Tod Williams (Paranormal Activity 2) is directing an adaptation of Stephen King’s The Cell, and after the announcement of a number of distribution deals at EFM, the film has now added even more weight to its cast.
Veteran genre actor Stacy Keach joins the horror project as the headmaster of a prep school where the survivors stop along their way.
Isabelle Fuhrman joined the cast this week as John plays a teenage neighbor of Cusack’s Clay Riddell character.
Tod Williams directs and John Cusack, Samuel L Jackson, Isabelle Fuhrman and Stacy Keach star in the story of a deadly pulse that affects mobile phone users.
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.”
