David Kajganich to pen The Stand?Posted: January 19, 2012, 09:11:39
This was reported by New York Magazine today:
Meanwhile, just as Damon survived a global influenza pandemic last year in Contagion, his Pearl Street partner Ben Affleck is making progress on his own viral blockbuster: Stephen King’s The Stand, about survivors of a chemically weaponized super-flu. We hear that Affleck has hired screenwriter David Kajganich to pen the script after Kajganich wowed Warner Bros. with another recent King adaptation of the 1986 horror classic It – which, like The Stand, is being produced by Roy Lee and Doug Davison. Let's hope this goes better than the last produced outbreak drama Kadjanich wrote for WB: 2007's underperforming Nicole Kidman vehicle The Invasion.
