The Shining Sequel, Doctor Sleep, Has a Stellar Cast — Get Some Shut-Eye While You Can
Audiences are heading back to the Overlook Hotel. Warner Bros. confirmed a while back that it would be adapting Stephen King's Doctor Sleep, the sequel to his hugely successful and very terrifying The Shining. Ewan McGregor stars as Danny Torrance, while Rebecca Ferguson will portray the villain, Rose the Hat.
In Doctor Sleep, Danny is still dealing with the aftermath of the events that took place at the Overlook Hotel when he was a child. Now an adult, Danny uses his psychic abilities to comfort patients at a small-town hospice. The plot really picks up, however, with the discovery of a group that preys on young people who also possess psychic powers, and who are after one girl in particular.
Mike Flanagan, who previously worked on Gerald's Game, Ouija: Origin of Evil, and Hush, is also on board as the director. So, yeah, this should be terrifying as hell. Read on to learn about all the actors officially attached to Doctor Sleep, and make sure you watch the bone-chilling first trailer.
