Stephen King's The Stand - Remake Takes Shape
Stephen King's The Stand was already adapted in 1994 but plans of a remake circulated around Hollywood for several years, with different writers and directors trying to get the ambitious project off the ground. Now, Josh Boone, director of The Fault in Our Stars seems to have done just that with a combination of persistence and a good script that convinced studio execs. Initially, that would have yielded one big movie but the thirst for franchises didn't leave The Stand alone. Warner Bros. asked to make 4 films out of the material which would certainly give the content more room to breathe but that idea eventually fell through. However, another alternative has been found and it sounds interesting.
According to Warner Bros' plans, a co-venture between TV and cinemas will be the result. In early 2016, a Showtime mini series consisting of 8 episodes will tell the beginnings of the story and an "R"-rated theatrical film is supposed to conclude it. Sounds intriguing but it will be interesting to see whether the combination between the two formats will win the fans over. Maybe it's not the last development in the matter.
