Los Angeles, May 9 (IANS) After the psychological horror thriller “Doctor Sleep”, director Mike Flanagan will be adapting Stephen Kings 2014 novel “Revival”.
Flanagan along with Trevor Macy will be filming the author’s 2014 novel for Warner Bros, reports hollywoodreporter.com.
Flanagan is writing the script, and he has an option to direct it as well. Flanagan and Macy will produce through Intrepid Pictures.
The story is about the relationship between a “heroin-addicted musician and a dubious faith healer with a hidden agenda”. It’s about one trying to find a way to communicate with his departed wife and child, but ends up connecting with a devil.
Recently, Flanagan and Macy adapted “Doctor Sleep” based on King’s 2013 novel by the same name and was a sequel to horror classic “The Shining”. The movie didn’t perform well on the box office, quashing hopes for another part of the franchise.
Flanagan brought the world of “Doctor Sleep”, the sequel to the horror classic “The Shining”, alive with actor Ewan McGregor in the role of Danny Torrance and Rebecca Ferguson as the main antagonist. Warner Bros. released the film in India on November 8 last year.
They are also behind the critically acclaimed Netflix series “Haunting of Hill House”.
