Smart phones turn people into zombies in Cell, the new Stephen King adaptation starring John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson. Here is the trailer, which doesn’t really sell us anything new. There’s always room for surprises though:
Here’s the synopsis:
When a mysterious cell phone signal causes apocalyptic chaos, an artist is determined to reunite with his young son in New England.
Not much detail, but it has potential if for no other reason John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson are an interesting pairing. And it’s a Stephen King adaptation which, nobody’s ever made a poor one of those, right? It just kinda seems like this is the sort of King story that works better on the pages, but I’m willing to be wrong.
Isabelle Fuhrman and Stacy Keach also star in Cell, directed by Tod Williams, and will hit theaters later this year.
