Ewan McGregor to Star in 'Shining' Sequel.

Ewan McGregor will star as Danny Torrance in Warner Bros.' adaptation of the Stephen King novel "Dr. Sleep", the sequel to horror classic "The Shining".

Sources say King has given his blessing to McGregor's casting.

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 film.
