IFT, launched officially last week by Michael Benaroya and Miscellaneous Entertainment, has come on to finance and produce Cell and commences sales on a bucket of territories including the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Japan and South Korea. John Cusack is still attached to star.
As previously reported, Tod ‘Kip’ Williams will commence shooting in September on the Stephen King adaptation about a catastrophic signal blast across US phone networks.
In it, a pulse sent out through cell phones around the world turns every phone user into a crazed, murderous zombie.
Richard Saperstein and Michael Benaroya produce with The Genre Company’s Brian Witten and Shara Kay. Marina Grasic and Jan Korbelin of Cargo Entertainment serve as executive producers.
