In the novel, Danny Torrance, the young son of Jack and Wendy Torrance in The Shining, is a grown adult and still dealing with his abilities that he first experienced at the Overlook Hotel.

The film - which will be released on January 24, 2020 - is being fast-tracked by Warner Bros and apparently McGregor has Stephen King's blessing, which is always a good start Doesn't mean he'll like the finished product though.

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. McGregor will play the adult version of Danny Torrence, the terrified tot plagued by psychic powers who you probably remember best for screaming "Redrum" while he watched his father descend into a murderous rage.

Mike Flanagan is now on board to write and direct, with filming slated to start later this year. Danny now works in a hospice care facility, where he uses his abilities to help take care of patients on their way to the grave, which prompts the nickname "Doctor Sleep".

Ewan McGregor can be seen later this year in Disney's Christopher Robin alongside Hayley Atwell.
