Isabelle Fuhrnan Dials Cell
She'll be terrorized in the Stephen King adaptation

Isabelle-Fuhrman-Dials-The-Cell

After a rocky road on the development path, the adaptation of Stephen King’s killer mobile signal thriller Cell is finally putting the pieces in place under the direction of Tod Williams. Orphan’s Isabelle Fuhrman is aboard to play teenager Alice Maxwell.

Fuhrman, who last cropped up in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, joins Samuel L. Jackson and John Cusack in the film, which posits the world falling into chaos when a mysterious, phone-borne signal turns a wide swathe of the population into zombie-like hunters with a herd mentality.

Cusack is starring as graphic artist Clay Riddell, who escapes from Boston when the signal starts to drive people around him violently insane. Jackson will be Tom McCourt, a soldier-turned-engineer who helps Riddell flee the city, while Fuhrman is set as the young woman who tags along on their desperate quest for survival.

Williams is working from a script by King himself and Last House On The Left writer Adam Alleca, aiming at a 2015 release date. Fuhrman has worked on two indie movies recently, The Wilderness Of James and Dear Eleanor, but there’s no sign of when – or if – either film will arrive on these shores.
