Rebecca Ferguson Joins Ewan McGregor in “Doctor Sleep”

Fantastic news! Rebecca Ferguson is in negotiations to co-star with Ewan McGregor in Warner Bros.’ adaptation of the Stephen King novel Doctor Sleep, the sequel to horror classic The Shining. McGregor is on board to star as the adult version of Danny Torrance in the pic. It is unknown who Ferguson will be playing.

Mike Flanagan, who helmed Netflix’s adaptation of the King novella Gerald’s Game, is directing. Flanagan’s producing partner, Trevor Macy, will produce along with Vertigo Entertainment’s Jon Berg. Warner Bros. had been developing this film, as well as The Shining prequel Overlook Hotel, for years, but the studio struggled to secure a budget for either movie. Following the success of New Line’s It, every studio with any sort of King IP under its roof has fast-tracked each property into pre-production.
