Josh Boone to Adapt Stephen King's The Stand into a Limited Series?

There has been seemingly endless talk over the past few years that Stephen King's THE STAND was finally going to be making its way to the screen via such filmmakers as Ben Affleck and Josh Boone (The NEW MUTANTS) and it seems today that one of those filmmakers is still in the running.

Yes, if BDM is right, then director Josh Boone has confirmed that he will be taking the helm of a limited series based on King's THE STAND right after finishing up on Fox's THE NEW MUTANTS.

Josh Boone on THE STAND:

I am still working on The Stand and will be making it next as soon as New Mutants opens in April as a limited series. I've been working on it for four years and I promise you it will be a faithful adaptation of the book with an incredible cast.

And there you have it? Maybe. We'll wait for 100% confirmation before we start celebrating too much. That said, Boone's comments do line up with what Stephen King hinted at last month:

Stephen King on THE STAND:

There’s talk about doing The Stand as an extended TV series, possibly for Showtime or CBS All Access...

What do you think of THE STAND becoming a limited series? Works for me! Let us know what you think in the comments below or on social media.

Stephen King's 1922 starring Tom Jane hits Netflix this Friday.

Extra Tidbit: I wish IT had been a limited series. I know, I say that all the time.
