For those who fondly remember seeing the likes of Gary Sinise, Rob Lowe, Molly Ringwald and the Trashcan Man himself Matt Frewer in action in 1994’s TV mini-series adaption of the classic Stephen King novel ‘The Stand’ will be glad to know that it’s about to finally get the big screen treatment. Both Warner Bros and CBS Films have come together and decided to readapt it for movie-goers but are still unsure as to whether they should condense it to a single release of spread it out over a number of installments. Check out the book synopsis below.
“The book, set in 1991, is based around a plague that strikes America, leaving only a few thousand people alive who are ‘immune’ to the epidemic. Of the survivors, those who serve G-d instinctively join in Boulder, Colorado, while those who worship the “Dark Man” are drawn to Las Vegas,Nevada. The two groups separately re-build society, until one must destroy the other.”
