Let’s hope it is smoother than IT.

Warner Brothers Pictures is going strong with its plans for the latest King adaptation as they reveal their plans for the adaptation of The Stand.

Allegedly, the current plan is to, in an unprecedented move, begin the story on television. An eight-part Showtime miniseries, written and directed by Josh Boone, is being eyed, which would set up the story and its characters to culminate in Boone’s feature film.

Here’s a quick rundown of the plot:

The Stand tells the story of a “full-scale apocalypse, driven by the accidental release of a biological weapon and the ensuing struggle of good versus evil carried out by the world’s final survivors.”


What do you think of the move? Do you think this will work?
