Per Variety, McGregor is set to star in Doctor Sleep, Warner Bros.' adaptation Stephen King's novel of the same name, the 2013 follow-up to his horror classic The Shining.

Yes, Ewan McGregor will be playing adult Danny in the film that Flanagan's go-to producing partner Trevor Macy will produce along with Vertigo Entertainment's Jon Berg.

McGregor is going to be taking on the role of Torrance in the movie, and Stephen King has apparently given the casting his blessing.

In Dr. Sleep, Torrance carries the trauma of the events at the Overlook Hotel into his adulthood and takes on some of the traits of his murderous father. But don't be surprised if filming begins this year. According to Variety, he has lingering rage and a drinking problem that dulls his pain as well as his "shining" powers. Stanley Kubrick directed the 1980 adaptation of King's original novel, which starred Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall and is revered as one of the best horror movies of all time (even though King himself famously wasn't particularly fond of the adaptation).

The report doesn't say what time that occurred and the sheriff's office didn't respond to requests for comment Sunday. It said Border Patrol contacted the Honduran consulate about reclaiming his body, but received no answer.

Getting sober revives Danny's powers, and he tries to put them to good use by working with terminally ill hospice patients.

Danny Lloyd played a young Danny Torrance. But after forging a bond with a young girl who also possess the same power, Danny discovers that there are bad people out there with similar gifts - and they want the girl dead.

McGregor can next be seen in Disney's "Winnie the Pooh" adaptation "Christopher Robin".
