HN Entertainment has confirmed that the CBS All Access series adaptation of Stephen King’s The Stand will begin filming on September 16th in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and is expected to wrap on March 11th.
The Stand takes place in a post-apocalyptic world triggered by the breakdown of society following the release of a biological weapon. The weapon is a virulent strain of influenza that decimates the population.
We have also learned that production designer Aaron Haye has joined the show, who recently worked on the Oscar-winning film Bohemian Rhapsody and the Charlie’s Angels reboot. He was also an art director on Dawn of The Planet of Apes and Terminator Genisys.
Collider recently reported that James Marsden (X-Men, Westworld, Superman Returns), Amber Heard (Aquaman), and Whoopi Goldberg (Ghost, Sister Act) were among actors they were looking to cast in leading roles.
With Josh Boone directing all ten episodes, I’m curious when he’ll find the film to complete the expected reshoots for The New Mutants as the film is set for release on April 3rd, 2020.
The Stand would likely start airing on CBS All Access sometime next year.
