Stephen King responds to “Stand” remake rumors


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Once news broke that Hollywood planned a big-screen adaptation of Stephen King’s massive, post-apocalyptic tome “The Stand,” readers no doubt grew curious as to King’s take on the idea.

Luckily, EW had access to the author (what with him once being a regular columnist for the weekly mag), and asked him for his thoughts. He responded with 10, which you can check out here:

King has always been honest and upfront about his work – and his opinions. From what I gather, he wasn’t fond of Molly Ringwald, who played Frannie Goldsmith in the 1994 ABC miniseries version of “The Stand.”

What else did King have to say?

“I didn’t know anything about the remake until I read about it on the Internet,” Kind admitted. That’s sad. He also added, “Rutger Hauer is a little too old to play the Walkin’ Dude, and that’s too bad.”

Agreed. As for the length, Kind said, “You absolutely can’t make it as a two-hour movie. If it was a trilogy of films…maybe.”

Again, agreed. The studios should hire King on as a consultant for this project. Who better than King to lead them down the right path?
