Casting has officially begun on Warner Bros.’ adaptation of Stephen King’s The Stand as THR is reporting that The Fault in Our Stars actor Nat Wolff is reteaming with director Josh Boone for the long talked about project.
Boone is attached to direct the adaptation of Stephen King’s epic novel, which is being made by Warner Bros. and CBS Films. He tells THR that he’s writing a part specifically for Wolff, making this the third project the duo will have worked on together.
The Stand has cycled through several directors over the years, with Scott Cooper most recently on board to direct (as well as write) before leaving the project in November. Before that, Ben Affleck and David Yates were attached as directors.
The Stand, which is being produced by Jimmy Miller and Roy Lee, is a story of good versus evil after a virus wipes out most of the American population. It features dozens of characters (including such memorable ones as the Trashcan Man and Mother Abigail) and overlapping storylines running over many years as it tells of a group of survivors fighting the Antichrist-like Randall Flagg.
King, who now has a strong relationship with Boone after receiving a moving letter from him at 12 years old, recently also gave Boone permission to adapt Lisey’s Story.
