Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation actress Rebecca Ferguson will be seen star alongside Ewan McGregor in Warner Bros’ film adaptation of Stephen King novel Doctor Sleep. Published in 2013, Doctor Sleep is the sequel to King’s The Shining, which was adapted in 1977 by Stanley Kubrick for a movie by the same name, starring Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall.

The upcoming film will feature McGregor as Danny Torrance, the grown-up son of Nicholson, who in the original film had psychic powers and watched his dad descend into a murderous rage, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Not many details of Ferguson’s character have been revealed by the studio.

The story is about Danny, who is a raging alcoholic dealing with his re-emerging psychic powers by working in a hospice, where he provides assistance to dying patients and earns the nickname Dr Sleep. Into his life enters Abra Stone, a little girl with psychic abilities of her own, and Torrance finds himself caught up in a battle with a group of murderous kidnappers that want her essence. Gerald’s Game director Mike Flanagan will helm the pic. Trevor Macy, Flanagan’s producing partner, is producing along with Jon Berg of Vertigo Entertainment.

Ferguson was last seen in Fox’s The Greatest Showman and is presently looking forward to the release of Mission: Impossible Fallout, which marks the sixth outing of Tom Cruise as the famed IMF operative Ethan Hunt. Written, co-produced and directed by Christopher McQuarrie, the film also stars Simon Pegg, Henry Cavill, Angela Bassett, Ving Rhames, Sean Harris, Michelle Monaghan, and Alec Baldwin.
