Ben Affleck in line to direct Stephen King's The StandBen Affleck in line to direct Stephen King’s The Stand, Deadline is reporting that Ben Affleck will direct the film adaptation of Stephen King’s epic novel The Stand. Warner Brothers, which owns the rights to the novel, love and Affleck are currently in the process of production of his third film as director, Argo.

Harry Potter director David Yates was originally signed to direct the project, but seems to have failed to lead Tom Hardy in the biography of Al Capone, Cicero.

It is assumed that the position will be the next project after Argo Affleck address, but that is not safe. He has already signed on to direct an adaptation of the novel by Harlan Coben mystery Tell No One, who is also from Warner Bros. and it is unclear whether it will come before or after The Stand.

In addition, in late August, Affleck is in talks to star in and direct another Warner Brothers project, a military action thriller called Line of Sight. Finally, it also has a passion project on human rights abuse has been trying to get funding.

Affleck now has a lot on his plate and I’m anxious to see everything. I think it’s a wonderful director. It is obvious that Warner Bros. are strong advocates of it and seem to be creating a very strong relationship that will lead to some fantastic films.

So while not 100% sure that the stand will fit your schedule, if Affleck is directing, is likely to see a version of 2014.
