Stephen King’s The Stand has been in development hell for as long as I can remember. At one point Ben Affleck was rumored to direct, yet nothing ever came out of it. Recently it has been rumored that Matthew McConaughey is expected to play the part of the villain, Randall Flagg.

Randall Flagg is a primary character used by Stephen King nine time, sometimes as the main antagonist but other times as a cameo appearance. He first appeared in “The Stand” as a demon who wrecks havoc after a plague decimates most of the population.

Having such an actor as McConaughey in the role would bring a very creep villain with the perfect amount of charisma to make him appealing towards the views yet be a creepy and worthwhile villain. Recently he has completely turned his career around and taking such a role would only further his success.

You can read a more in-depth article here. Josh Boone is set to direct while the release date isn’t confirmed but don’t be surprised for a late 2016 release date.
