    Great news! I loved his adaptation of Gerald's Game. Looking forward to his The Haunting of Hill House Netflix series, too. Love me some Carla Gugino!

    Warner Bros. has announced some major shifts to their upcoming release schedule as they’ve delayed the adaptation of The Six Billion Dollar Man by a full year, pushed Godzilla: King of Monsters back two months to replace Billion‘s slot, moved up the release of Crazy Rich Asians and officially announced the release of their adaptation of The Shining sequel, Doctor Sleep.

    The Six Billion Dollar Man has been in the works for over 20 years now, but now has Mark Wahlberg (Patriots Day) attached to star in the lead role. It’s been a tough few weeks for the adaptation of the hit 70’s sci-fi series, first losing its director at the beginning of the month and now the film has been pushed back a year from May 31, 2019 to June 5, 2020.

    Because its release date is considered prime real estate, Warner Bros. has chosen to move its long-awaited sequel to the 2014 adaptation of Godzilla to the empty slot. The next entry in the Monster-verse will now debut May 31, 2019 instead of March 22. Michael Dougherty of Trick ‘r Treat and Krampus directs.

    Furthermore, Doctor Sleep, their adaptation of the novel sequel to Stephen King’s The Shining has been set for a January 24, 2020 release date. The film was fast-tracked by Warner Bros. following the success of It with Mike Flanagan set to direct, making it his second King adaptation after the acclaimed Gerald’s Game.

    Finally, Crazy Rich Asians’ release date has been bumped up two days from August 17 to August 15. Jon M. Chu directs the adaptation of the worldwide bestseller which stars Constance Wu, Gemma Chan, Lisa Lu, and Awkwafina, with Ken Jeong and Michelle Yeoh.

    Huh, I had heard this was being done as a TV series. Interesting. I really enjoyed the book so I'll be looking forward to it in either medium.

    Great minds, right?

    Do you recall where you saw the announcement as a TV series. I remember that it sounded like a better production in that form. Wonder why they decided to go the other way. Seems to me that it would be better on TV and not draw immediate comparisons to the two movies and therefore have a better footing. JMHO

    Oh, I believe you, dude. Just stuck in my head about the TV series and I can't recall where I saw it or anything. Maybe its just wishful thinking. lol

    Ewan McGregor will star as Danny Torrance in Warner Bros.’ adaptation of the Stephen King novel “Dr. Sleep,” the sequel to horror classic “The Shining.”

    Sources say King has given his blessing to McGregor’s casting.

    This is great news. The real casting decision, IMHO will be, Rose though, no?

    I like Ewan but I can't see him as Danny. Someone suggested Hugh Dancy, I think he'd be good.

    Maybe Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things) could be Abra?

    She's great but maybe a bit too old now? I can't quite remember how old she's in the book.

    I think McGregor is perfect for the role.

    Very excited for this, and I think McGregor will knock it out of the park! Whoever said Millie Bobbi Brown from Stranger things for Abra is definitely on to something. Even if they have to age up the character a few years, I can absolutely see it. I wonder who they'll be chasing for Rose the Hat. While reading, I always pictured Eva Green

    Eva Green would be perfect for that part IMO.

    It will probably end up being Iris Elba as Danny and Matthew McConaughey as Rose the Hat.😛

    Seconding (or thirding) that Eva Green would make a great Rose.

    Interesting casting choice. I'll admit I didn't immediately imagine her as Rose the Hat, but I'm willing to give her the benefit of the doubt. I really liked her character in the book, so I'll be anxious to see how she does
