So I was watching Detachment today and I had an interesting thought, I'm curious what you guys think...

Adrien Brody as Flagg...Yah or Nay?

EDIT: And it's not just because he has the perfect nose for it.

Pretty excited for this. Love Affleck's directorial work and feel like he'd nail this.


Also, that picture above always reminded me of Trent Reznor haha.

I don't know. That would be interesting. He is pretty creepy. I always think of Crispin Glover.

Stephen King wants Jake Gyllenhaal to play Stu Redman. I also read a suggesting on EW that Elizabeth Olsen should play Fran. These would both be excellent castings, in my opinion.

Affleck will likely either cast himself or his brother for one of the roles.

Casey would be great as Nick, and Ben would be great as Stu/ Larry.

I've always imagined Amy Adams as Frannie.

Affleck has truly redeemed himself after a decade of awful films.

haha I'm glad people thought The Stand ending was as awful as I did. It's the kind of ending that makes you scratch your head and wonder, why the hell did I just read 1,000 pages for that haha.

Ben's too busy being Batman to do this, so now Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart) will direct and rewrite the script

This is bullshit.

I was really looking forward to seeing what he was going to do with The Stand. ...but instead, he's decided to be a movie that will more than likely be complete shit.

I knew that was going to happen eventually. Ben wasn't really showing any interest.

Fuck, it was too good to be true.

Oh good.

“We’re gonna do one three-hour, R-rated version with an amazing A-list cast across the board,” Boone promises, rejecting not only those earlier reports that The Stand would aim for PG-13 territory, but also the suggestion that it would take two movies to cover all 823 to 1,152 pages of King’s book,"

They're looking at Mcconaughey for Flagg.

Fuck yeah.

I didn't see the miniseries until a few years ago when I rented the DVDs from Netflix and was turned off on how dated it appeared and the terrible acting. But I liked the concept of it and was meaning to read the book. I'm a fan of "Lost" and was prompted to watch the miniseries since the show's writers used the book as an influence. I feel as though if it's put in the hands of the right director and some quality actors, it could be great.
