Stephen King’s 1978 novel, The Stand is one epic tome, clocking-in at a massive 823 pages. The book was already adapted into a rather good TV mini-series by Mike Garris in 1994, but now it’s getting a 2020 update.
This looks remarkably similar to Garris’ version of King’s post-apocalyptic tale – maybe a little slicker, but not by much. This time around the cast includes Whoopi Goldberg, Alexander Skarsgård, James Marsden, Odessa Young and Jovan Adepo.
Movies In Focus might just stick with Mick Garris’ effort – check out a review of that here.
