Stephen King adaptations are hot once again, with Heat Vision reporting that Warner Bros. and CBS films are looking to bring The Stand to the big screen:

"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.

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 Stand is one of my favorite books of all time, and while it was interesting to see the mini-series in the 90's, I'm sure everyone who has read the book knows that it can be done much better. With The Dark Tower moving forward and the possibility of The Stand, it is shaping up to be a good decade for King fans.
