With Affleck Playing Batman, THE STAND Gets A New Director

Way back before all the controversy of Ben Affleck being the new BATMAN genre fans were scratching their heads when it was announced that he was slated to direct the big screen adaptation of Stephen Kings’s THE STAND. In hindsight, seeing what he did with ARGO it would have been a coup to have him behind the camera.

We’ll never know though as he has had to drop out of the gig because of not just now being BATMAN but also because of a flick titled GONE GIRL. Longs story short, THE STAND has a new director and it’s SCOTT COOPER. Time is running out as Warner and CBS loose the rights soon so they had to get a new helmer pretty damn quick.

Cooper is currently in post production on OUT OF THE FURNACE which stars the old Batman, Christian Bale and Ben’s brother Casey. His only other directorial effort was CRAZY HEART which of course won star Jeff Bridges an Academy Award.

So, a good choice? Interested in your thoughts. Seems like a pretty good choice to me.
