The Stand Lands Screenwriter David Kajganich

ON

A new report from Vulture says that the Warner Bros. adaptation of Stephen King’s The Stand has landed screenwriter David Kajganich.

Kajganich (The Invasion, Blood Creek) also worked on an as-of-yet unproduced adaptation of King’s It, which is likely what brought him to director Ben Affleck’s attention.

Previously adapted as a television miniseries in 1994, “The Stand” tells the story of a full-scale apocalypse, driven by the accidental release of a biological weapon and the ensuing struggle of good versus evil carried out by the world’s final survivors.
