Donahue joins Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson, Kyliegh Curran, Bruce Greenwood, Alyn Lind, Alex Essoe, and Carl Lumbly in the picture.
The synopsis for Doctor Sleep reads:
Doctor Sleep takes place years after the events at the Overlook Hotel and focuses on the now middle-aged Danny who is still traumatized. He’s followed in his father’s footsteps and has problems with anger management and alcoholism. He soon gives up drinking and settles in a small town in New Hampshire. While there, his psychic abilities start to resurface and he develops a psychic link with a 12-year-old girl named Abra Stone who he must save after he discovers her life is being threatened by a tribe of paranormals led by a man named Rose the Hat.
At present, Doctor Sleep is booked in for a January 2020 release.
