The Shining sequel: Ewan McGregor to headline movie

While the world wonders about his potential involvement in the Obi-Wan Kenobi movie that looks more and more likely in the wake of Solo's release, Ewan McGregor might have just bagged a huge role in another franchise entirely.

Ewan will play Danny Torrance in the upcoming adaptation of the Stephen King novel, who reportedly has "given his blessing" personally to the casting.

Stanley Kubrick directed the original adaptation of "The Shining", starring Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall.

The two states also experienced the second and third biggest increases, more than 48 percent, in the period studied by the CDC. But when at-risk individuals and those who know them reach out for help, the chance of suicide significantly decreases.

"Doctor Sleep" begins as Torrance carries the trauma of the Overlook Hotel into adulthood. 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.

While the idea of a "Shining" sequel may worry horror fans, the source material coming from King himself and the involvement of director Mike Flanagan bode well for the final product. But when he embraces sobriety, his psychic powers return and he uses his abilities to help dying patients in a hospice where he earns the nickname Dr. Sleep. Flanagan has become a genre favorite over the years with well-received horror efforts like "Oculus", "Hush", and "Gerald's Game". The actor next stars in Disney's "Christopher Robin", which opens August 3.

He meets a little girl Abra Stone who also has psychic powers similar to his own and he gets caught up in a plot to kidnap her to gain control of her essence.
