Mike Flanagan on Doctor Sleep
The director of netflix exclusive Gerald’s Game wants a stab at another Stephen King book, the sensational sequel to The Shining, Doctor Sleep. Mike Flanagan spoke with liljas library about his films, where he revealed what he would like to work on next.
“There are so many. But the ones I’d want to do the most are DOCTOR SLEEP and LISEY’S STORY. In both cases, it’s because I identify with the protagonists so much. LISEY’S STORY is a stunning piece of work, a beautiful exploration of marriage. And who wouldn’t want to venture back into the world of Danny Torrence?”
