PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 2 Director Tod Williams To Helm Stephen King's CELL
Last year, it was revealed that John Cusack would star in the big screen adaptation of Cell. Well, Tod "Kip" Williams has now signed up to helm the movie which has been written by Stephen King and The Last House On The Left's Adam Alleca.
Screen Daily reveals that Tod Williams will direct Cell for Cargo Entertainment. He is perhaps best known for helming the second instalment in the Paranormal Activity franchise; a film which went on to make an impressive $175 million worldwide. Stephen King, who wrote the novel that the film is based on, penned the screenplay alongside Last House On The Left writer Adam Alleca. Production is expected to begin as soon as this May. "Tod is a dynamic filmmaker whose work has been both critically acclaimed and commercially successful," said Cargo CEO, Marina Grasic. "He brings a unique and exciting vision to Cell that will appeal to audiences worldwide."
Artist Clayton Riddell had been in Boston negotiating a successful deal to sell his comic book project. His joy at finally hitting it big is shattered by an event called The Pulse which causes all those who were using their cell phones at the time of The Pulse to become zombies attacking and killing anyone in their way. Fortunately for Clay, he does not own a cell phone. In the panic to get out of Boston and find his way home to his wife and son in Maine, he is joined by Tom McCourt, a man he meets in the meleé immediately following The Pulse and a young girl, Alice, who they rescue from being killed by one of the "crazies." The story follows their terrifying journey, avoiding capture—and worse—by the "crazies" who are beginning to "flock" and are led by one they call Raggedy Man as they attempt to reach Maine and a place called Kashwak which they hope will be their salvation.
