Production Wraps on Mike Flanagan’s ‘Doctor Sleep’

Doctor Sleep– the highly anticipated follow-up to The Shining by director Mike Flanagan- is one step closer to hitting theaters! The prolific filmmaker announced on his Facebook page that production on the film has officially wrapped. He also reflected on the awesome experience he had making the movie:

So that's a wrap on DOCTOR SLEEP! It's been a long, crazy, truly unique experience. I read the novel as soon as it came…

It’s been a busy year for Flanagan, who recently wowed Netflix viewers with his excellent The Haunting of Hill House series this October. With more than a year until the film’s planned theatrical release date, Flanagan will now focus on his post production duties for the movie. The film is based on Stephen King’s 2013 novel of the same name, and it features the return of Danny Torrance… now all grown up after his traumatic experience at The Overlook Hotel all of those years ago.

Doctor Sleep will hit theaters on January 24th, 2020. The film will star Rebecca Ferguson, Jacob Tremblay, and Ewan McGregor. Stay tuned to Horror News Network for more details on this exciting project as they break!

He is particularly interested in the critical and analytical discussion of the best stories the horror genre has to offer. One of his largest works on the topic is a study on the portrayals of people with disabilities in horror films.
