The first trailer for the upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep is here. Doctor Sleep is a sequel to the Shining and follows Danny Torrance (Ewan McGregor) as an adult as he tries to protect a girl with similar abilities as his from a gang known as The True Knot who feed on psychich powers to remain immortal. The film seems to incorporate the imagery of Stanley Kubrick adaptation of The Shining (1980), down to the changed room number (it’s 217 – not 237 in the novel).

Mike Flanagan directs, having previously tackled King with his adaption of Gerald’s Game. His most recent project is the horror tv series The Haunting of Hill House.

Doctor Sleep will hit theatres this Halloween season.
