Adult Danny Torrance Cast in Stephen King's DOCTOR SLEEP

  • Ewan McGregor

McGregor is going to be taking on the role of Torrance in the movie, and Stephen King has apparently given the casting his blessing.

While the idea of a "Shining" sequel may worry horror fans, the source material coming from King himself and the involvement of director Mike Flanagan bode well for the final product. Flanagan's frequent collaborative partner Trevor Macy will produce alongside Vertigo Entertainment's Jon Berg.

Warner Bros. had been developing this film, as well as "The Shining" prequel "Overlook Hotel", for years, but the studio struggled to secure a budget for either film.

But with It earning more than $700,000 worldwide for New Line a year ago, Doctor Sleep is now being fast-tracked into pre-production. His worsened drinking problem equally suppresses his pain and his previously titular "shining" ability. As an employee of a hospice for the dying, Danny tries to use his powers for good, eventually establishing a connection with a young girl who possesses the same gift. They've found that their powers grow if they inhale the "steam" that comes off others with the power to shine, when they are suffering painful deaths.


Stanley Kubrick directed the original adaptation of "The Shining", starring Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall.

Warner Bros is pressing ahead with a movie take on The Shining sequel novel, and it's just recruited Ewan McGregor to star.

He can next be seen playing Christopher Robin's eponymous character in the fantasy comedy-drama film of the same name scheduled to be released on August 3, 2018. He is repped by UTA.
