In a brave attempt to capture all of the many scary and integral details that make a Stephen King novel as great as it is, rumor has it that Showtime is planning to release an eight-episode miniseries based on his 1978 book, The Stand.
According to The Wrap, Director Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars, Stuck in Love) will both write and direct the series leading up to a feature length film from Warner Bros. and CBS Films.
Fans of King's work may remember the 1994 TV movie series starring Molly Ringwald and Gary Sinise.
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.
The allegedly "star-studded" miniseries, The Stand, will start filming early next year.
