Besides Ewan McGregor, Dan Stevens, Chris Evans, Matt Smith and Jeremy Renner were considered and have met with the director for the lead role. Even John Cusack had expressed interest. This is filmmaker Mike Flanagan's second adaptation of a Stephen King novel, since the Netflix film 'Gerald's Game' in 2017. Stephen King decided to write the sequel of 'The Shining' in 1998 during a book signing when a fan asked him about what had happened to Danny Torrance.
