John Cusack to Star in Stephen King's "Cell"

Posted: October 31st, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
John Cusack to Star in Stephen KingSubmit Comment
John Cusack (1408, Stand By Me) has signed on to star in another Stephen King movie, called "Cell." King co-wrote the screenplay with "The Last House on the Left" writer Adam Alleca.

Plot: Artist Clayton Riddell had been in Boston negotiating a successful deal to sell his comic book project. His joy at finally hitting it big is shattered by an event called The Pulse which causes all those who were using their cell phones at the time of The Pulse to become zombies attacking and killing anyone in their way. Fortunately for Clay, he does not own a cell phone.

In the panic to get out of Boston and find his way home to his wife and son in Maine, he is joined by Tom McCourt, a man he meets in the events immediately following The Pulse and a young girl, Alice, who they rescue from being killed by one of the "crazies." The story follows their terrifying journey, avoiding capture and worse by the "crazies" who are beginning to "flock" and are led by one they call Raggedy Man as they attempt to reach Maine and a place called Kashwak which they hope will be their salvation.

**Spoiler**

When he barely makes out alive to his home, Cusack's character finds that his family has been turned to zombies & they kill'im...

Remind me if I'm correct with this assumption...

BTW Cusack is a solid actor...one of the few ones that started early (earliest I've sern him was in SIXTEEN CANDLES) & has been in the movie biz barely making any waves in his personal life in the spot light...

So they adapt one of King's more crappy books, but still nothing on the 'From a Buick 8' front, huh?

"Remind me if I'm correct with this assumption..."

No.

"On November 11, 2009, Stephen King announced at a book signing in Dundalk, Maryland that he had finished a screenplay. He stated that he had complaints with the ending of the book and it was redone for the screenplay"

Sorry, Cell-uloid, didn't mean to sound like a d*ck. Just that it looks like the film version will have a different ending, a la The Mist.

I swear, The Cell sure does sound a lot like a smaller, more provincial The Stand...

Thoughts?

I wanna see an adaptation of John Farris' All Heads Turn When The Hunt Goes By and watch the studio keep the original title so I can watch all heads turning and laughing as they drive by the theater with the marquee that says All Heads Turn When The Hunt Goes By. Anything by Farris blows the pants off anything by King.
