Информация за филма, която вече съм пускал в темата "Предстоящи филми по Кинг":
Produced by Cargo Entertainment, the film will star John Cusack (1408) with Tod Williams (Paranormal Activity 2) directing. The final screenplay for Cell was written by Stephen.
http://www.filmofilia.com/tod-kip-willi ... ll-136810/Tod Williams is set to direct Cell, an adaptation of Stephen King‘s novel of the same name. Nothing to be surprised about, after all – Williams aka Kip is the man who stands behind Paranormal Activity 2, so he’s probably the perfect guy to bring an apocalyptic horror novel to the big screen, right?
Another good thing about this project is that John Cusack is still attached to play the lead (Clayton Riddell, I guess), and according to the latest reports – Stephen King adapted the screenplay together with Adam Alleca (writer of The Last House on the Left).
Production on Cell should start this May.

Сценарият на "Cell" няма да е на Кинг:
*During a Reddit AMA interview earlier today, actor John Cusack revealed that the film adaptation of Stephen King’s zombie techno-thriller Cell that he’s starring in will be written by Mark Leyner, who last worked with Cusack as the writer of War, Inc.
“Stephen King is a great writer to work with,” Cusack told a fan who asked him about 1408. “Doing a version of Cell with War, Inc. writer Mark Leyner. It should be another mind bender!”
War, Inc. also starred Iron Man 3 villain Sir Ben Kingsley as a secretive warlord pulling the strings from behind the scenes. That was, by all indications, good practice for his role in the Marvel Universe later on.
Previous reports (and the film’s IMDb page) had the movie written by Adam Alleca of The Last House on the Left; whether he’ll be working with Leyner or has been replaced as the film’s writer isn’t clear.

On the eve of the Cannes Film Market, Benaroya Pictures and Miscellaneous Entertainment’s newly formed international sales company, International Film Trust, has added a new title to their Cannes slate: the Stephen King adaptation Cell, starring John Cusack.
IFT has acquired the remaining international territories for Cell with Benaroya Pictures now on board to finance and co-produce.

On the eve of the Cannes Film Market, Benaroya Pictures and Miscellaneous Entertainment’s newly formed international sales company, International Film Trust (IFT), has added a new title to their Cannes slate - the Stephen King adaptation CELL, starring John Cusack - it was announced today by IFT President Ariel Veneziano.
IFT has acquired the remaining international territories for CELL, based on the novel by Stephen King, with Benaroya Pictures now on board to finance and co-produce.
CELL stars Golden Globe nominee John Cusack (2012) and will be directed by Tod "Kip" Williams (PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 2, THE DOOR IN THE FLOOR).
Richard Saperstein (THE TOXIC AVENGER, HANCOCK, SE7EN) and Michael Benaroya (LAWLESS, MARGIN CALL) are producing along with The Genre Company's Brian Witten and Shara Kay. Marina Grasic and Jan Korbelin of Cargo Entertainment will executive produce.
The film is currently in pre-production with principal photography set to begin in September.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that Samuel L. Jackson will star opposit John Cusack in Cell.
Samuel L. Jackson will star opposite John Cusack in Cell for Benaroya Pictures and The Genre Company.
Tod "Kip" Williams is directing the film adaptation of Stephen King's apocalyptic thriller, and is set to begin shooting in January. Benaroya is financing the project, which International Film Trust will shop to foreign buyers at the American Film Market, which gets underway Wednesday in Santa Monica.
“It's really exciting to have such a great cast continue to come together on this project,” said Benaroya Pictures principal Michael Benaroya. “Our goal is to create exciting commercial fare with top talent to really deliver on the concept of an elevated genre film.”
Jackson will play Tom McCourt, an engineer and former solider who escapes from Boston with Cusack's character, Clay Riddell, after a mysterious pulse transmitted by cell phones spreads like a virus among the human population.
King wrote the adapted screenplay with Adam Alleca.
Richard Saperstein is producing alongside Benaroya, Brian Witten and Shara Kay. During his tenure as president of Dimension Films, Saperstein oversaw the film adaptations of King's The Mist and 1408.
Isabelle Fuhrman, who has played memorable baddies in both The Hunger Games and Orphan, has landed the female lead opposite Samuel L. Jackson and John Cusack in The Cell. The film is an adaptation of the Stephen King thriller novel about an apocalyptic event that amounts to a pitch heard by anyone on a cell phone at a certain moment in time, which turns them into zombified beings with a herd mentality. Fuhrman will play the lead role of Alice. Paranormal Activity 2 helmer Tod Williams is directing a script by King and Adam Alleca, the latter of whom scripted Last House On The Left.
