Samuel L. Jackson Joins Stephen King’s ‘Cell’
Deadline reports the always-busy actor will co-star with John Cusack in the upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s 2006 novel Cell.
The novel features a world where a huge portion of the population gets turned into ravenous monsters due to a corrupted cellular phone network. Cusack stars as Clay Riddell, a comic artist who teams up with Jackson’s engineer/veteran Tom McCourt and teenager Alice Maxwell to not only survive, but find Clay’s son Johnny.
Paranormal Activity 2 director Tod “Kip” Williams signed on to helm the picture based on a script co-written by King and Adam Alleca (Last House on the Left). The film does not yet have an announced release date at this point.
