Doctor Sleep – Trailer – The Shining 2 by Stephen King – With Ewan McGregor . Doctor Sleep is a new 2019 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 film combines elements of the 1977 novel and its 1980 film adaptation of the same name directed by Stanley Kubrick.
Written and directed by Mike Flanagan, it stars Ewan McGregor as Dan Torrance, a man with psychic powers who struggles with alcoholism. The film also stars Rebecca Ferguson and Kyliegh Curran in her feature film debut. The cast includes Carl Lumbly, Zahn McClarnon, Emily Alyn Lind, Bruce Greenwood, Jocelin Donahue, Alex Essoe, and Cliff Curtis.
The character Danny Torrance first appeared in King’s novel The Shining as a child with psychic powers called “the shining”. The child character also appeared in Kubrick’s 1980 film. The novel Doctor Sleep and its film adaptation features Dan Torrance as an adult, played by Ewan McGregor. Flanagan said that the film Doctor Sleep is an adaptation of King’s novel but that it would also exist “in the same cinematic universe” as Kubrick’s The Shining. The director said he made an effort to reconcile the differences between The Shining novel and film.
Warner Bros. Pictures began developing a film adaptation shortly after Doctor Sleep was published. Writer-producer Akiva Goldsman wrote a script, but the studio did not secure a budget for the film until the box office success of its 2017 horror film It, also based on a novel by King.source wiki
Plot – Still irrevocably scarred by the trauma he endured as a child at the Overlook Hotel, 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 set to be released on October 31, 2019.
