The story of Doctor Sleep picks up decades after the events of The Shining, with Danny growing up into a damaged man after surviving his father's murderous rampage at the Overlook Hotel.

Ewan McGregor has been cast to play Jack Nicholson's screen son Danny Torrance in the sequel to The Shining.

McGregor is best known for playing Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars prequel trilogy, the Trainspotting movies, Moulin Rouge! and Salmon Fishing in the Yemen.

Variety reports that the film focuses on Danny all grown-up as he deals with the reappearance of his psychic powers and some understandable emotional issues which have lead him to turn to alcohol.

US shows new de facto embassy in Taiwan amid China tensions
Beijing is extremely suspicious of Tsai, believing that Taiwan's first female president seeks formal independence for the island. The US switched diplomatic recognition to China in 1979 but maintains close economic, political and security ties with Taiwan.

The 1980 horror film was based on a Stephen King novel.

Flanagan is known for such horror films as Before I Wake and Hush, but also recently turned King's Gerald's Game into a popular Netflix series. It would be another 33 years before a follow-up was published, following Dan Torrance as he continues to deal with his "shining" powers as well as the alcoholism and rage that he inherited from his father.

Getting sober revives Danny's powers, and he tries to put them to good use by working with terminally ill hospice patients. During this time, he develops a connection with a young girl, Abra Stone, who comes to possess the same Shining abilities as he does. Doctor Sleep will be hitting theaters in 2020.

McGregor can next be seen in Disney's "Winnie the Pooh" adaptation "Christopher Robin".
