The HitFix reports that Warner Bros. Pictures are finalising the deals for David Yates and Steve Kloves to work together again for The Stand. If everything goes their way, David Yates will direct the movie The Stand, while Steve Kloves writes the script for it based on the the Stephen King novel with the same name.
Sources claim that The Stand is made into multi movies, which is set in a time after a virus wipes out most of the American population. The movie focuses on a group of survivors fighting the Antichrist-like Randall Flagg while it features dozens of characters and overlapping storylines running over many years.
Director David Yates and screenwriter Steve Kloves, who worked for the last four movies of Harry Potter, might have ended the film series. But Warner Bros. Pictures do not seem to let the masterminds go. According to reports, the studio has planned to rope in the director and writer for forthcoming movie The Stand.
