Check out this official first look at the adaptation of Stephen King’s Cell, which stars American History X and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For‘s Stacy Keach, Orphan‘s Isabelle Fuhrman, The Raven‘s John Cusack, and RoboCop and Oldboy‘s Samuel L. Jackson.
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 directs.
The screenplay for Cell was written by Stephen King, with revisions by Adam Alleca.
