That story won't fit into a single movie not even at a bladder punishing 3+ hours. This movie can still suck mightily depending on the rest of the cast and the script. For the love of the Crimson King PLEASE fix the ending too.

This- HBO or AMC should make a mini series. A movie will demand far too much material be cut.

Five years ago I would have thought "Meh. Let's see what he can do, maybe the smarm-charm he oozes in all those rom-coms will naturally transition to the charm of our evil."

Now, I think casting him as the Walking Dude would be an instant *shut up and take my money*, even if the rest of the film looks horrendous.

Just, please, may the Turtle spare us from any more Oscar speeches from Wooderson.

As cheesy as the TV miniseries was the casting was mostly dead on.
 
2014-08-23 03:08:07 PM  
"The Stand" is crap, one of King's most bloated messes that makes bloated "It" seem like a haiku.  All magical negroes and joyless lesbians and white trash heroes.  The book was a chore.  The miniseries was cheap trash.

McConaughy would be better as the Gunslinger.

Speaking of Laura San Giacomo, she was also extremely alluring* in 'Sex, Lies, and Videotape'

It was still on netflix about a month ago. I hadnt seen it since the original run 20 years ago and wow was the quality awful. I could only get through the first part.

McConaughey is actually kind of perfect for Flagg.

Also, The Stand would be an OK trilogy.  I liked the mini-series.  I'd love to see it in a post-Sopranos/Mad Man/Game of Thrones/Walking Dead style.  It's got sort of a similar structure where things happen, and there's not necessarily any one single plot thread running through it.

CSB, my college roommates pretty much ed banned me from watching The Stand or Quigley Down Under when under the influence because all I would do is make non-stop inappropriate comments about her breasts and all the things I would do with them and her if I was let within arm's reach. You could say they were early pioneers of the new Fark guidelines, with shiattier taste in beer and bourbon.

It was written by Stephen King for one thing. Seriously ? You were cool with the hand of god thing ? Most of his books end as if he lost track of time and realizes that the book is due in the next few hours and just pulls the last 5 or 10 pages out of his ass in 20 minutes. Except for Cell where he must have gone to take a dump and his wife just mailed it in before he could even try that.

The novella versions of Apt Pupil and The Mist don't even HAVE endings compared to the movies.

Flagg is supposed to have some kind of pull on you that you find it hard to look away from, yet terrify you the whole time. I could see Matt pulling this off. Super charismatic, yet a maniacal gleam. This sounds like a good choice to me.
