It’s with a giant grain of salt that we report on the possibility of Matthew McConaughey taking on the role of Randall Flagg in writer/director Josh Boone‘s upcoming four film adaptation of Stephen King‘s epic novel, The Stand. I would absolutely love it if this were true, and it may very well be, since McConaughey is currently doing the best work of his career and would absolutely kill in the role of the charismatic, powerfully evil cowboy. In fact, if you’re going to go big and get get names, I can’t see why you wouldn’t at least go out to him first.
Hit the jump for more on Matthew Mcconaughey possibly playing Randall Flagg in The Stand. Whether or not it happens, it’s a good piece of fan casting at the very least. Warner Bros. should back the money truck up to his house.
