Mike Flanagan to Direct Sequel to The Shining, Doctor Sleep

Director Mike Flanagan is going back into the world of Stephen King.

Warner Brothers studios announced today that a film adaptation of Stephen King's 2013 book "Doctor Sleep" has been greenlit for production, though no release date has been set.

British Police say the charge of skipping bail is a much less serious offense than rape, but he could still face a one-year prison sentence if convicted.

The book is a sequel to King's widely successful "The Shining" and follows its protagonist as a now grown man who has been haunted by the inhabitants of the Overlook Hotel ever since that traumatizing winter many years ago.

Flanagan is known for the films Oculus, Hush, Before I Wake, and Oujia: Origin of Evil, and won high praise from King himself for his recent adaptation of the author's novel, Gerald's Game.

He added: "I vehemently deny the allegations agnst me, they are entirely false & baseless". Panda expressed his shock in a tweet, saying, "I'm shocked".

The Hollywood Reporter broke the story about Flanagan's deal to direct Doctor Sleep. 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.

Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind) originally penned the script for the film, but Flanagan is said to be rewriting it. Goldsman will executive produce the movie, while Trevor Macy (The Strangers) and Jon Berg (Wonder Woman) will produce.

After the massive success of last year's big screen King adaptation, It, Warner Bros. was reportedly eager to greenlight another potential hitmaker. The scary group has discovered that their powers are enhanced when inhaling the "steam" that emanates from those with the shining power, especially when they suffer painful deaths. The latter was adapted into a hit movie starring Jack Nicholson in 1980. Flanagan and Macy are now in production on The Haunting of Hill House for Netflix, and their other collaborations are Hush, Ouija: Origin of Evil and Before I Wake.
