While the world wonders about his potential involvement in the Obi-Wan Kenobi movie that looks more and more likely in the wake of Solo's release, Ewan McGregor might have just bagged a huge role in another franchise entirely.

A note to the skeptics: Mr. King has reportedly "given his blessing to McGregor's casting".

Ewan McGregor has been cast as the adult Danny Torrance in Doctor Sleep, the Warner Bros. adaptation of Stephen King's 2013 sequel to The Shining.

Stanley Kubrick directed the original adaptation of "The Shining", starring Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall.

The Doctor Sleep movie was first announced earlier this year with Mike Flanagan (Gerald's Game) attached to direct. McGregor will play the adult version of Danny Torrence, the terrified tot plagued by psychic powers who you probably remember best for screaming "Redrum" while he watched his father descend into a murderous rage.

Doctor Sleep, the sequel to the 1977 book The Shining picks up with Torrance in middle age, still haunted by demons both real and internal. Those powers return when he embraces sobriety and uses his gift to help the dying at a hospice. His last feature was another King adaption, Gerald's Game, that arrived on Netflix a year ago. He establishes a psychic connection with a young girl who shares his extreme abilities, and who is being targeted by a group with similar abilities. The actor next stars in Disney's "Christopher Robin", which opens August 3.
