Doctor Sleep starring Ewan McGregor will be ready to release on November 8.

Doctor Sleep is the story of Danny Torrance, played by Ewan McGregor, who witnessed the horrors of Overlook Hotel as a child and has never really recovered from that trauma. In the trailer, we see that there are others in the world who possess the ability that Dick Hallorann once called the ‘shining’ and Danny’s powerful ability has come into play once again. We also see him heading back to the Overlook Hotel, the place that changed his life forever.

Doctor Sleep is based on the Stephen King novel of the same name that was first published in 2013. King had written it as a sequel to his 1977 novel The Shining and the book soon turned into a bestseller. It is widely known that King did not approve of Stanley Kubrick’s interpretation of his novel and was quite vocal about the same. As per King, Doctor Sleep is the sequel to his novel and not Kubrick’s adaptation.

Doctor Sleep is being directed by Mike Flanagan who has got the stamp of approval from King. In a recent interview to Entertainment Weekly, King said, “I read the (Doctor Sleep) script very, very carefully and I said to myself, ‘Everything that I ever disliked about the Kubrick version of The Shining is redeemed for me here.’”

Flanagan recently said in an interview to Kino TV that this film is not a sequel to Stanley Kubrick’s film but a “descendant” to it. While he has followed the novel, he has also recreated some imagery that has the Kubrick trademark on it. The director also acknowledged that he has incorporated some parts of Kubrick’s adaptation into his film.

One can say that Doctor Sleep has three source materials – The Shining novel, Kubrick’s movie and Doctor Sleep novel.

Doctor Sleep releases on November 8.
