'The Shining' Sequel 'Doctor Sleep' Sets Mike Flanagan as Director
Director Mike Flanagan is going back into the world of Stephen King.

Warner Bros. has tapped Flanagan to direct The Shining sequel Doctor Sleep, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The film will adapt King's 2013 novel, which follows Danny Torrance, now an adult and battling both alcoholism as well the trauma of what happened to him as a child in a certain haunted Colorado hotel. 

Flanagan directed the well-received King adaptation Gerald's Game for Netflix, which was released last year, and has built a reputation for thoughtful horror through films such as Oculus (2013), Before I Wake (2016) and Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016). For Warner Bros., Doctor...

Review Round-Up: Before I Wake and Rock Paper Dead

  • DailyDead
For this latest review round-up, I take a look at two very different genre films I had the pleasure of catching up with over the last few weeks: Before I Wake from Mike Flanagan and Tom Holland’s Rock Paper Dead.

Before I Wake: Over the years, it has been interesting to watch Flanagan’s career, as he’s consistently challenged himself in various ways, giving us an array of stories that feel wholly unique and yet are so very distinctly a Mike Flanagan film. For anyone who has been following the journey of Before I Wake’s release, this is a project that has long been waiting for a platform in the Us, and thankfully Netflix has finally given it a proper home. A stunning mix of heartbreak and horror, Before I Wake is an emotionally-charged genre hybrid that features compelling performances from its trio of leads, and an

Mike Flanagan’s Before I Wake Coming to Netflix in the Us on January 5th

  • DailyDead
Horror fans have been looking forward to seeing Mike Flanagan's Before I Wake since the film was teased in trailers back in 2015, but bankruptcy issues at Relativity Media delayed and ultimately brought the movie's release to a halt. Since that time, Flanagan directed two well-received films for Netflix, and the streaming service has now revealed that they will bring Before I Wake out of film purgatory and into the warm glow of the TV screen.

Netflix revealed the exciting Before I Wake news in their full announcement of titles being added to their streaming lineup in January of 2018. Starring Jacob Tremblay, Thomas Jane, and Kate Bosworth, Before I Wake will be available to watch on the streaming service beginning Friday, January 5th, marking its first official release in the Us (it was previously released internationally, including in the UK by Netflix).

Other titles being added to Netflix (in the Us) include 30 Days of Night,

Mike Flanagan’s Long-Delayed ‘Before I Wake’ Finally Has a Release Date

Mike Flanagan has been on a role with Netflix over the past couple years, first with his spin on home invasion horror Hush and again this year with his triumphant Stephen King adaptation Gerald's Game, so it's fitting that the streaming network has stepped in to save his long-languished film Before I Wake. You may remember the first trailer dropping back in 2015, or perhaps the second one the year after, which landed with a shiny new release date that never came to pass. Starring Kate Bosworth, and Thomas Jane, the film follows a married couple who …

Final Trailer for Stephen Chbosky's 'Wonder' Starring Jacob Tremblay

"We all deserve a standing ovation at least once in our lives." Lionsgate has revealed the third and final official trailer for the film Wonder, adapted from R.J. Palacio's book of the same name. There have already been two previous trailers released, so why not one more to push this film. Wonder stars acclaimed young actor Jacob Tremblay (seen in Room, Before I Wake, The Book of Henry), who plays Auggie, a kid with an awkward facial difference who decides to go to public school despite being made fun of.

Interview: Gerald’S Game Director Mike Flanagan on Collaborating with Carla Gugino & the Challenges of Adapting Stephen King’s Novel

  • DailyDead
Over the last several years, filmmaker Mike Flanagan has quickly established himself as one of the best and most assured genre storytellers of the last decade. From Absentia to Oculus to Hush, as well as Ouija: Origin of Evil and Before I Wake (which this writer is still patiently waiting for a Stateside release), Flanagan has a proven track record as a confident director, and his latest project, Gerald’s Game, is another example of his ability to tell uniquely compelling stories in a way that only he can.

Daily Dead recently had the opportunity to speak with Flanagan about his experiences adapting the acclaimed Stephen King novel for Netflix, the challenges he faced with both the material as well as keeping his mostly single location story intriguing on a visual level. Flanagan also chatted about collaborating with “force of nature” Carla Gugino for Gerald’s Game and how she

Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy interview: Gerald's Game

Brendon Connelly Sep 28, 2017

The producer and director of Gerald's Game chat to us about bringing Stephen King's work to the screen...

Mike Flanagan isn't the big brand name that Stephen King is – not yet, anyway - but I'll admit it, had it been announced that somebody else was adapting King's novel Gerald's Game, my excitement would have been severely tempered.

But Flanagan did get the gig, and so I've been waiting impatiently for his film for months now. Happily, I was not even the slightest bit disappointed. Flanagan's adaptation is, while being very true to King's original, a brilliantly original, cinematic, effective and powerful work.

Last week, I spoke to Flanagan and Trevor Macy, the film's producer, about how they pulled off such a tricky adaptation, as well as Flanagan's next gig adapting Shirley Jackson's classic The Haunting Of Hill House into a “ten hour movie”. Here's how the conversation went.

Gerald's Game Trailer Brings the Stephen King Classic to Netflix

Gerald's Game Trailer Brings the Stephen King Classic to Netflix
Netflix has released the first trailer and photo for Gerald's Game, a highly-anticipated adaptation of the 1992 Stephen King novel. With the September 29 premiere just a few weeks away, it remains to be seen how much more footage will be unveiled in the next few weeks, but this adaptation seems to keep this new renaissance of Stephen King's work going, following the high-profile adaptations of The Dark Tower and It, the later of which hits theaters this weekend. While we'll have to wait and see how fans react to this thriller, it certainly seems to capture the creepy spirit of the novel.

The story centers on Gerald (Bruce Greenwood) and Jessie Burlingame as they head to their summer home on a warm weekday in October for a romantic interlude that involves adult games. After being handcuffed to her bedposts, Jessie tires of her husband's games and things take an unexpectedly tragic turn.

Coming Distractions: The trailer for Wonder looks a lot like a grade-school version of Mask

Movies like Wonder basically have “emotional button-pushing” baked into their very DNA. It’s the story of a young boy with facial disfigurement who is entering the fifth grade in a public school for the first time, trying to find friends, all while enduring the cruelties of other children. It has the obvious potential to be mawkish, sentimental pap—and god help us, we’re probably going to cry like newborn babies the second it starts, regardless of any cheap tactics, damn it all.

Still, there’s some hope for optimism here. It’s co-written and directed by Stephen Chbosky, the man behind the refreshingly blunt The Perks Of Being A Wallflower. It’s got solid talent like Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson as the parents, Daveed Diggs as a teacher, and suddenly omnipresent Jacob Tremblay (Room, Before I Wake, Shut In, The Book Of Henry, the forthcoming The Predator

A moving new trailer has been released for the upcoming film Wonder. Depending on how sensitive you are with emotions, this trailer might have the power to get you a little choked up. It's just got that heartwarming goodness. This looks like a wonderful film that carries a positive message and there's nothing wrong with a little positivity in our lives.

Wonder stars Jacob Tremblay (RoomBefore I WakeThe Book of Henry), who plays a young boy named Auggie, who was born with "facial differences that, up until now, have prevented him from going to a mainstream school, Auggie becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the local fifth grade.

The full cast includes Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson as Auggie's parents, and also featuring Daveed Diggs, Mandy Patinkin, Sonia Braga, Izabela Vidovic, Ali Liebert, and Bryce Gheisar.
