Stephen King‘s The Stand Reboot has had many issues like Ben Affleck and Scott Cooper passing on the project. Josh Boone is now the current director and has revealed his plans for The Stand Reboot. Boone will rewrite the the script and make one film that is 3 hours long which may still be too short for a movie adaptation on a book whose uncut version is over 1000 pages. This horror movie will be a R-rated movie so expect this film to be wild!
We’re gonna do one three-hour, R-rated version with an amazing A-list cast across the board. Every single one of those characters will be somebody you recognize and somebody you relate to. And it’s gonna be awesome. I’m really excited. It’s the most exciting thing I’ve ever got to do in my entire life. If 12-year-old me had ever known that one day I’d be doing this, to even just go back and look at that kid, I’d be like, Keep doing what you’re doing! It’s just crazy. I’ve met so many actors over the years, and like, when I met Stephen King, I hugged him with tears in my eyes. He meant that much to me when I was young. I still say everything I learned about writing I learned from Stephen King. I don’t read screenplays. I don’t read screenplay how-to books. It’s always just, establish the character. Establish the character.
