I would LOVE a remake.
I didn't think the mini-series was awful, but I certainly don't think it holds up real well. The poor production values and rushed feel didn't do the book justice.
I thought some of the casting and acting were pretty bad as well. Molly Ringwald, really?! Ruby Dee reminded me of Tracy Morgan in drag the entire movie. Rob Lowe as Nick Andros? It just didn't work for me at all.
I think a remake of The Stand would be better done as a series, much like the treatment The Walking Dead is getting over on AMC. If someone like HBO could get behind it with a real budget, you could land some solid actors and make an amazing series.
