Ewan's Down For Some Red Rum

All these years and I still haven't read my copy of Doctor Sleep, Stephen King's 2013 sequel to The Shining - will them casting Ewan McGregor in the movie version do it? Will my Trainspotting amour finally shove me over the edge? Probably! Stay tuned. Anyway yes tis true the Moulin Rouge crooner and premiere Scottish cock-rocket himself is going to play Growed Up Danny Torrance in the movie says Variety. I think Ewan is actually fantabulous casting if you've got Danny Lloyd on the mind... 

I can totally see it. Even better is the news, which isn't news since we already knew this but the reminder, anyway - that Gerald's Game director Mike Flanagan is still attached - we expect good things from Flanagan since he's given us good things basically every time he's gone up to bat so far. Anyway I've avoided reading too much about what the story of Doctor Sleep is since I've been meaning to read the book for half a decade, so you got me. Something tells me something bad happens? Just a hunch.

What is it with Ewan playing grown up versions of fictional kids? First Christopher Robin, now this-- maybe he'll be playing the grown-up Elliott next in an E.T. sequel. But no matter, it's always nice to see him on the big screen.
