Ewan McGregor skal spille den voksne udgave af Danny Torrance i Doctor Sleep, efterfølgeren til Stephen Kings The Shining. Det er endnu uvist om filmen Doctor Sleep bliver en direkte efterfølger til Stanley Kubricks horrormesterværk, eller om det bliver stand alone.
Doctor Sleep bliver instrueret af Mike Flanagan, der også stod bag Netflixs Gerald's Game. Warner Bros. planlægger at udgive filmen i biograferne den 24. januar 2020.
Published 36 years after The Shining, Doctor Sleep follows an adult Danny Torrance from the original novel. Haunted by the inhabitants of the Overlook Hotel, where he spent one horrific childhood year, Dan has been drifting for decades, desperate to shed his father’s legacy of despair, alcoholism, and violence. Finally, he settles in a New Hampshire town, an AA community that sustains him, and a job at a nursing home where his remnant shining power provides the crucial final comfort to the dying. Aided by a prescient cat, he becomes “Doctor Sleep.” There Dan meets Abra Stone, and it is her spectacular gift, the brightest shining ever seen, that reignites Dan’s own demons and summons him to a battle for Abra’s soul and survival.
