From Screen Daily:
Former Dimension Films president of production and 1408 executive Richard Saperstein will produce through his Genre Company alongside colleagues Brian Witten and Shara Kay.
Cell is based on King’s bestseller about a father’s odyssey to find his wife and son in the wake of a catastrophic pulse transmitted via mobile phones.
King co-wrote the screenplay with The Last House On The Left screenwriter Adam Alleca. The producers are currently out to directors.
“I’m thrilled to be working with Stephen and John (Cusack) again,” said Saperstein. “Cell is an intelligent psychological thriller that delivers on both a visceral and emotional level.”
Love John Cusack. Looking forward to this.
