For a while it looked like the movie adaptation of Stephen King’s Cell had gone to development hell to die, but today brings word that the project has been given a new lease on life … as a television miniseries.
“Some cool news just came out during the Q&A following the North American premiere of John Harrison’s adaptation of Clive Barker’s Book of Blood. According to Harrison he has just signed up to adapt Stephen King’s technology spawned zombie story Cell. Following the demise of the Eli Roth adaptation, Harrison was approached to do a TV mini-series version.
Look for our review tomorrow, but if Cell is adapted as faithfully as Book of Blood, fans are likely to be pretty
satisfied. Keep it here or follow us on Twitter at @dreadfantasia for more as it happens at Fantasia.”
Good news, and expect more updates in the days to come.
