Warner Brothers is making a film adaptation of Stephen King's sequel to The Shining entitled Doctor Sleep which will star Ewan McGregor.

The movie will be directed by Hush and Oculus filmmaker Mike Flanagan, whose previous thriller Gerald's Game was also an adaptation of a King novel. Flanagan's producing partner, Trevor Macy, will produce along with Vertigo Entertainment's Jon Berg. Following the success of New Line's "It", every studio with any sort of King IP under its roof has fast-tracked each property into pre-production. His worsened drinking problem equally suppresses his pain and his previously titular "shining" ability.

Ewan McGregor will be putting on his trauma-survivor hat for the upcoming Shining sequel, Doctor Sleep. Torrence starts using his gift to communicate with the dying at a local hospice center, and his story takes a turn after he meets a young girl who also has "shining" powers.


Torrance befriends a woman with similar "shining" powers, but the two quickly discover that they are being hunted by a group of individuals who want to kill them to enhance their own supernatural capabilties. Now, however, it is thought to be one of the great horror classics and has a built-in fan base ready for a sequel.

This marks the second time that McGregor will step into the role of an adult version of a literary character, with the arrival of Disney's Christopher Robin set to happen later this year.
