The Stand delayed as Josh Boone moves forward with Stephen King's Revival

Josh Boone's The Stand will be preceded by an 8-part miniseries on Showtime

I'm one of those jerks who have neither read Stephen King 's "The Stand" nor seen the 1994 TV miniseries of the same time, but I am aware that "The Stand" is quite the gigantic book and therefore a tricky thing to condense.

Josh Boone says his adaptation of The Stand will be at least four movies

Stephen King 's THE STAND is a big ass book. The uncut edition comes in at over a thousand pages and has already spawned a six hour mini-series and a thirty-one issue comic book. Obviously, whittling down such a story into a two hour film was never going to happen, but now it looks like it may need more than two films to tell the entire tale. In an appearance on Kevin Smith 's...
