Warner Brothers has been trying to adapt Stephen King's 'The Stand' for a while now. First they had 'Harry Potter''s David Yates on the project, then Ben Affleck was on for while before he got busy with other things (like playing Batman), so they brought in Scott Cooper, the writer/director of 'Crazy Heart' and 'Out of the Furnace.' But it's been revealed that Cooper's off the project, so now what?

After Affleck left the film behind a while ago, the project may have finally found a replacement: Scott Cooper, the helmer behind 'Crazy Heart.'
