Stephen King

The Stand: Stephen King dropped a hint about the upcoming film adaptation of his massive 1978 novel The Stand, to be written and directed by Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars). A few months ago, Boone said he would be making "one three-hour, R-rated version." King said he thinks Boone's take is "terrific" and then added: "Don’t count on it being one film. … There’s talk about doing it in an entirely different and innovative way." He declined to say anything more, but he certainly raised the anticipation level for fans of his book. []
