‘Actress Jocelin Donahue has joined Warner Bros’ Doctor Sleep, based on the 2013 Stephen King novel, which was the sequel to 1977’s The Shining.
Mike Flanagan is directing the pic with a cast led by Ewan McGregor and Rebecca Ferguson. The film follows a grownup Danny Torrance (McGregor) struggling with the same demons of anger and alcoholism that plagued his father.
Ferguson plays Rose The Hat, the head of a cult that feeds on the “steam” created by young people who have a touch of the “shining.” Bruce Greenwood, Kyliegh Curran, Carl Lumbly, Alex Essoe, and Zahn McClarnon also star. Flanagan penned the adaptation which Trevor Macy and Jon Berg are producing. Donahue, who co-starred opposite Greta Gerwig in the 2009 film House Of The Devil, is repped by The Group Management and Global Artists Agency.’
