Paul Greengrass - Paul Greengrass In Talks To Revive The Stand

Filmmaker Paul Greengrass has been tipped to direct a movie adaptation of Stephen King's classic The Stand.

The Bourne Supremacy director is reportedly in talks with bosses at Warner Bros. to create a new film based on King's 1978 post-apocalyptic horror novel, according to Badassdigest.com.

The film has faced numerous delays since Harry Potter director David Yates reportedly stepped down in 2011. Ben Affleck was also linked to the job earlier this year (13) before walking away, and his replacement, Scott Cooper, also recently exited the project.

The Stand was previously seen as a 1994 Tv mini-series starring Gary Sinise, Rob Lowe and Molly Ringwald.
