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. The big-screen adaptation of THE STAND has been a long time coming with the project entering and exiting many different hands before...

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...

Will the ending of Josh Boone's The Stand leave room for a potential sequel?

Stephen King 's THE STAND was originally released back in 1978 before being revised and expanded to over 1000 pages in 1990. The mini-series released in 1994 was widely considered one of the best King adaptations on the small screen and a recent comic book series continued the trend of retelling the classic and sprawling tale of a post-apocalyptic war between good and evil. With...

Matthew McConaughey wanted for Randall Flagg role in The Stand adaptation

This coming Monday, Matthew McConaughey could win an Emmy for his fantastic performance on True Detective; which would sit perfectly next to the Oscar he won earlier this year for DALLAS BUYERS CLUB . A man of talent and class, it’s no wonder he’s in high demand these days. He will be starring in Christopher Nolan 's anticipated epic INTERSTELLAR this November,...

Josh Boone says The Stand will be a 3-hour R-rated adaptation!

Director Josh Boone has been making the rounds promoting this weekend release of THE FAULT IN OUR STARS ( Chris enjoyed it ).

Scott Cooper exits Warner Bros. adaptation of The Stand

Another one bites the dust… Should Warner Bros. even continue to attempt an adaptation of Stephen King 's THE STAND? First, HARRY POTTER team Steve Kloves and David Yates were going to write and direct then that fell apart. Then Ben Affleck steps in only to leave to make more room for other projects, and now it seems that Scott Cooper is out as director as well....

With his roles in David Fincher 's GONE GIRL and now Zack Snyder 's MAN OF STEEL sequel as Batman, Ben Affleck is going to have to give up on some other projects he has been developing.
