    Looks like a phoner to me.

    I'm assuming hypothetically that the reason King appears third under Cusack and Jackson in IMDb.com's list of actors has to do with his having just one name. For instance, if Cantinflas were also in the movie he'd be listed above King alphabetically (though the rest aren't listed alphabetically. It's just an hypothesis). As for concerns that his presence will detract, I trust the filmmakers to cast parts wisely. Besides, you never know how someone might impress. You might really like the contribution he makes, which, as a "phoner" I expect will be brief indeed.

    I haven't gotten the hints:sad:I think I was too young to get them back then, I read the book when I was about 14 or 15, and it was in Russian, so, probably, some of these hints were just lost when translated. I still can't find the book in the original here, saw it once, but didn't buy it for ome reason, and now I can't find it...

    They are going to release the movie this year, aren't they? I am sooo looking forward to it!

    THEY HAVE TO ADAPT THIS TO A MOVIE.... LOVE THIS BOOK... Read it 9 times.

    Jackson as McCourt?? Not the first person I'd pick as MacCourt is supposed to be a fine built GAY guy.(Nothing against gays , I myself am proudly Lesbian) Jackson hardly fits that profile.. And changing the character to being a former soldier what is with that??

    It's already done. Steve told me a couple days ago he had seen the rough cut and was pleased with how it's turned out

    From his Buzzfeed interview:

    Now that Cell, adapted from King’s zombie novel, has wrapped, he teased what he could about the film. “The movie is not totally close to the original screenplay that I wrote,” he said. “But I’ll tell you what, the end of it is so goddamn dark and scary. It’s really kind of a benchmark there.”

    Do we know a release date for the movie yet? Really looking forward to it! Like so many others have said John Cusack and Samuel L Jackson are excellent actors, and I think they'll do a great job :)
