The big-screen adaptation of the classic fantasy/horror novel is getting its third director in six months. Josh Boone (Stuck In Love) is in talks to rewrite and direct Warner Bros’ The Stand, based on Stephen King‘s postapocalyptic 1978 book. He steps in for Scott Cooper, who was tapped in August to replace Ben Affleck as director and do a rewrite. Boone directed The Fault In Our Stars, starring Shailene Woodley, which Fox 2000 will open June 6.
