Re: The Stand

Going from the story in The Hollywood Reporter a completed film (if it happens) would be some way off. There's nothing on the official SK page.

Having seen the mini-series I think The Stand can be done in a single movie if the script is disciplined and they get the casting right. For although it is a big book the original edition showed that the same story could be contained. Even the original had a lot of backstory that can be sacrificed.

That said, the failure at Project Blue (which didn't make the original book) should be included.

I'm also curious as to how WB/CBS intend to release this because the next few years may be dominated by the behemoth of The Dark Tower movie and TV cross-over due for release in 2013.
