CBS All Access‘ new series adaptation is headed your way this winter from director Josh Boone (The New Mutants). Today, we’ve got a new trailer that reveals a world divided between good and evil.
The 9-episode series adaptation of Stephen King‘s classic tale will air weekly and will feature a new ending written by the master of horror himself specifically for the series.
The tale finds people in a world decimated by a plague where they stuck in the middle of a battle between good and evil. The fate of mankind hangs in the balance and rests on the shoulders of Mother Abigail, who is 108 years old, along with a handful of survivors who must face off against Randall Flagg, humanity’s worst nightmare.
Alexander Skarsgård stars as Randall Flagg with Whoopi Goldberg playing the role of Mother Abagail. The cast also includes Jovan Adepo, Owen Teague, Greg Kinnear, Brad William Henke, Nat Wolff, Daniel Sunjata, Heather Graham, James Marsden, Odessa Young, Amber Heard, Eion Bailey, Katherine McNamara, Hamish Linklater, and Henry Zaga, along with rocker/actor Marilyn Manson.
