The Horror Honeys: Honey Buzz ~ 'The Stand' Will Be FOUR Films...

Honey Buzz ~ 'The Stand' Will Be FOUR Films...


Talk of a big screen version of Stephen King's epic novel The Stand has been swirling for the last year at breakneck speed. Yet almost nothing has been confirmed, outside of the fact that Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars) is directing. Now, Boone has dropped a few bombshells that should keep rumor mill junkies satisfied until shooting begins, or someone gives us actual news on what's happening with this film...

Or four, as the case may be.

Director Josh Boone
Boone recently chatted with Kevin Smith on his podcast about The Stand, which he hopes to begin shooting early next year. And while he promises "mind blowing" casting, there still hasn't been any actual casting news. However, what Boone DID say was that they are breaking the cinematic adaptation of The Stand into four films. FOUR films. Four. I'm all for doing justice to the source material, but YOWZA that's a lot of movie. And it also means that we could be looking at a year between films, which means four full years worth of The Stand adaptations.

In terms of casting, the most consistent rumor at this point has been Matthew McConaughey taking on the role of big baddie Randall Flagg. 

You'll see any movie I make. It's science. 

Essentially, we still don't know much of anything. But we will be sure to keep you up to date on any casting or production news as it comes out!
