I wanted IT. I want THE STAND....and while weíre at it, STORM OF THE CENTURY and THE LANGOLIERS.....

This title will be released on September 24, 2019.

BluRay Thread Is Here

CBS All Access "The Stand" Splash Page

Regarding this as a theatrical, IMO it would not work, even as a multi film series. I am doubtful that 10 1 hour episodes will be enough to do it justice. Casting will obviously be crucial.

IMO the weakest link in the OG Mini was Molly Ringwald, as I thought everyone else was exceptional.

Stephen's greatest work.

It has a certain charm to it, especially with that creepy opening that uses Don't Fear the Reaper. There's also this which I always get a kick out of. Who'd thought the greatest evil ever manifested could have such a soothing voice.

Marilyn Manson has recorded a cover of This is the End by The Doors and will appear in the series in an as yet undisclosed roll.

As a Doors fan, I am insulted.
As an "intriguing acting choices" fan, I am intrigued.
You don't suppose they would give him Trashy, do you?

Manson has done a lot of great covers over the years so I don't doubt his ability to pull off a decent version of The End (I'm a big Doors fan too so can understand your hesitancy).

Trash Man seems to be the rumour doing the rounds on a few web sites; I've seen Manson act in a few different roles and he has the chops required. Though I would enjoy it more if they went against expectations and cast him in one of the Mother Abigail's followers roles.

There's no way they cast him as Larry. They wouldn't cast him as Tom

Hmmmm.

Maybe as the harbinger that Kareem played in the mini series.
If they incorporate "The Kid" back into the story, I could him in that role.

To completely flip it, him as Brad Kitchener, the tech guy that gets the power up in Boulder, would be fun.

Stephen King to write the final episode. He will also provide a new coda that didn’t exist in his 1978 novel

Oh that always makes me nervous, just leave it alone, with the novels original "This Isn't Over" ending.

Whoopi as Mother Abigail?

I’m nervous. I love King, but I am more often than not let down by his endings.

It's been upgraded to a continuation.....

Quote:
“For fans of the book who have wondered what became of the survivors of the stand, this episode will contain a story that takes us beyond the book to answer those questions,” CBS All Access EVP Julie McNamara said. “A continuation to The Stand; we can’t wait to share that with the world.”...........

The prolific horror author had lamented in interviews that he wasn’t quite happy with the ending of the book, so he likely sparked to the idea of writing a new one.

I hear the new material will pick up right after the events in the novel. The script is still being written but I hear the followup will be a substantial part of the final episode, not a brief epilogue at the end.

This makes me very nervous.

Some of the casting news is good but man I just can't get excited about this and The Stand is one of my all time favorite books.

Can't get worked up over this. The casting seems to lack any heavy hitters.
