Dec. 1 (UPI) -- Filming on The Shining sequel Doctor Sleep is complete, writer-director Mike Flanagan announced Saturday.
"So that's a wrap on DOCTOR SLEEP! It's been a long, crazy, truly unique experience," Flanagan wrote in a Facebook post.
He added: "I read the novel as soon as it came out back in 2013, fascinated and moved by the epic story of Dan Torrance and Abra Stone, but I never imagined for a moment that I'd be the person to bring it to the big screen. It's been an honor to spend the last five months with this fantastic cast and crew, and to be trusted with Stephen King's extraordinary story. One of the highlights of my career, without a doubt. Shine on, everyone. Shine on."
Flanagan is best known for helming the Netflix horror series The Haunting of Hill House, based on Shirley Jackson's classic novel.
Doctor Sleep follows the adult version of the terrorized boy featured in The Shining. Starring Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson, Kyliegh Curran, Bruce Greenwood, Zahn McClarnon, Jacob Tremblay and Emily Alyn Lind, the sequel is set for release in 2020, IndieWire said.
