    This has been in the works for several years, but it seems to be picking up speed:

    Samuel L. Jackson Reunites With John Cusack for Another Stephen King Adaptation

    According to a press release, Jackson "will play Tom McCourt, an engineer and former soldier who escapes from Boston along with Cusack’s character, Clay Riddell, after a mysterious pulse, transmitted by cell phones, spreads like a virus through the human population."

    The film will be directed by Tod "Kip" Williams (Paranormal Activity 2).

    I'd thought there was a thread for this but guess not so may have to create one if it's finally going to see production. Thanks for the update, Bev!

    I can actually see Cusack in that part.

    I used to have a big crush on John Cusack (along the lines of how Sunny feels about Johnny Depp)

    You might not like him so much after seeing him in 'The Paperboy'. (or at least see him in a different light)He is an amazing actor!!

    skimom2 Just moseyin' through...

    I love, Love, LOVE this book, and admire the hell out of both Cusack and Jackson... but I totally can't see Jackson as McCourt. Why is the character now 'a former soldier'? *sideeye* I'm feeling a bit grumbly about all that, TBH. Looks like they're aiming for another silly 'explosions movie', and that makes me sad.

    I also love the book. And I am really looking forward to seeing the movie. I like Cusack, he is a good actor. I hope that they make it good, because the story has everything to become a great movie.

    Seems to me, the book had enough explosions.

    Not sure if anyone heard, but the two stars of "1408," John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson, will return to another King film adaptation, the long awaited "Cell" movie. Click here to read the article. Thoughts?

    When I posted this there was not a thread on it, then my comment was consolidated here.

    Does any one have any info on the ending planned? I loved the story and really glad to see Samuel & John reignite the 1408 bond, however, if the ending is like the book I will have to give it a massive miss after crying the last time I read Cell and the truly horrific, brutal ending it had. You would put a rabbid animal to peace better than that IMHO xx

    AGREED, THOUGH THE THING IS, A MOVIE COULD BE GREAT, BUT RARELY DO THE MOVIES EVER LIVE UP TO THE BOOKS!

    Now that was one hot mess of a movie. Loved it, I couldn't look away! I'd watch it again. You're right, Cusack was amazing in 'The Paperboy".
