Ben Affleck's adaptation of the post-apocalyptic horror/fantasy novel, The Stand has added writer David Kajganich.

The Stand is a post-apocalyptic horror/fantasy novel by American author Stephen King. The story starts when a government-run lab accidentally lets loose a deadly virus, most of the population of the world is wiped-out. Survivors begin having dreams about two figures: a mystical old woman, or a foreboding, scary man. As the story tracks various people, we begin to realize that the two figures exemplify basic forces of good and evil, and the stage is set for a final confrontation between the representatives of each.

Originally Ben Affleck was writing and directing the project, but the writer gained attention after writing a script to the upcoming remake of another Stephen King classic, IT.
