Stephen King’s Cell is one of his weakest entries of the last few years, but the writer himself has said he would change the ending for this movie version… and now we get the first look at it.
Stacy Keach, Isabelle Fuhrman, John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson all star in the upcoming release: “Fuhrman plays a teenage neighbor of Cusack’s Clay Riddell character who joins him and Jackson’s Tom McCourt character on their journey to safety after a mysterious pulse spreads like a virus through the human population. Keach (“Nebraska”) will play the headmaster of a prep school where the survivors stop along their way, Variety previously reported.”
When a powerful signal is broadcast across mobile networks worldwide, cell phone users’ minds are instantly and dangerously re-programmed. Heading north through New England in search of his wife and son, Clay Riddell (Cusack) is joined by a group of survivors hoping to fend off the bloodthirsty and hyper-connected “phoners.”
Paranormal Activity 2’s Tod Kip Williams is directing and the screenplay was written by King himself and Adam Alleca.
