Zackary Momoh in Seven Seconds


Another actor is entering the world of "The Shining."

"Doctor Sleep" has cast Zackary Momoh, Deadline reports. His role was not identified, but he'll be involved in a story that picks up decades after the horrifying events at the Overlook Hotel. His cast mates include Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson, and Kyleigh Curran, among others.

The film centers on a grown-up Danny Torrance (McGregor), who we previously saw in "The Shining" as the boy (Danny Lloyd) whose father (Jack Nicholson) became homicidal. He'll meet a young girl who, like him, has psychic abilities, which they'll use to try to take down a dangerous cult. Both "The Shining" and "Doctor Sleep" are based on Stephen King novels; Stanley Kubrick directed the original, and Mike Flanagan is directing the sequel.

Momoh's past work includes starring as Seth Butler in Netflix's crime drama series "Seven Seconds." He was also recently cast in an upcoming film about Harriet Tubman and will reportedly play Tubman's husband.

"Doctor Sleep" is due out Jan. 24, 2020.
