Stephen King’s ‘Cell’ filming in September

Stephen King_CellBenaroya Pictures and Miscellaneous Entertainment’s newly formed international sales company, International Film Trust (IFT), has added a new title to their slate – the Stephen King adaptation CELL, starring John Cusack – it was announced at Cannes by IFT President Ariel Veneziano.

IFT has acquired the remaining international territories for CELL, based on the novel by Stephen King, with Benaroya Pictures now on board to finance and co-produce. CELL stars Golden Globe nominee John Cusack (2012) and will be directed by Tod “Kip” Williams (PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 2, THE DOOR IN THE FLOOR).

Richard Saperstein (THE TOXIC AVENGER, HANCOCK, SE7EN) and Michael Benaroya (LAWLESS, MARGIN CALL) are producing along with The Genre Company’s Brian Witten and Shara Kay. Marina Grasic and Jan Korbelin of Cargo Entertainment will executive produce. The film is currently in pre-production with principal photography set to begin in September.

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.”
