This won't be the first King project for Flanagan, who wrote and directed 2017's Gerald's Game, which starred Carla Gugino and Bruce Greenwood. Aided by a prescient cat, he becomes "Doctor Sleep". Flanagan already caught the attention of King fans with his excellent adaptation of Gerald's Game a year ago on Netflix. He will also rewrite the screenplay, which was originally penned by Akiva Goldsman, one of the many cooks who toiled away on The Dark Tower. He will rework a previously-adapted script. Trevor Macy will help produce the Warner Bros. movie. But the main story of the novel can be told without dwelling on Danny's past. As with his murderous father, he suffers from anger and alcoholism as the result of trying to tiresome his pain. After giving up drinking, Danny rediscovers his lost shining abilities and uses them to comfort dying patients at a hospice where he earns the "Doctor Sleep" nickname. 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.
