Ewan McGregor stars as an adult Danny Torrance in Doctor Sleep, the upcoming sequel of The Shining.
The movie will be based on both Stephen King’s 2013 original novel AND Stanley Kubrick's iconic 1980 film adaptation.
"Still irrevocably scarred by the trauma he endured as a child at the Overlook, Dan Torrance has fought to find some semblance of peace. But that peace is shattered when he encounters Abra, a courageous teenager with her own powerful extrasensory gift, known as the 'shine.' Instinctively recognizing that Dan shares her power, Abra has sought him out, desperate for his help against the merciless Rose the Hat and her followers, The True Knot, who feed off the shine of innocents in their quest for immortality. Forming an unlikely alliance, Dan and Abra engage in a brutal life-or-death battle with Rose. Abra's innocence and fearless embrace of her shine compel Dan to call upon his own powers as never before—at once facing his fears and reawakening the ghosts of the past."
Doctor Sleep is directed by Mike Flanagan, who also wrote and directed The Haunting of Hill House, Gerald's Game, Hush, and Oculus.
The movie hits theaters November 8th.
