Stephen King’s The Stand May Be TV Series And Movie

In an unprecedented move: Warner Bros, CBS Films and Josh Boone are in talks with Showtime to adapt Stephen King’s novel The Stand into an eight-part miniseries that would then lead to a big budget feature film finish. The Wrap is reporting from several sources that this ambitious plan would allow the Fault Of Our Stars director to best adapt the post-apocalyptic tome.

A similar set up was considered for another King work, The Dark Tower, but that project didn’t work out.

This will be quite the undertaking if it moves forward and you have to wonder how if at all it would effect Boone’s next project, the Fox X-Men spinoff The New Mutants.
