Stephen King's epic story of post-apocalyptic America is getting another small-screen adaptation as a new miniseries preps for a 2020 debut. This is the second time around for the scary story of good vs. evil, as the first miniseries made its original debut in 1994. Starring Molly Ringwald and Gary Sinise, the original miniseries was a hit with fans and still draws a lot of adoration due to the cast, the premise, and good old-fashioned nostalgia. 

So how does the new cast measure up against the classic?
