Stephen King

The Stand: Stephen King dropped a hint about the upcoming film adaptation of his massive 1978 novel The Stand, to be written and directed by Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars). A few months ago, Boone said he would be making "one three-hour, R-rated version." King said he thinks Boone's take is "terrific" and then added: "Don’t count on it being one film….There’s talk about doing it in an entirely different and innovative way." He declined to say anything more, but he certainly raised the anticipation level for fans of his book. [MTV.com]
