If you are gripped by Netflix’s ‘Haunting of Hill House’ you may well be excited to learn that it’s director Mike Flanagan is teaming up with the prequels Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ewan McGregor for his next horror project.
Mike Flanagan is one of the biggest horror filmmakers working today, having also made “Gerald’s Game,” Ouija: Origin of Evil,” “Hush,” and more before adapting Shirley Jackson’s “The Haunting of Hill House” 1959 novel. Flanagan won’t be straying from horror in the future, as he’s set to direct an adaptation of Stephen King’s 2013 novel, “Doctor Sleep,” which is a sequel to “The Shining.”
The movie stars Ewan McGregor as a grown-up Danny Torrance, the son of Jack Torrance, who terrorized Danny and his mother in King’s original novel and Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 film. Flanagan was confirmed to be the “Doctor Sleep” director in January, two years before the movie comes to theaters.
