Rebecca Ferguson is the next name to be thrown into the Stephen King ring for “Doctor Sleep”, a sequel to the classic “The Shining”.
Ewan McGregor has already signed on for the role of Danny Torrance, and Ferguson is in talks with Warner Bros’ to join the film.
“Doctor Sleep” follows a now-adult Danny Torrance (McGregor) as he battles alcoholism and the trauma of what happened to him as a child in that Colorado hotel in The Shining. Along the way, he’s presented with an opportunity to use the shining power he discovered in the first book in a way that can help a young girl.
“Gerald’s Game” director Mike Flanagan will helm the pic.
