CBS All Access is closing in on deals with the big-name stars for its 10-episode limited series adaptation of Stephen King's 1978 post-apocalyptic horror/fantasy novel, which chronicles the outbreak of an influenza that wipes out nearly everyone on the planet, reports TVLine. According to Deadline, Marsden is circling the lead role of Stu Redman, "a former military man who is immune to the virus. He found patient zero in the original quarantine zone but never got sick so the government was precious with him in order to try to find a vaccine from his blood." Gary Sinise played Redman in the 1994 ABC miniseries adaptation of The Stand. It's not yet clear what roles Goldberg, Heard and Sinise are in talks to play. Marsden has been busy, juggling roles on HBO's Westworld, Netflix's Dead to Me and FX's Mrs. America.
