    Writer Hired For Ben Affleck's Adaptation Of The Stand

    Ben Affleck is hard at work finishing his next directorial effort, Argo, so that it will be ready for its September 14th release date, but that doesn't mean that he's not thinking towards the future as well. As first reported last October, Affleck has been signed by Warner Bros. to direct one of Stephen King's most popular works: The Stand. Adapted as a mini-series back in the mid-90s with Gary Sinise and Molly Ringwald, the book has never been made into a feature film, but is now in development and is moving right along. How do I know that? Because they've just hired a new writer.

    Vulture has learned that David Kajganich has been brought on board by Warner Bros. to pen the new adaptation of The Stand. While Kajganich's resume is fairly limited - his previous work includes 2009's Blood Creek with Henry Cavill and Oliver Hirschbiegel's Body Snatchers remake The Invasion - the studio is high on the writer because he recently wrote a version of Stephen King's IT that they really liked. Both projects are being produced by Roy Lee and Doug Davison, which further explains the connection. The book tells the story of a group of people trying to survive after a chemically weaponized super-flu has devastated the human population.

    Should everything go according to plan, this will easily be Affleck's biggest directing project to date and I am fascinated to see how it turns out. He's proven himself more than competent twice now, with both Gone Baby Gone and The Town, and Argo has brought together one of the best casts of 2012, including Affleck himself, Bryan Cranston, John Goodman, Alan Arkin, Kyle Chandler and many more. Cross your fingers, people!

    The Town was a pretty damn good movie. IMO Affleck has done better directing than acting.

    Yeah "The Town" was good. You just may have something there with the Affleck as a director over actor thing.

    In October of 2011, Deadline.com reported that Ben Affleck was Warner Bros. top choice to direct an adaptation of Stephen King's "The Stand." The news was somewhat shocking in those pre-"Argo" days, if only because some two months earlier, HitFix reported that "Harry Potter" director David Yates was going to take on the project. (Yates never did; instead, he's working on a "Tarzan" adaptation for the studio.)

    In January, Vulture reported that David Kajganich ("Invasion") was hired to adapt "The Stand," but precious little has been heard from the Free Zone since, but in a new interview with GQ, Affleck revealed that the film isn't near production just yet.

    "Right now we're having a very hard time," he said. "But I like the idea -- it's like 'The Lord of the Rings' in America. And it's about how we would reinvent ourselves as a society. If we started all over again, what would we do?"

    While he waits for "The Stand" to get into shape, Affleck is certainly keeping himself busy. He signed up to direct an adaptation of Dennis Lehane's novel "Live By Night" in October; that film will probably be his next feature. He's also still working on a script with Matt Damon about mobster Whitey Bulger.

    "My guess is honestly, [it'll be] the movie after next," Affleck told The Playlist about the mob movie. "I'll probably find something that's in better shape to do next until we got that one ready, and then we'll go ahead and fire that one up. [...] We're in the process writing it, the script is not ready yet, it needs a lot more work."

    I've always liked Ben Affleck. The actor, the director, the guy. The Town, for anyone that hasn't seen it, is an excellent, excellent, excellently made movie.

    I am strongly with you both on this.
    As far as The Stand re-make. I liked the made for TV movie quite a bit, but I have an open mind about the possibilities, especially if its a trilogy.

    Want a "TMSG"? I offered my extra to "Ur2ndbiggestfan", who I had thought should have one, but alas, no response. I am not looking for much in return, just a "King" item of somewhat comparable value even if just close. Nobody, to me, should have multiple copies of this stuff on these boards. Let me know what you think...

    Otherwise, since my efforts to make it a HF donation were not met with enthusiasm, I will just give it to my dear friend, Dolso.
