan McGregor will star as grown-up Danny Torrance in the film version of Doctor Sleep, Stephen King’s sequel to The Shining, according to Variety.

The book picks up with Torrance in middle age, still haunted by demons both real and internal. He works as a hospice nurse, using his psychic powers to ease the transition for dying patients, but he’s also fighting for sobriety, the same addiction that made his dad so vulnerable to the evil forces lingering around the Overlook Hotel decades before.

 

The movie is being directed by Hush and Oculus filmmaker Mike Flanagan, whose previous thriller Gerald’s Game was also an adaptation of a King novel.

 

The question is how much the film will follow King’s novel, and how much it will be pulled by Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 film version of The Shining.

 

 

Along the way, Torrance finds himself protecting a young girl named Abra, who has an even more potent version of “the shine.”
