HN Entertainment has been able to confirm that directing duo Danielle Krudy and
Bridget Savage Cole, who worked together on the dark thriller feature film Blow The Man Down (screened at the Toronto Film Festival and Tribeca Film Festival) has joined the CBS All Access series adaptation of Stephen King’s The Stand.
After a deadly plague kills most of the world’s population, the remaining survivors split into two groups – one led by a benevolent elder and the other by a maleficent being – to face each other in a final battle between good and evil.
The series is being led by showrunner Josh Boone (The New Mutants, The Fault In Our Stars).
They won’t be the other directors working on the series as we previously reported that Bates Motel’s Tucker Gates is on the series as well.
The Stand will star James Marsden (Westworld) as Stu Redman, Amber Heard (Aquaman) as Nadine Cross, Alexander Skarsgard (The Little Drummer Girl) as Randall Flagg, Whoopi Goldberg (Ghost) as Mother Abagail, Greg Kinnear as Glen Bateman, Odessa Young as Frannie Goldsmith, Henry Zaga (The New Mutants) as Nick Andros.
Filming has been taking place in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada since September.
The Stand is expected to drop on CBS All Access sometime next year.
