    Well, it was a brief affair, and one that ends like so many Hollywood relationships do, thanks to "creative differences" (just ask Joe Carnahan). Just three months after it found a new director after Ben Affleck exited the project, Warner Bros. will need to find someone else to direct "The Stand."
