THE STAND is off to find a new director
With Ben Affleck or as I like to now call him The Batfleck, going to be busy for the foreseeable future with the SUPERMAN/BATMAN film, he will no longer be able to direct a new film version of THE STAND.
That is too bad, I was looking forward to seeing what his vision would be for that, but alas it was not meant to be. The film is now without a director, and the word on the street is that the director of CRAZY HEART Scott Cooper has been approached for it and is currently in talks.
I don’t mind that, THE STAND has a lot of potential, it is a very interesting piece from Stephen King. If you are a fan of the mini series, and you should be because it’s pretty entertaining, are you interested in a new take? I think it could use a fresh take, but we shall wait and see.
David Kajganich is going to write the script, his previous credits include BLOOD CREEK, a Joel Schumacher film.
We’ll bring you more as we have it ….
