Stephen King’s has had much of his work adapted to the screen, with everything from “Carrie” and “The Shining,” to the recent Hulu series “11/22/63.” Now, there’s an upcoming adaptation of his 2006 novel “Cell” about New England artist Clayton Riddell trying to reunite with his family after a mysterious signal on the global cell network turns the majority of the population into deranged, rabid killers. He and a group of survivors must also find the source of the pulse and stop it before it’s too late. Directed by Tod Williams (“Paranormal Activity 2”), the film stars John Cusack as Riddell, along with Samuel L. Jackson, Isabelle Fuhrman, and Stacy Keach. Watch the trailer for the film above.
John Cusack has had a thirty-year long career in the film industry, starring in such classics as “Say Anything…,” “Grosse Point Blank,” “High Fidelity,” and many, many more. Samuel L. Jackson has also had an illustrious career, frequently collaborating with directors Spike Lee and Quentin Tarantino, as well as his recurring role as Nick Fury in the Marvel franchise.
“Cell” will be released on VOD on June 10th and will enter limited release on July 8th.
