Stephen King’s iconic epic ‘The Stand’ is set to return to television in the form of yet another miniseries, this time under the control of Josh Boone (The New Mutants) and Benjamin Cavell (SEAL Team). The story, now all too timely, follows two opposing factions of survivors after a devastating plague.
The remake will feature James Marsden, Whoopi Goldberg, Alexander Skarsgård, Odessa Young, Nat Wolff, Amber Heard and more as various figures in the battle between good and evil. The original miniseries aired in 1994 with stars like Gary Sinise, Molly Ringwald, and Ruby Dee.
Check out the exciting trailer below, which shows off the new stylistic choices for the show with plenty of famous faces in store. ‘The Stand’ will premiere exclusively on CBS All Access on December 17th.
