Nat Wolff to star in Josh Boone's adaptation of The Stand

After going through three different directors before finally landing on THE FAULT IN OUR STARS helmer Josh Boone, THE STAND appears to be off and running as THR reports that Nat Wolff (above) has now landed a role in the film adaptation of Stephen King’s epic novel. It’s unknown as to which role Wolff will play in the film as THE STAND is made up of dozens of characters, but Boone told the site that he’s writing a part specifically for Wolff, making this the third project the duo will have worked on together.

It's nice to finally see this one moving along because for a while there it looked like we were never going to see King's story of good versus evil come to life on the big screen. I'm still curious to find out whether or not Boone found a way to turn THE STAND into a single film... Hopefully we'll find out more details soon!

Here's the synopsis of the book:

“The Stand,” originally published in 1978, is divided into three parts and launches with a pandemic that leads to the death of an estimated 99.4% of the world’s human population. The tome chronicles the cross-country odysseys undertaken by survivors who are drawn to Boulder, Colo., and Las Vegas, where a final confrontation between two camps takes place.

THE STAND was previously adapted into television miniseries for ABC in 1994, directed by Mick Garris and starring Gary Sinise, Molly Ringwald, Rob Lowe, Miguel Ferrer and Laura San Giacomo. Jimmy Miller and Roy Lee are producing the project.

Shailene Woodley starred in THE FAULT IN OUR STARS
