A film adaptation of Stephen King’s seminal fantasy novel The Stand is finally happening, thanks to the diligent efforts of The Fault in Our Stars helmer Josh Boone, who won King’s approval to direct The Stand after meeting the famed author in person and striking up a friendship with him. Warner Bros. eventually handed Boone the gig, and now we’re hearing a little about the director’s ambitious plans for the film.
In an interview with Vulture, Boone talked about what he has planned for The Stand, and it’s pretty amazing.
“We’re gonna do one three-hour, R-rated version with an amazing A-list cast across the board. Every single one of those characters will be somebody you recognize and somebody you relate to. And it’s gonna be awesome. I’m really excited. It’s the most exciting thing I’ve ever got to do in my entire life. »
