Ben Affleck To Direct WB’s New ‘The Stand’ Film

Previously it had been reported that Harry Potter wonder team David Yates and Steven Kloves were going to adapt Stephen King’s The Stand into a trilogy or succession of films, well that’s been put to dust with the news that none other than BEN AFFLECK will be helming the film.

That’s not a bad thing as AFFLECK has more than proven what a capable director he is after the stunning GONE BABY GONE and equally impressive THE TOWN, he’s certainly becoming a modern day Clint Eastwood in his style. This collateral alone makes him more than apt at tackling King’s best novel.
