We’re not kidding when we say that are many Stephen King adaptations in the works, but we’re here to talk one specific project, CBS’s “The Stand” series adaptation from Josh Boone (The New Mutants).
Originally, Boone, had a four-film franchise planned, instead, we’ll see ten one-hour episodes. This will make the second tv version of King’s “The Stand”. The first aired back in 1994 and was directed by Mick Garris.
Tracking Board reported that, “Boone has a full plate once he wraps New Mutants.He’s still attached to direct an adaptation of Stephen King’s The Stand, which we hear is coming together as a ten-hour limited series at CBS All Access.
In King’s 1978 novel, “After a deadly plague kills most of the world’s population, the remaining survivors split into two groups – one led by a benevolent elder and the other by a maleficent being – to face each other in a final battle between good and evil.”
