More from Ewan McGregor about Doctor Sleep:

"Stephen King notoriously didn't like 'The Shining.' He didn't like the fact that they didn't end the movie the way he ended his novel. I think he felt it wasn't a faithful adaptation," McGregor says. "Our script is very faithful to his novel. But for one thing. And I'm not going to give anything away."
