Deadline is reporting that Bruce Greenwood has joined the cast of the adaptation of the Stephen King novel “Doctor Sleep,” Warner Bros. Pictures’ sequel to the 1980 Stanley Kubrick film “The Shining.” The film, which will also star Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson, Zahn McClarnon, Carl Lumbly, Alex Essoe and Kyliegh Curran, will be directed by Mike Flanagan (Gerald's Game, Oculus) from a script he rewrote from an initial draft by Akiva Goldsman. The book follows “[Danny] Torrance [who] carries the trauma of the Overlook Hotel into adulthood. He’s become a reflection of his murderous father, with lingering rage and a drinking problem that dulls his pain as well as his “shining” powers. Those powers return when he embraces sobriety and uses his gift to help the dying at a hospice. He establishes a psychic connection with a young girl who shares his extreme abilities, and who is being targeted by a group with similar abilities. They’ve found that their powers grow if they inhale the “steam” that comes off others with the power to shine, when they are suffering painful deaths.” “The description of Greenwood’s character is being kept under wraps.” Flanagan’s Intrepid Pictures partner Trevor Macy and Vertigo Entertainment's Jon Berg will be producing the project, while Goldsman will executive produce. “Doctor Sleep” is set for a release on January 24th, 2020.
