Stephen King's Doctor Sleep

Postby bankska22 » Jul Thu 04, 2019 10:55 am



Ewan McGregor has been cast in the lead role of Danny Torrance in Warner Bros. adaptation of Stephen King's Doctor Sleep, which is a sequel to The Shining. I was wondering who they would cast in this role and McGregor is freakin' perfect!

The film is being directed by Mike Flanagan previously directed Oculus, Ouija, Gerald's Game and Hush, all of which were solid movies, especially Gerald's Game which was another Stephen King story.

The studio is not only developing this sequel to The Shining, they are also developing a prequel called Overlook Hotel. The films have been in development for years, but since IT was a huge hit, they are really interested in moving forward with these.

The Shining centers on Jack Torrance, his wife Wendy, and their son Danny as they live in the haunted Overlook Hotel during the winter season to take care of it. It's there that the hotel possesses Jack and he slowly becomes possessed by the hotel and nightmarishly torments his wife and son.

Doctor Sleep takes place several years after the events that took place at the Overlook Hotel. It focuses on Jack's son Danny who is now a middle-aged man. He is still traumatized by what happened at the hotel all those years ago and he throughout his life he had to deal with anger management and alcoholism issues. However, in an effort to get his life back together, he gives up drinking and settles down in a small town in New Hampshire. It is at this point in his life where his psychic abilities start to resurface and he develops a psychic link with a 12-year-old girl named Abra Stone. Turns out this girl's life is being threatened by a tribe of paranormals who suck the energy from people. They are led by a man named Rose the Hat and Danny has to save her from them.

What do you think about McGregor taking on the role of Jack's son Danny Torrance?
