Print this article The internet has been abuzz ever since it was announced that Warner Bros. is putting their nose to the grindstone on a reboot of "The Stand," the bestselling 1978 novel by Stephen King. The original 8-part miniseries adapted from the book aired on ABC in 1994.
King took a few moments to share his thoughts in Entertainment Weekly about the pending project.
"The movie studios blow the budget on things like this, so maybe it'll be fun to look at," he wrote in the news source.
"The Stand" wouldn't be the first big-screen adaptation of King's work. The 1976 thriller "Carrie" wound up making a name for actress Sissy Spacek while Jack Nicholson earned rave reviews for his performance in "The Shining."
Still, it appears as though the masterminds behind this latest Hollywood endeavor did not consult with King about their decision.
"I didn't know anything about the remake until I read about it on the internet," he wrote in the news outlet.
