Ewan McGregor Says He Channeled Jack Nicholson For ‘Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep’ | Rotten Tomatoes

  • Жарияланды 2019 ж. 5 Қар.
  • The world is set to return to the Overlook Hotel with the release of ‘Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep,’ based on the horror master’s sequel to his book ‘The Shining.’ The new movie stars Ewan McGregor as an all-grown-up Danny Torrance, who finds himself protecting a similarly gifted young girl (played by Kyleigh Curran) from a mysterious and evil group that feeds off of their powers. In the lead-up to the movie’s release, Rotten Tomatoes correspondent Naz Perez sat down with McGregor, Curran, director Mike Flanagan, and Rebecca Ferguson - who plays terrifying horror-icon-in-the-making Rose the Hat - to talk about bringing King’s stories and characters to life and their own scariest moments from Stanley Kubrick’s film version of ‘The Shining.’ For McGregor, the starting point for his performance was Danny’s original movie dad: the great Jack Nicholson.

    Rebecca did such a good job as Rose The Hat. It would be wonderful if she was nominated for awards for her work in this film. Everyone really were just perfect and very believable. Very scary!

    I read the book last winter. The character of Bruce Greenwood had a much bigger role in the book. I thought he would have a bigger part in the movie. Him not being with Danny during all of the movie was a big difference. I never expect a movie to be the same as the book. It was a great scarey movie. Totally loved it. The casting was perfect which is always important for a good movie.

      @Colton Zabel Dude, I simply stated my opinion. I am not saying that I am right, and you can like the shining if you want. You have no reason to be mean about it, I just stated my opinion. You literally have nothing to gain from insulting me here. So tell me, why would you post that?

      Beaston Gaming The Shining will continue to be studied and revered forever, since, you know, it is a masterpiece. Doctor Sleep will be on the discount bin within 3 months. Thank god Ewan McGregor was there to save it. Just because King is bitter that the movie is better than the novel, doesn’t mean you need to be, as well...

      At least they offered it to him, but he declined. He's fully 100% retired, and I don't think they could cut a check that would bring him out. So I take some comfort in knowing that they were willing.

    I think the scariest thing for me in The Shining is when Jack Torrance breaks through the door with the ax and then sticks his head in and says here's Johnny! I felt for Shelley Duvall's character and thought it was really traumatic that there was a Madman trying to break in to the bathroom and she had no way of Escape.

    You keep saying Jack Nicholson but I think you really should stay the character of Jack Torrance because Jack Torrance is actually the character that is the father of Danny Torrance not really Jack Nicholson. Jack Nicholson is just playing a character in a roll and he's a lot different than Jack Torrance.

    He's right on about dads. As men that were raised by our fathers we do have a lot of qualities that our fathers had. Sometimes I wonder even if I sound like my father at times and the way he articulates and his tone.

      When he said that, I wondered if the same is equally true for mothers and daughters. I think maybe it isn't, but I don't have anything to back that except except my own experiences and feelings with my own mother (whom I love - we're just not much alike). I wonder if anyone's ever done a study about it.
