Who’s adapting the novel now?
A screen adaptation of Stephen King’s “Cell” has been at a stand-still since Eli Roth walked away from the project. But no longer.
Word out of the Fantastia Film Festival in Montreal is that there is a new creative entity on board: John Harrison. He recently told audiences that he’s signed aboard to turn the book into a mini-series. For who? He never explained. Is Dimension Films still involved or did they lose the rights? Hopefully, more details will come to the fore in the coming months.
Harrison recently completed Clive Barker’s Book of Blood.
In “Cell,” cell phone users around the world are turned into mindless killers. During this apocalyptic phenomenon, a New England artist teams with other unaffected by the cell signal to find his son.
