Ben Affleck directing The Stand?

Last time I heard anything about the Last Stand there were discussions with David Yates to direct multiple movies to help tell Stephen King’s story, but those plans have apparently been scrapped and instead replaced with Ben Affleck. Seriously.

Warner Bros has chosen Ben Affleck to adapt and direct The Stand, Stephen King’s apocalyptic mammoth book. Affleck has become a cornerstone director for the studio, but this would be his greatest challenge yet. Even King has been reticent about the idea of making a feature of his book, which previously was turned into a miniseries.

I guess he has grit but working on adapting Stephen King is a bit unexpected of the burgeoning director. Can he make the post apocolyptic movie we’d want to see with this movie? I don’t know for sure but my gut tells me that he can.
