Doctor Sleep is coming to haunt you. It’s the sequel to Stephen King’s “The Shining.” It’s heading to theaters 39 years after Jack Nicholson scared the daylights out of everybody by saying “Here’s Johnny!”
In the sequel, an adult Danny takes up his father’s legacy of anger and alcoholism. His psychic abilities, long suppressed by his drinking, re-emerge (when he stops drinking) and allow him to provide comfort to dying patients at the hospice he works at. Aided by a cat, “Azzie,” that can sense when someone is about to die, Dan acquires the nickname “Doctor Sleep.”
In the sequel, Ewan McGregor stars as the grownup Danny Torrance. Doctor Sleep hits movie theaters November 8th.
