After years of sitting in development and going through various creative hands, Stephen King’s The Stand is finally being brought to the big screen via The Fault in our Stars director Josh Boone.

Recently, while talking to Kevin Smith on his Hollywood Babble-On podcast, Boone revealed that he has made a deal with Warner Bros. to adapt King’s 1978 novel into not one, but four different films.

“I think we’re going to do four movies. Do The Stand at the highest level you can do it at, with a cast that’s going to blow peoples’ minds,” Boone said. 

Boone also said that originally it was pitched as a single, three-hour film, but the financials didn’t quite work out so the the studio proposed doing it as four separate films and he agreed. Boone also expressed that he has been a life long fan of King’s and that this is a childhood dream for him.

The last time The Stand was adapted was in a TV miniseries back in 1994. The adaption was relatively well received, but fans of the novel and other creative minds feel that it can be done better. Prior to Boone, Ben Affleck was attached to the project.

The Stand is often listed not only as one of King’s finest works, but as one of the greatest novels ever written. However, the scope of the novel has proved to be a challenge in prior attempts at a big screen adaptation. Spreading it out over multiple films should be helpful.

Boone has already proven he can make a beloved book adaption work. The Fault in our Stars grossed more than $300 million at the global box office and currently holds an 80% approval rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes. 

According to Boone the film will start shooting next year with an as of yet unspecified release date.
