A Fucking True Sequel to ‘The Shining’

A Fucking True Sequel to ‘The Shining’

Well, fuck. Good job WB. We couldn’t have chosen a better companies logo to rip off :)

Back in 2013, Stephen King released Doctor Sleep, a sequel to The Shining (his novel, not Kubrick’s film) that continued the story of Danny Torrance, who was of course a young boy during the events of The Shining. That sequel novel now comes to the screen courtesy of Mike Flanagan (Gerald’s Game, “The Haunting of Hill House”), and the trailer has arrived.

What’s interesting here is that Flanagan has clearly not only adapted King’s Doctor Sleep, but he’s also made a sequel to Kubrick’s The Shining. The film looks to be pulling double duty in that department, with Flanagan recreating moments from Kubrick’s iconic classic and also directly using footage from his movie. In that sense, this really is The Shining 2!

Re-enter the Overlook Hotel by checking out the trailer below.

Ewan McGregor and Rebecca Ferguson lead the cast. McGregor stars as the adult version of Danny Torrance, while Ferguson plays Rose the Hat.

Carl Lumbly is playing Dick Hallorann with Alex Essoe as Wendy Torrance in the continuation of the storyline from The ShiningKyliegh Curran has been cast in the role of Abra Stone, a girl who has the gift of ‘The Shining’. Bruce Greenwood plays the role of Dr. John. Alyn Lind is Snakebite Andi, with Jocelin Donahue and Jacob Tremblay also starring.

In Doctor Sleep, still irrevocably scarred by the trauma he endured as a child at the Overlook, 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.

Trevor Macy and Jon Berg produced the film, with Roy Lee, Scott Lumpkin, Akiva Goldsman and Kevin McCormick serving as executive producers. Flanagan adapted the novel. 

Doctor Sleep hits theaters on November 8, 2019.
