Based on our last report in May, shooting was reportedly supposed to begin last month on Cell, based on the novel by Stephen King. I don’t think cameras have started rolling quite just yet, but I have discovered a piece of sales art that will likely be used to tout the film at the American Film Market next month.
The film will be directed by Tod “Kip” Williams (Paranormal Activity 2) and John Cusack (1408) is attached to star.
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.”
