Christopher Webster [Celluloid 02.03.11] post apocalyptic movie news scifi



"I didn't know anything about the remake until I read about it on the Internet." -- Stephen King

Stephen King has weighed in the news that his popular novel The Stand will finally be seeing a movie adaptation. First off, he agrees with most of you who think one movie just won't cut it:

"You absolutely can't make it as a two-hour movie. If it was a trilogy of films ... maybe."


King also feels that there's no actor who could do better than the original miniseries lead (Gary Sinese).

"No one will be able to top Gary , who played Stu Redman in the original ABC miniseries," said King. "He was perfect. When he says 'You don't know nothing' to the soldiers who are putting him under mandatory quarantine, you believe his contempt completely."

But if Sinese ain't interested, who DOES King want to see in the role?

"My runner-up pick would be Jake Gyllenhaal."

Do you agree? If not, who SHOULD get to portray Stu Redman?
