0

Matthew McConaughey is reportedly in talks to star in an upcoming TV adaptation of author Stephen King’s novel The Stand.

The 1978 epic will be turned into a four-film series and the Oscar winner is poised to play the chief antagonist Randall Flagg in the post-apocalyptic thriller.

The Stand chronicles the battle between good and evil after a deadly virus has killed most of the world’s population, and Flagg is the villain with supernatural powers who lives and rules in the ruins of Las Vegas.

The Stand, which was previously made into a TV mini-series in 1994, will be directed by The Fault in Our Stars‘ Josh Boone.

According to The Guardian, When Boone recently discussed the films as a guest on Kevin Smith’s podcast, he described The Stand as “The Godfather of post-apocalyptic thrillers.”
