Heeeeere's "The Shining" sequel!
It was already revealed that Rebecca Ferguson was signing on as cult leader Rose the Hat.
Deadline added two more names, which will be familiar to "The Shining" fans:
Carl Lumbly ("Supergirl," "Alias") will play Dick Halloran, with Alex Essoe ("Starry Eyes," "Midnighters") as Wendy Torrance. In Stanley Kubrick's 1980 film, Scatman Crothers played Dick and Shelley Duvall played Danny's mother Wendy.
Here's a "Doctor Sleep" synopsis, via Deadline:
"'Doctor Sleep' begins as Torrance carries the trauma of the Overlook Hotel into adulthood. He’s become a reflection of his murderous father, with lingering rage and a drinking problem that dulls his pain as well as his 'shining' powers. Those powers return when he embraces sobriety and uses his gift to help the dying at a hospice. He establishes a psychic connection with a young girl who shares his extreme abilities and is being targeted by a scary group with similar abilities. 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."
"Doctor Sleep" is scheduled for release in theaters on January 24th, 2020.
