Looks like another Stephen King book was just added to my to-read list. His book Cell about an apocalypse spread through cell phones is on its way to being made into a movie for Benaroya Pictures and The Genre Company. Here’s the synopsis for the book.

According to THR, John Cusack is set to play Clay Riddell (mentioned above) and Samuel L. Jackson is set to play opposite him as Tom McCourt, a former soldier and engineer. It is to be directed by Tod “Kip” Williams (Paranormal Activity 2).

We’ll keep you posted on the latest for Cell.
