James Marsden Cast in CBS All Access Adaptation of ‘The Stand’ by Stephen King


James Marsden is in talks to star in CBS All Access series adaptation of ‘The Stand’ by Stephen King.

It’s a post apocalyptic horror which was published in 1978. Josh Boone (The Fault In Our Stars) is attached to direct nine episodes from the script he co-wrote with Ben Cavell.

Marsden is set to play Stu Redman, one of the central characters of the series. After the influenza has been accidentally released to the world, the population has plummeted. Redman survived – for her is immune of the flu. He will be an integral part of the resistance against the government.
