Greengrass Favorite To Helm “The Stand”?

Paul Greengrass is the latest name said to be at the top of the wish list to direct the film adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Stand” at Warner Bros. Pictures.

Scott Cooper (“Out of the Furnace,” “Crazy Heart”) dropped out of the adaptation not long ago, and today comes word of Greengrass being sought for the project according to Bad Ass Digest.

This would seem to indicate that Warners remains committed to the project, despite the various problems that it has faced along the way.
