  • Dimension Films' tries King's "Cell" - March 8, 2006

    Eli Roth to Direct Stephen King's Cell

    Dimension Films has acquired rights to Stephen King's latest novell Cell and has set Hostel helmer Eli Roth to direct it, reports Variety.

    King's novel is a throwback to his early apocalyptic horror novels. In a single moment, a pulse sent out through cell phones around the world turns every phone user into a crazed, murderous zombie.

    Mike Fleiss and Chris Briggs, who with Roth produced Hostel and are readying the sequel, will produce Cell.

    The deal marks Dimension's second with King, as the studio prepares to cast the Mikael Hafstrom-directed adaptation of the King novella 1408, which Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski adapted.

    "The combination of technology and horror is fun high-concept," Dimension's Bob Weinstein said. "And Eli will make it right after he finishes 'Hostel 2.' "

    Roth wants to write the film or co-write it, depending on the time constraints created by his horror sequel, which shoots in Prague.
