Warner and Ben Affleck have hired David Kajganich to write the script for the upcoming big budget remake of The Stand. According to Vulture, he was chosen because they were "wowed" by an adaptation written recently by him of another King book, IT. He is also one of the writers on the remake of Pet Sematary. A multi-film adaptation of The Stand was being considered when David Yates was part of the project. No news if that's still the way they're going.
