    First, I'd have to ask "Why not just do the whole thing on Showtime?"

    But otherwise

    WIsh it was HBO because Showtime is pretty wishy washy. But :up:

    Well, Penny Dreadful and Homeland are pretty great and Dexter was good for a while. I think this will be pretty good.


    Also, Timothy Olyphant for Stu.

    The only real problem I have with Showtime is that they keep so much of their s*** past their rightful expiration dates. Since this is meant to be a miniseries leading into a movie (though that seems risky in it's own right), I don't think that will be a problem.

    Josh Boone On The Stand

    Section: Film » The Stand
    Josh Boone just posted this on King's board.

    Hi, Josh Boone here. I happened to come across this and wanted to say that I never wrote a draft of The Stand with anything but the ending from the book. You are referring to a draft that preceded me, which I actively worked to ensure never got made because it was in no way an adaptation of the book, just fan fiction. I am still working on The Stand and will be making it next as soon as New Mutants opens in April as a limited series. I've been working on it for four years and I promise you it will be a faithful adaptation of the book with an incredible cast.

    I'm not sure if this is true or not, since it originates from the same Tracking Board article where they said some stuff about New Mutants that they said they got from anonymous sources.

    If it is true, well, a longer runtime (in comparison to doing 1 or 2 movies, not Showtime) is better. Hopefully it would go better than the previous The Stand, or Stephen King's network tv adaptations in general.

    If true, I'm glad they're not going the film route, because you can't do it justice in just one and I don't think it would benefit from the multi-film approach, but I do wish it was happening on HBO or Netflix.

    Welp, looks like it might actually be happening. A 10-hour series makes the most sense all things considered, but there is still part of me that wishes a film trilogy had been made. I'm concerned about it being on CBS, though. It needs the budget and rating to really do the book justice, lest we end up with an updated version of the 90's miniseries.

    Damn King products are really taking off these last few years with It, Gerald's game, 1922, Castle Rock and then you got Pet Sementary next year and now this.

    God ****ing dammit, now I gotta subscribe.

    Glad they're going episodic, though. One movie wouldn't do any good and I don't think the story lends itself to a Part One/Part Two movie treatment.

    Gotta hand it to Josh Boone, he's been trying to get this off the ground for over five years now. I just hope CBS All-Access will allow him the budget and the rating to do it justice.

    If it was CBS proper, I'd be worried. But All Access managed to lure in Jordan Peele after Get Out made him white hot. I think we're good.

    Someone on Instagram asked him about the rating and he said it's "R-rated, HBO level" stuff.

    Cool for Owen to be involved. Sleeping Beauties is one book I've been meaning to get around to.

    Really curious to see what kind of talent they can wrangle on the casting side of things. Rooney Mara has been my ideal Nadine Cross for awhile, but who knows if CBS All Access could pull that off.

    Maybe they could get Claire Danes.

    I think Buster Scruggs’ Bill Heck could be a good and feasible Stu Redman.
