New Doctor Sleep Photo Reveals Dick Hallorann, Final Trailer Coming This Sunday
You may recall from the Stephen King novel that the character did not meet an untimely demise as he did in the movie.

Mike Flanagan's upcoming Doctor Sleep is as much as an adaptation of the Stephen King novel as it is a sequel to Stanley Kubrick's The Shining, which was in itself an adaptation of the prolific horror author's work. There are some key departures, however, one of which is the survival of Dick Hallorann, who famously dies in the film but not the book.
In this movie, the character has lived on and still has a role to play. In fact, fans can get a first glimpse at the character in the upcoming movie with a new photo released by Empire. Have a look below.
Additionally, it's been announced in an intense social media teaser that the final trailer for the film will debut this Sunday. Keep on eye on Dead Entertainment for that later this weekend and check out the below preview to hold you over until then.
Doctor Sleep brings back Danny Torrance, grown up and psychologically traumatized from what happened to him as a young boy. Danny, or Dan as he refers to himself now, spends years drifting across the country trying to find his purpose and deal with his inner-demons. He eventually settles in a New Hampshire town and finds work at a local hospice. He uses his psychic "shining" abilities to comfort the dying, and with the help of a cat that can sense the coming of death, Dan becomes known at the hospice as “Doctor Sleep.”
The cast includes Ewan McGregor (Star Wars prequels) as Dan Torrance, Kyliegh Curran as Abra Stone, Rebecca Ferguson (Life, Mission Impossible: Fallout) as Rose the Hat, Alex Essoe (Starry Eyes) as Wendy Torrance, Carl Lumbly (Alias) as Dick Halloran, Zahn McClarnon (Into the West) as Crow Daddy, and Bruce Greenwood (Star Trek, Star Trek: Into Darkness) as Dr. John.
In addition to directing, Mike Flanagan also helped rewrite a script submitted by Akiva Goldsman. Doctor Sleep is slated for release on November 8th, 2019.
