So The Stand might finally be coming together. Having been bandied around hollywood like a dog eared old novel, Steven Kings sprawling epic is now officially on the way. Ben Affleck and David Yates, who helmed the last few Harry Potter instalments, had both previously been attached but now Josh Boone looks to have taken the reigns.
Nat Wolff worked with Boone on both his debut effort Stuck in Love and The Fault in Our Stars, which opens next month, and now it looks like they'll be teaming up once more. The gist of the novel, as THR describes it, is:
a story of good versus evil after a virus wipes out most of the American population. It features dozens of characters and overlapping storylines running over many years as it tells of a group of survivors fighting the Antichrist-like Randall Flagg
Boone and King are enjoying a warm bromance at the moment with the Horror writer allegedly having recieved a hand written letter from the director when Boone was just 12 years old.
