"Gerald's Game" Helmer Mike Flanagan to Direct "The Shining" Sequel "Doctor Sleep"
Jan 28, 2018, 00:25
Despite some changes, the film and book are close enough in content that the film version of Doctor Sleep will likely be able to toe the line between the two, making it a true sequel to both the book and the movie. This must be a triumphant moment for Flanagan, who stated late past year that Doctor Sleepwas one of his dream Stephen King adaptations, saying, "Who wouldn't want to venture back into the world of Danny Torrance?". Trevor Macy will co-produce the film along with Jon Berg of Vertigo Entertainment.
The novel catches readers up with Danny Torrance, who was just a young child in The Shining but is now in his forties with struggles of his own. But the main story of the novel can be told without dwelling on Danny's past. 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.
'Doctor Sleep' will revisit Danny Torrance as an adult. Those powers return when he embraces sobriety and uses his gift to help the dying at a hospice. The scary group has discovered that their powers are enhanced when inhaling the "steam" that emanates from those with the shining power, especially when they suffer painful deaths. Some other things happen that have direct connections to the occurrences at the Hotel in the original movie. That book was adapted into the classic Warner Bros 1980 film, directed by Stanley Kubrick.
The Wrap reports that Flanagan has been tapped by Warner Bros.to helm Doctor Sleep, and will also rewrite the script that was originally turned in by I Am Legend writer Akiva Goldsman, who will still serve as an executive producer on the project. On the Netflix side of things, Flanagan is now working with Macy on a production of "The Haunting of Hill House". His horror credits include movies like Oculus and Ouija: Origin of Evil.
It seems like Flanagan is ready and excited to be involved in another King adaptation.
