New look at Cell, starring Samuel L. Jackson and John Cusack

It ain't much, but it's something. A new image for Tod Williams' CELL has been released, as you can see above. (Click on it to make it bigger.) The film of course is based on the Stephen King novel of the same name and stars John Cusack, Samuel L. Jackson, Isabelle Fuhrman and Stacy Keach.

Perhaps more significant than the image is this news: Clarius Entertainment has acquired US rights to the film, which was produced by Benaroya Pictures and The Genre Company. The plan is to release it theatrically later this year.

“CELL is an exciting addition to our slate, with solid pedigree both in front of and behind the camera and a wild ride of a story for our cell phone-dependent culture,” said Louise Chater, Clarius’ acquisition head. “Our team is very much looking forward to working with these filmmakers and bringing the film into the US marketplace.”

When a powerful signal is broadcast across mobile networks worldwide, cell phone users' minds are instantly and dangerously re-programmed. Heading north through New England in search of his wife and son, Clay Riddell (Cusack) is joined by a group of survivors hoping to fend off the bloodthirsty and hyper-connected "phoners."
