Monday, 4 November 2013
According to Deadline, Jackson will play "Tom McCourt, an engineer and former soldier who with Cusack’s Clay Riddell character flees from Boston as the world turns mad thanks to the phones."
For those unfamiliar with the novel, Cell tells the story of the fallout after a mysterious cellphone signal is broadcast across the globe, turning mobile users into zombie-like bloodthirsty killers. The script for the film has been written by King and Adam Alleca (Last House of the Left), with Tod "Kip" Williams (Paranormal Activity 2) set to direct.
