Jacob Tremblay Joins The Cast Of The Shining Sequel Doctor Sleep

Place your right index finger in the air and repeat after me: Redrum.

While he probably hasn’t had to do that for his auditions, twelve-year-old child star Jacob Tremblay has definitely made a name for himself in his very young career. Tremblay is best known for his roles as Brie Larson’s son Jack in 2015’s Oscar-winner Room and as Auggie alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson in 2017’s Wonder. Now, adding some new depth to his resume, Tremblay has accepted a role in the next Stephen King adaptation.

Tremblay has scored a $100,000 deal to star in the film adaptation of King’s Doctor Sleep, the sequel to the King horror classic The Shining. Tremblay will be joining Ewan MacGregor, who is set to play grown-up Danny Torrance as he continues to deal with his “shining” abilities. No word yet on what character Tremblay will be playing, but one can’t help but consider the possibility of Tremblay playing a young Danny Torrance for flashback scenes in the film.

Mike Flanagan (The Haunting Of Hill House) is directing and writing the screenplay with Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful MindCinderella ManThe Da Vinci Code).
