  • Ewan Mc Gregor reportedly joins 'Shining' sequel 'Doctor Sleep' as grown-up Danny Torrance

Either way, if McGregor does sign on, it's another feather in the cap of a continually burgeoning Stephen King cinematic universe.

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

The Doctor Sleep movie was first announced earlier this year with Mike Flanagan (Gerald's Game) attached to direct.

But with It earning more than $700,000 worldwide for New Line a year ago, Doctor Sleep is now being fast-tracked into pre-production.

Doctor Sleep picks up with Danny decades after the events of The Shining, when he follows in his father's footsteps of alcoholism and anger issues, blotting out his lingering trauma and his "shining" abilities with his drinking problems. Both have led to the dilution of his "Shining" powers, which slowly begin to re-emerge as Danny turns to sobriety, and uses them to help hospice patients. They've found that their powers grow if they inhale the "steam" that comes off others with the power to shine, when they are suffering painful deaths. Stanley Kubrick directed the 1980 adaptation of King's original novel, which starred Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall and is revered as one of the best horror movies of all time (even though King himself famously wasn't particularly fond of the adaptation).

He can next be seen playing Christopher Robin's eponymous character in the fantasy comedy-drama film of the same name scheduled to be released on August 3, 2018.
