Stephen King will never stop writing a bunch of books a year, and Hollywood will stop adaptating his works into films. His newest movie will be based off his book, Cell. The film is already starring John Cusack, but he’ll be joined by Samuel L. Jackson.

You may remember their duo from another King adaptation, 1408. Jackson will play Tom McCourt, an engineer and former soldier who escapes from Boston along with Cusack’s character, Clay Riddell, after a mysterious pulse, transmitted by Cell phones, spreads like a virus through the human population.


The screenplay for the film is written by Stephen King and Adam Alleca, with Tod “Kip” Williams as the director. The film is going into production in January.
