quietearth [Celluloid 11.20.12] post apocalyptic scifi horror thriller fantasy adventure

In brief: In an interview with GQ, Argo director Ben Affleck revealed frustration developing Stephen King's meandering post-apocalyptic novel, The Stand, into a trilogy.

"Right now we're having a very hard time. But I like the idea - it's like "The Lord of the Rings" in America. And it's about how we would reinvent ourselves as a society. If we started all over again, what would we do?"

First of all, I think trying to turn it into a Lord of the Rings is the team's first problem. The Stand's story structure does not really follow until, maybe, the last third of the book when they characters converge on Las Vegas.

At any rate, good luck to them. If all else fails they could bring in vocal King fan, Damon Lindelof... just saying.
