I believe King co-wrote the screenplay.

Does anyone have any details on exactly how much of the script he wrote, and how the collaboration was executed? Did he write a first draft, with the subsequent drafts rewritten by the other person? Were any uncredited writers also involved, say in polish drafts? How much of what he wrote was left in?

Thanks...

From what I've found he wrote the screenplay back in 2009 and changed the ending of it due to reader backlash over the original ending :/ They probably completely murdered the screenplay he wrote.

Refreshing to see this query regarding who wrote the screen play. As much as I enjoyed the book (Cell) & got excited when I read it will be a movie... my next thought was who paid for the movie writes & is SK involved at all. A very long way to go to say I appreciate the thought & likely the experience that is behind the asking of the question.
