Stephen King Sci-Fi Adaptation 'Cell' Acquired by Saban Films Stephen King fans rejoice! Cell is coming! I am super pumped for this movie! Finally an apocalyptic movie that isn't about mindless zombies. This is one of my all-time favorite novels by Stephen King. (Yes, I know. I say that about all Stephen King novels, but this one really is one of my favorites. It's on my top 10!) I have been searching and searching for information on this movie, and was hoping that they weren't going to do the same thing that they did with A Good Marriage where only select theaters ran it for a short period of time. Which I find depressing considering it is one of the very few film adaptions that actually did the story justice. It was a bit more mature than most stories though, and that's probably why it wasn't spread any further than it was. Anyway, for any anyone who hasn't read the book, I would highly recommend it. I think the ending fell a bit flat for me though, mostly because I hate cliffhangers. King cleared up what happened afterwards in a later interview, but I feel there should have been an afterword to tie up the loose ends. I can understand why he left it the way that he did, and it does allow the reader to form their own conclusion to what happens which is never a bad thing. But, John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson together again in a King movie! This I'm excited to see. I loved them both in 1408, and hope that they bring their A game to Cell as well. I was a bit skeptical about Samuel L. Jackson playing Tom, and no, it wasn't because he's black and Tom in the books is white. It's Jackson's usual tone that had me worried. He always plays very intense characters, and Tom is not intense at all. As long as he's not screaming out 'Mother fucker' every other line I think he should do well.
