Samuel L. Jackson has joined the cast of the film adaptation of Stephen King?s 2006 novel "Cell" at Benaroya Pictures and The Genre Company.

 

Jackson will play Tom McCourt, an engineer and former soldier who teams with Clay Riddell (John Cusack) to escape Boston as the world turns mad.

 

The cause is a powerful signal being broadcast across cell phone networks worldwide which re-programs the users? minds and makes them murderous beasts.

 

Tod 'Kip' Williams is directing from a script co-written by King and Adam Alleca. Shooting aims to start early next year.

This plot sounds like the synopsis of an early season X-Files episode.

 

At least its better than trees making people kill themselves like The Happening.

The read was awesome. For me, it always is with King. I've read all of his works at least 3x some 5x in my 35 years of reading.

Then there is Samuel Jackson.  :punk:

Jules: You, flock of seagulls, you know why we're here? Why don't you tell my man Vincent where you got the #### hid at?

Marvin: It's over th...

Jules: I don't remember askin' you a Goddamn thing! You were saying?

Roger: It's in the cupboard.

[Vincent starts looking in the upper cupboard]

Roger: No, no, the one by your kn-knees.

Jules: We happy?

[Vincent continues staring at the briefcase's contents]

Jules: Vincent! We happy?

Vincent: Yeah, we happy.

Brett: I'm sorry, I didn't get your name. I got yours, Vincent, right? But I didn't get yours...

Jules: My name's Pitt. And your ass ain't talkin' your way out of this ####.

Brett: No, no, I just want you to know... I just want you to know how sorry we are that things got so ####ed up with us and Mr. Wallace. We got into this thing with the best intentions and I never...

Jules: [Jules shoots the man on the couch] I'm sorry, did I break your concentration? I didn't mean to do that. Please, continue, you were saying something about best intentions. What's the matter? Oh, you were finished! Well, allow me to retort. What does Marsellus Wallace look like?

Brett: What?

Jules: What country are you from?

Brett: What? What? Wh - ?

Jules: "What" ain't no country I've ever heard of. They speak English in What?

Brett: What?

Jules: English, mother####er, do you speak it?

Brett: Yes! Yes!

Jules: Then you know what I'm sayin'!

Brett: Yes!

Jules: Describe what Marsellus Wallace looks like!

Brett: What?

Jules: Say 'what' again. Say 'what' again, I dare you, I double dare you mother####er, say what one more Goddamn time!

Brett: He... he's black...

Jules: Go on...

Brett: He's bald

Jules: Does he look like a bitch?

Brett: What?

Jules: [Shoots Brett in the shoulder] DOES HE LOOK LIKE A BITCH?

Brett: No!

Jules: Then why you try to #### him like a bitch?

Brett: I didn't...

Jules: Yes you did. Yes you did! You tried to #### him. And Marcellus Wallace don't like to be ####ed by anybody except Mrs. Wallace.

Or a Misery.
