    Denis Leary as the Walkin’ Dude. End of story!

    Kevin Dillon as Larry Underwood. My dog should get the part of Kojak the dog. I named him after the dog in the book. Interestingly, Gary Sinise once stood two feet from where I’m standing. He stayed at this hotel and checked-in on the other side of this counter. ………..another constant reader / moviebuff :)

    Something tells me that good ol’ Stephen isn’t hurting for cash. Every book he has ever written has gone to number 1 on the best seller list. Me think he has plenty of scratch. His estimated net worth is $500,000,000.

    The Stand is my all time favorite book. I’ve read it about 3 times, the first being a senior in high school in ’82. I love King’s earlier writings, not so much the latter ones after 1991 except for Storm of the Century and DreamCatcher and a few others. My next favorite of his was The Mist. I always loved, loved that short story, too bad the movie didn’t do it justice. I’m excited they are doing a remake of The Stand, let’s just hope they cast it better this time. Most everyone was miscast in that movie, especially Molly and Laura SanGiamaco as Nadine. Please, better actors for this movie!!! Although I have watched it at least 10+ times since it was released.

    As a store manager of a Popeyes in Texas, I just gotta give a hypothetical high five to the King, and there’s a three-piece combo one the house in Longview for him, even if the Stand tanks. Hail to the King, baby!

    anyone who would even attempt to make the stand into a movie is an idiot after the series there is too much character growth and back story of the characters to even fit in a james cameron mega movie will he do a good job with what he has to work with I don’t doubt but will it be worth the cost of admission not gonna happen

    Frankly, if a studio decides to make The Stand into a movie, no amount of “fan outrage” is going to stop it from being made. So, please, get off your soap boxes! That being said, I can say the same thing I’ve said in the face of other possible remakes.
    IF THEY TAKE THE BOOK/MOVIE SERIOUSLY, THEN IT HAS POTENTIAL. What do I mean by seriously? I mean having the screenwriter actually read the ENTIRE SERIES…not just one book at a freaking time. I mean having Stephen King as a helping hand in the production. (I know he can’t choose the entire cast or direct the movie, but at least have him on the set to explain the characters!) Also, lose the CGI.
    I’m sick of seeing all this crappy overpriced, overhyped CGI. It’s pointless. The audience knows it’s fake!

    When I was younger about 2 my mother had a chance to meet him in person at a book signing. I was sick, and no one would baby sit me. My mother missed her chance, and still hasn’t met him. She loves him as a author. I love him as a author as well. His books have always been in my house growing up, and ever weekend was Movie night mostly it consisted of his movies. I was told as a child that his books were always better then his movies since other people mostly made them. Since i was about 5-10 years old I would just watch the movies till middle school. It truly sucks how this Author isn’t taken seriously he is a legend. It’s shame when a chick writing about a no back bone girl who needs her vampire boyfriend around or she tries to kill herself gets more respect then a man who has written more amazing books and doesn’t get the respect he deserves.

    Ok, bear with me.. Jim Parsons as Trashcan Man, Jon Hamm as Randall Flagg, and Vincent from Lost as Kojak

    • Chris

      Oh, and please retain “Don’t Fear the Reaper” by Blue Oyster Cult, if ever a piece of music fit a book/miniseries better…..

    Are some of you guys illiterate? Do you not read up on things when your curious? The Stand was WAS Stephen King’s Lord of the Rings. He wanted it to just set it up different. Flagg was Sauron and Mother Abigail was Gandalf. King said it himself. And the uncut edition was not BLOATED, it was informative. Look before you type.

    My thoughts exactly, Mr. King!! Especially concerning Molly Ringwald and Gary Sinise. The only problem with the original miniseries is some of its 90’s elements (FX, jokes, etc.) are a bit dated and cheesy now, but it still can’t be topped. I’ll forever see Gary Sinise in the role when I’m reading the book, and no new adaptation will change that.
