Ewan McGregor to star in The Shining sequel Doctor Sleep

Ewan McGregor is to star in Doctor Sleep, Stephen King's sequel to The Shining. 

McGregor will play Danny Torrance, who appears as a child in The Shining. In Doctor Sleep, which was published in 2013, Torrance is an adult, but remains psychologically traumatised by the events of The Shining

Torrance has a lingering rage and an alcohol problem that dulls his pain as well as his supernatural shining powers, but he finds they return when he opts to go sober and uses his gifts to help those dying at a local hospice.

Hush and Ouija: Origin Of Evil director Mike Flanagan will take charge of this movie, both adapting the book and directing. 

Doctor Sleep is currently due to released into cinemas in January 2020.
