Stephen King’s Cell to Begin Shooting This Fall


On the eve of the Cannes Film Market, Benaroya Pictures and Miscellaneous EntertainmentÂ’s newly formed international sales company, International Film Trust, has added a new title to their Cannes slate: the Stephen King adaptation Cell, starring John Cusack.

IFT has acquired the remaining international territories for Cell with Benaroya Pictures now on board to finance and co-produce.

The film will be directed by Tod “Kip” Williams (Paranormal Activity 2) and shooting begins this September.

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.”
