‘The Stand’ is said to be made into a feature film based on the novel written by Stephen King in 1978. Warner Bros and CBS films will co-produce the film.

’The Stand’ is all about a group of survivors, living in a large disastrous world destroyed by super virus. It was first released in the year 1978. But, it was not familiar with the one released in 1990 by the name ‘The Stand: The Complete and Uncut Edition’ with the addition of 300 pages to the novel.

The disaster is a poisonous flu known as Captain Trips, which wipes out the population of the world. The groups of survivors get together and head towards the mysterious Mother Abigail and Colorado to build the destroyed society.

’The Stand’ seems to be challenging project. The book has been adapted by Marvel as a comic series recently. Stephen King has provided the script in 1994 for a six-hour mini-series. Molly Ringwald, Ed Harris and Shawnee Smith were the cast of the series.

Warner Bros and CBS are setting for meetings with writers and the directors and are deciding to make many films from the adapted epic of over 1000 pages. George A. Romero tried to make film and failed to mould to movie screenplay.

Reportedly, CBS films has got the rights of ‘The Stand’ and released a bid to get a partner for the project. Warner Bros overtook Fox and Sony for the opportunity to develop the book.
