Read the Stand many times & saw it on tv too. It was good. What technologies could improve it? And just because it could be done--should it be redone ??Why would one remake a successful series just because they CAN? Makes no sense to me. Make another one of something else! Theres so many worthy stories out there, that remaking a successful one is throwing money out the window or like shooting your own foot...no point, no benefit, and could be harmful or at least painful! ouch.
Normally I would agree with you. But this time I have to confess to being one of the many fans who feel that The Stand could have been done better. The 94 mini-series isn't horrible. I disagree with those folks. In 94 it seemed pretty good to me actually. But in 2011 I have to agree that it's getting pretty creaky. A re-make could be interesting. Time will tell if it happens.
