A whopping 9 months back we let you guys know that The New Mutants writer-director Josh Boone was setting his sights on a 10-hour Limited Series adaptation of Stephen King’s The Stand.
And today we have confirmation that the Limited Series is moving forward as Boone just took to Instagram to let us all know the writer’s room has been assembled.
And if that wasn’t cool enough, he also let us know that none other than King’s son Owen King will be one of the writers. Also joining in on the fun will be Benjamin Cavell (Justified) and Jill Killington (The Blackout Experiments) who used to co-host Dread Central Live along with our very own Steve Barton.
You can check out Boone’s post below. We’ll let you know when we hear more!
A horrifically plague-ravaged Earth where a fraction of its population survives, compelling them to choose sides between the overwhelming forces of good and evil. Millions perish, and as small, isolated frightened bands unite, the answers to their perpetual questions to justify this end of civilization are bared in their dreams – revelations that urge some to embrace a path of virtue and others to gravitate towards a sinister course of darkness. As the opposing forces separate into two camps – one led by the saintly Mother Abigail and the other demonic Randall Flagg – the noble elements try to shield themselves from their corrupt enemy, whose ruthless potency is increased by their domination of an excavated nuclear warhead. Their extreme clash of wills makes it inevitable that these remnants of humanity will soon engage in a final confrontation – The Stand – an immense and atrocious battle which could result in annihilating the power of good and hurdle the fate of the planet into the reins of evil.
