Akiva Goldsman to Write ‘The Shining’ Sequel, ‘Doctor Sleep’

Warner Bros. has moved forward with its “The Shining” sequel — titled “Doctor Sleep” — under the pen of Academy Award-winning writer Akiva Goldsman (“A Beautiful Mind”).

According to The Tracking Board, Goldsman has boarded “Doctor Sleep” after writing the first draft for Sony’s “The Dark Tower” adaptation — which has recently cast Matthew McConaughey as its lead.

Prior to writing the “Shining” sequel, Goldsman penned other literary adaptations like “The Da Vinci Code,” “The Divergent Series: Insurgent,” “The 5th Wave,” and even “Batman Forever” and “Batman & Robin” back in the ’90s.

Taking place years after the incident at the Overlook Hotel, a now-adult Danny copes with his anger management and alcoholism in a small town in New Hampshire, where he soon learns of his psychic abilities and link with a 12-year-old girl named Abra Stone, who becomes threatened by a tribe of paranormals, headed by a man named Rose the Hat.

Produced by Jon Berg and Jon Gonda for Warner Bros., “Doctor Sleep” hasn’t been given a release date.
