Stephen King’s “The Stand” heading to the big screen

By Sean O’Connell Stephen King’s “The Stand” remains one of his richest novels – ranking right up there with “It” and the “Dark Tower” series as one of the author’s all-time greats – but has remained a tough nut to crack for filmmakers looking to adapt the epic story.

That’s not stopping Warner Bros. and CBS Films from trying it again, though.

“The Stand” is being looked at again for a motion picture adaptation, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The story is set in a post-apocalyptic setting, where a disease has wiped out humanity and a handful of survivors must band together to ward off the ultimate evil.

“The Stand” has come to life in other mediums. There was a television mini-series in the 1990s, and Marvel Comics currently is adapting King’s story into a multi-part run. But a big-screen “Stand” has yet to happen until now.

THR reports that the studios “will sit down with writers and directors in the coming weeks in an attempt to find the right take on the material,” determining first and foremost if “The Stand” should be one movie or multiple films (my bet is that they’ll milk at least two out of the book, a la “The Hobbit” or the final “Harry Potter”).

Who do you think should direct a version of “The Stand?” Whom would you like to see star in the film? Let us know in the comments section below.
