Would anyone watch a remake? Who would you cast in the roles?

If they did remake it, I hope they'd make the series even more detailed. I bet they could even make a tv show out of it. I mean, we have "lost", we could get hooked on the Stand. They'd just have to put a deadline on the show so it wouldn't get lost in the story or the writers wouldn't end up stalling just to get more ratings. It would be nice to have a bigger budget too, cause there are moments in the miniseries that you can tell the budget was streteched thin. I could see this show on ABC, but I think it would be even better on F/X or Showtime.

I think it would be hard to recreate this movie. I mean, who else could be Stu Redman than Gary Sinise? He was amazing, not to mention hot! Ruby Dee was powerful as Mother Abigal...and who can top Ray Walston or Adam Storke or Rob Lowe? I'd be happy with a new Frannie, since Molly Ringwald skated through the film. Otherwise, I wouldn't want any network to remake this.

Hi all. I'm new here. I read the original novel when I was 14, and have reread it at least once every other year. I'm currently 1/3 of the way through this time due to joining a "After The Stand" roleplaying community on livejournal.

I have noticed that when I read the book, I tend to get a cold. LOL. And I'm not the only one. Not only others in my family, but people I've just met who I see reading it. I've asked "Have you gotten a cold while you read that?" And most of them say they have.

I think it's psychosomatic... or the printer sprays the pages with cold germs. LOL.

*is happy*
I see at least one other group on LJ but it's kinda inactive. I first watched the film to bone up for a crossover RPG with Highlander that I was in at the time, then read the book. Now I'm enamored lol. I just rewatched the miniseries after renting it last night but I sooo want to get my own copy. I already have the complete uncut book.

Hey, anyone here from Thestand Yahoogroup? I've been full of comments and rambles there lately hehe.

I must say that when I found this community, about 5 minutes ago, I thought there'd be more members! We need to advertise more! Anyways, I joined up because The Stand is my favorite S.K. novel. I have read it at least 30 times since I first read it in 1999, as a freshman in high school. And now I'm a senior in college. That's crazy! Anyways, since I will begin my winter break on Thursday, I'm planning on re-reading The Stand yet again. :-)

This is the way the world ends...well, according to Stephen King
Greetings all! I started this community so folks could chat only about Stephen King's THE STAND. If you want to talk about IT or NEEDFUL THINGS or THE SHINING, there are other places for that. This is a place to chat about the book, the author, the film, the actors, whatevah! So feel free to post.

Here's an opening question...how long have you been a fan of the movie/book?

I first read the book in the early 90's after the miniseries first premiered. I didn't watch it then, since Stephen King was supposed to be uber scary. Then the following summer I just picked up THE STAND and decided I was going to read it - what the hell. I've been a huge fan ever since. I try to read the novel at least once every year. After reading the book for the first time, I bought the movie on tape and watched at least a hundred times over the years. Now I own the DVD and try to watch it every now and then. It's by far one of my favorite King stories.

Ok, one more question...who are your favorite characters?

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Stu Redman. To me he's the ultimate hero. He has such great integrity and honesty, so much so that you can't see him as a bad guy at all. Gary Sinise was the perfect actor to play him in the film since I think he posesses these same qualities. If they ever remake this film, Gary HAS to be Stu. There's just no other choice.

Some other favorite characters: Larry, Glen, Flagg, Frannie (in the book) and Nick.

Any other thoughts?
