The Cannes Film Market was underway and in anticipation for that, some news has come our way concerning Stephen King’s upcoming CELL adaptation. Read on for the details.
Benaroya Pictures and Miscellaneous Entertainment’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.”
