Rebecca Ferguson Joins 'The Shining' Sequel Cast!

Rebecca Ferguson is in negotiations to join the cast of Doctor Sleep, the upcoming sequel to the classic horror film The Shining.

Ewan McGregor is set to star as the adult version of Danny Torrance, who was just a child in the first film.

Doctor Sleep will be an adaptation of Stephen King‘s novel and it follows Danny as he “carries the trauma of the Overlook Hotel into adulthood. He’s become a reflection of his murderous father, with lingering rage and a drinking problem that dulls his pain as well as his ‘shining’ powers. Those powers return when he embraces sobriety and uses his gift to help the dying at a hospice,” according to Variety.

Danny then teams up with a young girl who has similar powers and is being targeted by a group with similar abilities.

Rebecca‘s character is not yet known. She will soon be seen in Mission: Impossible – Fallout and she starred in last year’s hit musical The Greatest Showman.
