Warner Bros. Makes Black Friday Shopping List For ‘The Stand’ Director

Now that Scott Cooper isn’t adapting Stephen King’s “The Stand” for Warner Bros. (there was a rift reported here), the studio is once again on the hunt for a director.

BadAssDigest reports that Paul Greengrass (The Bourne Supremacy, The Bourne Ultimatum, United 93, Captain Phillips ) is atop of Warner Bros.’ Black Friday wishlist. Heat Vision already shared his name as a possible, along with Cary Fukunaga, Daniel Espinosa and Denis Villeneuve.

Again, everyone is keen on reporting names before offers have been made, but BAD is as legit as they come.

The 1978 “The Stand” is a story of good vs. evil after a virus wipes out most of the American population. While it features dozens of characters (such as the Trashcan Man and Mother Abigail) and overlapping story lines running over many years, the struggle boils down to a group of survivors fighting the Antichrist-like Randall Flagg.

    The Stand doesn’t take place over “many years,” just seven months.

    And please no to Paul Greengrass. We don’t need anymore shaky cam.
