After years in development hell, it looks like an adaptation of Stephen King’s The Stand is finally moving forward, says THR.
The Fault in Our Stars‘ Nat Wolff, pictured, is reteaming with director Josh Boone on The Stand.
Boone is attached to direct the adaptation of Stephen King’s epic novel, which is being made by Warner Bros. and CBS Films.
The Stand is a story of good versus evil after a virus wipes out most of the American population. It features dozens of characters (including such memorable ones as the Trashcan Man and Mother Abigail) and overlapping storylines running over many years as it tells of a group of survivors fighting the Antichrist-like Randall Flagg.
“The Stand” has cycled through several directors over the years, with Scott Cooper most recently on board to direct (as well as write) before leaving the project in November. Before that, Ben Affleck and David Yates were attached as directors.
