'The Shining' Is Getting The Sequel It Deserves, So Get Ready To SCREAM

Heeeeere's Danny!

'The Shining' Is Getting The Sequel It Deserves, So Get Ready To SCREAM Warner Bros.

The Shining is one of the most iconic horror films of all time, and by now, you’re probably all across the new Netflix series, The Haunting Of Hill House. 

Well, these two terrifying films are coming together, because The Haunting of Hill House’s director, Mike Flanagan, will be taking on the new adaptation of Stephen King’s novel, Doctor Sleep, which is the sequel to The Shining!

The film will star Ewan McGregor as a grown-up Danny Torrance, the son of Jack (who was played by Jack Nicholson).

Mike said of the sequel, "There is no version of the world where I am trying not to acknowledge one of the greatest films ever made. There's no upside in shying away from that reality.

"At the same time, this is not The Shining. It's its own story and in a very specific way. If you've read the book, you know exactly why it's so different but it's quite a tightrope that we're walking I think.

"I'm having a great time doing it. I'm just going to get the movie out and then turn off the internet for two weeks and see how it all goes."

We cannot wait for this!
