Back in 2006, Stephen King released an apocalyptic horror novel Cell. A year later, Samuel L. Jackson and John Cusack teamed up on another one of King’s masterpiece, the movie adaptation of the 1999 short story titled 1408. This year, nearly a decade after the release of Cell, Samuel L. Jackson and John Cusack are reunited once again in the big screen adaptation of Cell.
The story revolves around Cusack’s character, Clay Riddell. A New England artist who is struggling to reunite with his young son, Johnny, after a mysterious broadcast signal dubbed The Pulse was spread over the global cell network, transforming most of mankind into mindless, vicious zombies. On his journey, Riddell linked up with Samuel L. Jackson’s character, Tom McCourt. The two then set out to find Johnny, fending off the hoards of zombies along the way and stop the person behind The Pulse before it’s too late.
This movie adaptation is directed by Paranormal Activity 2’s Tod Williams and will hit theaters on July 8 2016.
