Cinemystery: John Cusack to Star in Film Adaptation of Stephen King's Cell

Cinemystery: Crime Novels Adapted for Film

The AFM (American Film Market) Conference is underway in Santa Monica and the first bit of news we're hearing (via Screen Daily) is that John Cusack will star in a film adaptation of Stephen King's 2006 thriller Cell.

King co-wrote the screenplay with Adam Alleca. The producers are currently seeking a director for the film.

"Stephen King is a legendary storyteller and the master at this genre," said Marina Grasic, CEO of Cargo Entertainment, which is co-producing the project. "We believe the reteaming of King with Cusack is a winning combination that audiences around the world will want to see."

Cusack previously starred in 1408, a 2007 film based on King's short story of the same title.

Cell by Stephen King

Your number is up …

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 meleé 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.
