King updated fans with his 2013 sequel novel Doctor Sleep, and now audiences will finally get to see what became of the young Danny Torrance and his special aptitude for seeing diabolical things when director Mike Flanagan's feature film opens in theaters this fall.
Wake up! The Doctor Sleep trailer is here! Check out the Doctor Sleep trailer in the player below! Danny still possesses the "shining" abilities that the Overlook's phantoms were after, and he is still traumatized by the horrific events that took place at the isolated hotel when he was a young boy. If the finished film (in theaters on November 8) is as intriguing and as deftly executed as its first official trailer, Doctor Sleep will be joining the It franchise as contemporary high-class, high-performance adaptations of Stephen King novels, the sort that that were once relatively elusive for Hollywood despite decades of steady effort.
Still irrevocably scarred by the trauma he endured as a child at the Overlook, Dan Torrance has fought to find some semblance of peace. Abra's innocence and fearless embrace of her shine compel Dan to call upon his own powers as never before - at once facing his fears and reawakening ghosts of the past.
Trevor Macy and Jon Berg produced the film, with Roy Lee, Scott Lumpkin, Akiva Goldsman and Kevin McCormick serving as executive producers.
Flanagan has made a name for himself as a well-known horror filmmaker, responsible for directing, writing and editing nearly all films he has worked on, most recently with the Netflix series "The Haunting of Hill House". The music score is composed by The Newton Brothers ("The Haunting of Hill House"). The job allows him to use his "shining" power for good, helping dying patients pass away peacefully, which earns the nickname "Doctor Sleep".
