*Samuel L. Jackson has joined John Cusack in “The Cell,” the film adaptation of Stephen King’s apocalyptic thriller for Benaroya Pictures and The Genre Company.
Jackson will play Tom McCourt, an engineer and former solider who escapes from Boston with Cusack’s character, Clay Riddell, after a mysterious pulse transmitted by cell phones spreads like a virus among the human population.
King wrote the adapted screenplay with Adam Alleca.
Tod “Kip” Williams is directing the film, which is set to begin shooting in January.
Benaroya is financing the project, which International Film Trust will shop to foreign buyers at the American Film Market, which gets underway Wednesday in Santa Monica, reports Deadline.com.
Jackson most recently co-starred in “Django Unchained” and next appears in the upcoming films “Oldboy” and “Robocop.”
