‘Doctor Sleep’ Star Kyliegh Curran is Excited

If Kyliegh Curran could describe her experience in Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep, she would say ‘exciting.’

Curran just started the press tour for The Shining sequel and chatted with multiple outlets all week. It was only during this time, it hit Curran that she was starring in a major motion picture.

“It was kind of a delayed reaction actually,” said Curran over the phone with The Nerds of Color. “When all the press started, I finally started thinking ‘oh, this is really big and super exciting.’ It was more excitement to be a part of this film.”

NOC Review: ‘Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep’ Shines Bright!

Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of The Shining is largely seen as one of the greatest horror films ever put to screen. It’s also definitely my second favorite horror film of all time. So as a fan, I firmly believe, by and large, that as a property I hold in such high regard, it should not be franchised, sequel-ized, rebooted, or remade in any way, shape, or form… unless talented filmmaker, Mike Flanagan (Gerald’s GameHaunting of Hill House) is doing it (or to a lesser degree, Spielberg is paying homage to it)!

Final ‘Doctor Sleep’ Poster Pays Homage to Danny’s Childhood

In the final poster for Stephen King’s sequel to The Shining, Doctor Sleep, Danny Torrance (Ewan McGregor) is confronted by his younger self.

The previous poster released paid homage to The Shining’s theatrical posters with the face cutout and vibrant yellow background. In this moody red scheme, which kind of reminds me of the river of blood scene, Danny returns to the Outlook Hotel ready to face his demons.

We’ll find out soon next month.

Doctor Sleep opens in theaters on November 8.

Return to The Overlook Hotel in the New Trailer for ‘Doctor Sleep’

Earlier this week, Warner Bros. dropped the trailer for Mike Flanagan’s (Haunting of Hill House, Gerald’s Game) adaptation of Stephen King’s sequel to The ShiningDoctor Sleep!

The vibe looks creepy and Ewan McGregor looks great as a now-adult Danny Torrance. If the movie is up to the standard of all of Flanagan’s other works, I think WB’s looking at a winner. Check out the trailer here:

Dark Dude, Dark Tower

Another casting announcement, another collective nerdy white boy meltdown. This time, they are directing their ire towards the rumblings that Idris Elba is “the frontrunner” for Roland Deschain in the movie adaptation of Stephen King’s brilliant (well, except for books 5 and 6) The Dark Tower series. I won’t go into why I love the series or what it is about, but for those of you who are unfamiliar or want to know more, click here. Needless to say it is Stephen King, so the series is a masterwork of imagination, storytelling, and world building. I think folks were fancasting this series in the early ’80s, with Clint Eastwood being the near unanimous choice for Deschain. Back in the day, the choice was spot on. Hell, even King alluded to it. The only clear choice for Deschain is Viggo Mortensen, not Elba.

Pub Deal Announcement: Shadowshaper

Originally posted at Ghoststar.net

In January 2009, I decided to write a book. I’ve always written, always made up strange worlds and sent characters hurdling into them, always dreamt of monsters. But until that day, I was scattered: a screenplay here, a few essays there. Some poems. None of ‘em went very far.

I’d read all the Harry Potters and loved them, loved how they immersed me in the world so thoroughly and stayed grounded and exciting. And I wanted something more… I’d just finished Junot’s Brief and Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao and Walter Mosley’s Six Easy Pieces and the combined ferocity of those two singular and relentlessly truthful voices lit a fire inside me. Octavia Butler’s work stoked that fire and Stephen King’s On Writing reminded me that writing a book was something that can be done, long as you sit down and do it.

So I did.
