We cannot imagine what kind of lunacy it would entail adapting the Stephen King epic The Stand for the big screen. It would take a herculean effort on the part of a writer who's just a little bit crazy. That being said, Warner Brothers has found its lunatic!
This past July it looked like director David Yates and screenwriter Steve Kloves, the team responsible for several films in the Harry Potter franchise, would be adapting Stephen King’s novel The Stand into at least two films for Warner Bros. But then things got quiet, and Ben Affleck's name came up as a replacement. Now Yates is explaining what happened.
There's a bit of news coming in that has us all scratching our heads. Could Ben Affleck of all people be in line to direct Warner Brothers' next adaptation of the classic Stephen King tale The Stand? Read on for details.
So 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.
Since the announcement of Warner Bros. and CBS Films' intention of adapting Stephen King's epic novel The Stand for the big screen, fans have found themselves in a bit of a tizzy. There are so many questions and nowhere to look for answers. Except ...
Fan's of Stephen King's The Stand rejoice! A new theatrical feature film is on the way that will hopefully capture all of the dark and sinister stuff that the TV mini-series didn't. Hey, a guy can hope, right?
I know a lot of you out there, myself included, are eagerly looking forward to Marvel’s forthcoming comic translation of Stephen King’s The Stand, but you won’t have to wait too much longer. In fact, UGO has an exlclusive look at the first issue’s first six pages, to whet your apocalyptic appetite even more.
Personally I can’t wait to see how Marvel does with its upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s seminal apocalypse novel The Stand. Just the excuse to read it again is enough for me. AICN managed to get its hands on the first art for the book, and needless to say I’m impressed. They promise to have more tomorrow so make sure you hit ‘em up again to see the rest!
Last year’s New York Comic Con featured a great public appearance by Stephen King, a hero of mine since my younger days. I wrote all about the appearance after the show (read it here), and one of the coolest bits of news that came from it was that Marvel was discussing a comic adaptation of King’s seminal end-of-the world epic, The Stand.
When I was about 12 years old, maybe a little younger, my father was dating a woman who was really into Stephen King.
