Warner Bros. och CBS Films har tagit sig an att göra film av Stephen Kings bok "The Stand". Men då boken är så pass omfattande så är frågan om det handlar om flera filmer. Nåväl, de sitter ner nu för att klura ut ett passande manus för filmen/filmerna.

Stephen King har hamnat i ropet efter "The Dark Tower" tror jag. thumbsup.gif

 

Stephen King's 'The Stand' Heading to the Big Screen (Exclusive)

1/31/2011

Stephen King's grand opus The Stand is finally getting the big-screen treatment.

Warner Bros. and CBS Films are teaming to adapt the novel, which in many ways set the bar for a generation of post-apocalyptic stories and influenced works ranging from TV's Lost to music group Anthrax.

Mosaic and Roy Lee are producing.

The companies will co-develop and co-produce the feature film, with CBS having the option to participate in co-financing. Warners will handle worldwide marketing and distribution.

The studios and producers will sit down with writers and directors in the coming weeks in an attempt to find the right take on the material. One thing to be determined is whether to attempt the adaptation in one or multiple movies. King will be involved in some capacity.

CBS has held the rights for many years but recently realized the best way to undertake the project was with a partner. Warners beat out Fox and Sony in a tight bidding war for the gig, getting its hands on one of the biggest-selling books of all time.

CBS, meanwhile, gets a chance to be involved in an ambitious big-budget tentpole with little downside. The company just released its fourth movie, The Mechanic, which performed better than expected this weekend with an opening of $11.4 million.

The Stand is a story of good vs. evil after a virus wipes out most of the American population. While it features dozens of characters (such as the Trashcan Man and Mother Abigail) and overlapping story lines running over many years, the struggle boils down to a group of survivors fighting the Antichrist-like Randall Flagg.

The novel was originally published in 1978, but by the time it was rereleased in 1990 with King adding and revising portions of the story, it had achieved cult-like status.

George Romero and Warners separately tried in vain to launch a movie adaptation in the 1980s, and a tone-downed version was produced as a six-hour miniseries by ABC in 1994. In recent years, Marvel Comics has been adapting the story to great acclaim.

King's stories made for popular Hollywood adaptations in the 1980s and '90s, but that love seemed to lose steam in the past decade. But with Universal mounting an ambitious take on The Dark Tower, and now The Stand, King may be getting ready to return to the throne as the novelist the town loves the most.

Enstaka exemplar kan hittas också på Tv-land, men de brukar snabbt bli förvirrade och skynda sig tillbaka till Sci-Fi Nytt.

...jag förberedde mig på det värsta: dvs ett episkt prettodrama som Wylie och Synon antagligen skulle sucka nöjt över.

Trilogi verkar trolig enligt artikeln

When The Stand hits the big screen, you can thank Harry Potter | Blastr

Harry Potter is one of Hollywood's most successful movie series, earning Warner Bros. critical acclaim and seven and a half billion dollars. Now the studio wants to do it all over again—this time with Stephen King's The Stand. And Harry Potter will be a big part of it.

Specifically, Warner Bros. wants to put Harry Potter screenwriter, Steve Kloves, and director of the last four movies, David Yates, on the job.

According to HitFlix, "Warner Bros. is in the process of finalizing the deals for David Yates and Steve Kloves to re-team for a multi-movie version of Stephen King's epic The Stand."

Obviously, Warner Bros. is confident in Kloves' ability to adapt pop culture for the screen and Yates' prowess with maintaining a film's tone over years of work. In other words ... they want these geese to keep laying golden eggs.

The Stand is about the survivors of a military-created biological weapon, as well as a struggle between good and evil. It was written in 1978, revised in 1990 and turned into a made-for-TV miniseries in 1994.

We don't know how many movies The Stand will become, but a trilogy makes sense considering the book is split into three major sections.

The news of a movie series of The Stand almost (but not quite) makes up for the loss of The Dark Tower, which would not only have become multiple movies but also continued as a television series. (Universal Studios heartbreakingly cancelled the project over budget issues.)
