Default The Stand (reboot)

I really thought there would be a thread for this but I searched and found nothing.
Looks like a Stand reboot is in the works, been talked about for a long time...

I have no idea how they're going to cram that story into a 2 or 3 hour feature. I found the mini-series wasn't long enough. I LOVE The Stand (book and tv series) but have very little hope in this being done well

Maybe they'll break it down into a trilogy. Books are hard to beat.

Agreed, the book is my all-time favorite. I also really enjoyed the series, it was a bit miscast here and there but overall it was about as good as could be expected from a network mini-series.

I adore the Stand, the book and the TV series, more than anything. I'm really of the opinion that it should be left alone, and this has so much potential to bring a phenomenal classic to light to a new generation and absolutely fuck it up. If this isn't perfectly executed, I have to feel like an ass telling people it's my favorite novel. I'm extremely opinionated and protective of it and my opinion happens to be that they should have made me creative director or fucked off.

There's potential it will be my new favorite thing, though. If they do it well I'll go apeshit on the nerd tip about it. But if they cast fucking Megan Fox as Frannie or Brad Pitt as Harold or something equally stupid there is a good chance I am going to go to prison for a very long time.

I don't remember seeing the mini-series at all, so I welcome a film version.

The book was one of my all time favorites from King and therefore i was actually dissapointed with the miniseries. I felt it was so bad that it would keep people from reading the stunning book. So i for one am looking forward to a reboot, if it goes well, maybe more people will get into the book, if it goes bad then no harm no foul since i already disliked the miniseries....
