The World Will Shine Again. Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson and newbie Kyliegh Curran star in the eldritch thriller, directed by Mike Flanagan, from his own playscript based upon the novel by Stephen King.
Still irrevocably scarred by the trauma he endured as a kid at the Overlook, Dan Torrance has combated to find some pretext of peace. But that peace is ruined when he encounters Abra, a gallant teen with her own mighty extrasensory gift, also known as the “sparkle.” Instinctively acknowledging that Dan shares her power, Abra has searched for him out, desperate for his help against the ruthless Rose the Hat and her devotees, The True Knot, who feed off the sparkle of innocents in their quest for immortality.
Forming an implausible alliance, Dan and Abra engage in a vicious life-or-death battle with Rose. Abra’s innocence and unafraid embrace of her glisten compel Dan to implore his own powers as never before—at once facing his dreads and reawakening the ghosts of the past.
“Doctor Sleep” stars Ewan McGregor (“Star Wars: Episodes I, II & III,” “T2 Trainspotting”) as Dan Torrance, Rebecca Ferguson (the “Mission: Unfeasible” films, “The Greatest Showman”) as Rose the Hat, and Kyliegh Curran, in her major feature film debut, as Abra. The main ensemble cast in addition consists of Carl Lumbly, Zahn McClarnon, Emily Alyn Lind, Bruce Greenwood, Jocelin Donahue, Alex Essoe and Cliff Curtis.
Trevor Macy and Jon Berg produced the film, with Roy Lee, Scott Lumpkin, Akiva Goldsman and Kevin McCormick serving as executive producers.
Flanagan’s behind-the-scene imaginative team was led by director of photography Michael Fimognari (“The Haunting of Hill House”), production designers Maher Ahmad (“Get Hard”) and Elizabeth Boller (“Hush”), and costume designer Terry Anderson (“Den of Thieves”). The music score is composed by The Newton Brothers (“The Haunting of Hill House”).
