John Cusack Learns 'Due Process' and More Stephen King with 'Cell'
After venturing into Stephen King's nightmares for the adaptation of 1408, John Cusack is heading to the horror genre with the Master of Terror again as Screen Daily has learned that he will star in an adaptation of Cell, the best-selling novel about a father desperately trying to find his wife and son after some sort of catastrophe begins spreading via cellular telephones. In this day and age of cell phones being in everyone's possession nearly every minute of everyday, this could be quite the thriller. King also co-write the screenplay himself with The Last House on the Left wrter Adam Alleca, but no director is attached just yet.
In addition, a press release from Synchronicity Entertainment has Cusack attached to Due Process, a new thriller from One Perfect Day director Paul Currie. The film is slated to begin shooting in January and follows two big city bankers who head to a farm to foreclose it, but get more than they bargained for when the farmer (Cusack) is not willing to hand it over. The two hankers have yet to be cast, but this already sounds better than Cusack's more recent endeavors like The Raven. Since the actor is also very vocal about his politics on Twitter, I'm betting there's a message everyone will hear in the film as well.
