A Director Has Been Tapped For 'The Shining' Sequel—And He's Got Some Stephen King Cred
Updated 4 months ago

Mike Flanagan will be directing Doctor Sleep, the much-anticipated sequel to Stephen King's The Shining. King was reportedly never a fan of Stanley Kubrick's interpretation of the novel, but perhaps he'll enjoy Flanagan's sequel, which follows "Redrum" character Danny Torrance as an adult suffering from the same nightmares that plagued his father. Flanagan, who is well known for Gerald’s Game, Oculus, and Ouija: Origin of Evil, will rewrite a script penned by Akiva Goldsman.

Flanagan shared his excitement in a tweet:

Fans and peers alike can't wait, either.

Naturally, people had some casting suggestions.

No pressure!
