The StandSo with Harry Potter coming to an end, Warner Brothers is looking to secure itself a brand new franchise to turn into a yearly cash cow … and man, do they have some kickin’ source material to choose from.

According to New York Magazine’s Vulture, the studio’s top priority is a multi-picture adaptation of Stephen King’s The Stand. The sources relate to them that Potter director David Yates is flying into town tomorrow and has been re-reading King’s epic-length supernatural classic.

Once there Yates will decide if he wants to do the film sometime in the next two weeks. It is a big commitment as the studio wants to split the giant book into three parts.

Look for more on this one as it comes.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    David Yates? Is he the guy who controversially chops out important bits from really long books, or is that one of the other ‘Potter’ directors?

    If the former… well, Hollywood’s just deliberately fuckin’ with us all now.

    Yates is a fantastic director! Give it to him!
