Warner Bros. has unlocked the doors to The Overlook Hotel and let loose the first trailer for Doctor Sleep. The adaptation of Stephen King’s 2013 novel serves as a direct sequel to The Shining. Gerald’s Game director Mike Flanagan helms the picture.
Ewan McGregor stars as Danny Torrance, who’s followed his father’s footsteps into alcoholism. Things change when the hauntings persist and he stumbles upon a young, magical tween who must evade a circus of psychic vampires. Yep.
As previously reported, McGregor tops a stellar cast that also includes Rebecca Ferguson, Zahn McClarnon, Kyliegh Curran, Carl Lumbly, Alex Essoe, Jacob Tremblay, and Bruce Greenwood. And yes, the film will acknowledge Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining.
Doctor Sleep hits theaters on November 8th. Watch the trailer below.
