Stephen King’s The Stand heads to the cinema

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Stephen King’s The Stand is finally getting the big-screen treatment. A film adaption of the widely popular, post-apocalyptic novel has been in various stages of development for years, and the book has already been adapted as a miniseries [featured video] and a Marvel comic book.

The miniseries featured a decent cast: Gary Sinise, Molly Ringwald, Rob Lowe, Jamey Sheridan, and with a 6-hour running time it stayed fairly faithful, albeit toned-down for TV, to the sprawling, epic source material. A film adaptation will have to unfold across multiple films or be highly condensed. The project will take a strong cast, a top-notch scriptwriter, and a masterful director at the helm — maybe seasoned Stephen-King-adapter Frank Darabont will throw his hat into the ring.
