Ewan McGregor will be starring in Stephen King’s ‘Doctor Sleep’
‘Doctor Sleep’ is an upcoming 2019 American supernatural horror film based on the 2013 novel of the same name by Stephen King, which is a sequel to King’s 1977 novel The Shining.
The movie follows an adult Dan Torrance (Ewan McGregor) whose attempt to live a peaceful life is shattered when he encounters a teenager named Abra. Abra.
Danny has a powerful extrasensory gift that she needs to use to take down an evil figure known as Rose the Hat and her followers, The True Knot. It’s through their inevitable team-up that Dan is forced to confront what happened to him as a child, and embrace the powers he’s lived with for so long.
Stanley Kubrick’s version of ‘The Shining’ is an absolute classic, despite the author Stephen King’s disproval of it.
The trailer is full of throwbacks to The Shining, including an ominous “redrum” spelled out on Danny’s bedroom wall.
Doctor Sleep is set to be released in theaters globally on October 31, 2019 and in the United States and Canada on November 8, 2019.
