Jen Garner and Jen Lopez Fighting to Be In The Stand Reboot... or Not

Considering the source for this story, it's probably completely made up.  Just saying.

Star magazine is reporting that Jennifer Garner has been begging Ben Afleck for a role in his upcoming adaptation of The Stand, but he's refusing her wishes.  An insider has reported that he wants to keep his family life away from his movie career.  

When Jennifer Lopez showed interest in the film, he agreed to hire her.  Bad move Ben. Garner is reportedly very angry that he was so quick to hire his ex.  Looks like Bennifer is back!!

A source close to Afleck says the story is more "science fiction than truth".  That's not an outright denial. Sounds ridiculous enough to have some truth inside the stupidity.

Ugh.

Based on the masterpiece of apocalyptic horror by celebrated author Stephen King, this lavish adaptation is packed with extras in a two-volume slipcased set!

Grover Gardner Blogs About His Reading of The Stand Audiobook

The unabridged audiobook version of The Stand was just recently released on Audible and iTunes. Read by Grover Gardner, who also read the abridged version that has been out of print for some time now.

He wrote a great blog post on the audiobook and his prepartaions for the reading.

Well, it's out on Audible today--Stephen King's The Stand. This is not the edited version I recorded twenty-five years ago, it's the complete, uncut edition published in 1990, all forty-eight hours of it! It took four weeks to record, and I had to pace myself so I wouldn't sound fatigued or thread-bare at any point. I'm pleased with the recording, though I'll be interested to see how it holds up against the earlier version in the memories of King devotees. The old version was only available on cassette and has been out of print for a decade or more. I still get emails from people asking if I have a copy they could borrow and duplicate for themselves. Alas, no, I never got one. But now there's no need. The new version is complete, and in my humble opinion I'm a better narrator than I was twenty-five years ago, so I was delighted to have a chance to re-record it.

I'm gonna pick this up soon.  I have the original abridged version on cassette.
