“This is the end, beautiful friend…”
It’s been almost six months since we first got wind of a new adaptation of Stephen King’s The Stand, in the works at CBS All. THR previously reported:
Stephen King’s post-apocalyptic epic best-seller The Stand is coming to CBS All Access. Following a prolonged deal making process, the SVOD platform on Wednesday announced a straight-to-series, 10-episode order for a drama based on the novel of the same name. Josh Boone, who was previously attached to write a feature film based on the epic novel, is set to pen the script alongside Ben Cavell (Justified, Homeland). The Stand has long been a passion project for [Josh] Boone.
Now, we’re getting word that shock-rocker Marilyn Manson has recorded new music for the upcoming reboot–and that he even has a role in the miniseries. This time, the news came our way via Revolver:
Manson: “Shooter [Jennings] and I did a cover of ‘The End’ by the Doors, for a new miniseries of The Stand by Stephen King, which I’m also going to be acting in.”
You can check out Manson crooning another famous cover below.
