    Stephen King's Cell - Needs a movie!

    I do believe that someone somewhere needs to make Stephen King's novel "Cell" into a movie! I read it recently and it is a great book! Please someone!!!! This would make one of the best horror movies in a long time... oh and it wouldn't be a remake!

    Mediocre book at best, I didn't even finish the last 3 chapters. Not bringing a lot of new ideas to the table.

    Last I knew Eli Roth was going to do the film, but for some reason he walked off the project. As far as I know now they are in production of a television mini-series that is said to be released some time next year. Unless the plans have been changed yet again this is it.

    Yea, i've heard the same things as well. I'm also hoping for The Long Walk to be made into a movie. I heard Frank Darabont mentioned he would do it after he's finished with Fahrenheit 451.

    The book was okay, nothing great but entertaining none the less.

    Roth has a problem directing flicks that aren't written by him, so he left due to creative differences or something along those lines. It's still in development, it's just delayed at the moment while the studio searches for a new director.

    For more details on the project check it out on UHM: http://upcominghorrormovies.com/movie/cell

    I thought the book was fantastic. I had a few nightmares when I was reading it and that NEVER happens.

    the book was good but nothing compared to Kings older novels....IT, Bag Of Bones, Insomnia, Hearts In Atlantis, The Dark Half are some of my favourites. He seems to gone into simpler horror writing now. Some books took me ages to read as they were so detailed but Cell only took me an evening.

    Think a lot of the films made of Kings novels are mediocre when the original story was amazing. The directors and writers seem to leave out a lot of the original story which would have made the films amazing insted of just good.

    Looks like this one will hit the small screen, which follows the recent trend for King novels: Salem's Lot and The Shining.

    It was a good book. Until the end... which pissed me off. I think it would make a good movie (not miniseries - i always miss 1 or 2 eps of em), but they need to to rehash the ending.

    Anyone hear anything more about this? Last I heard it is on the back burner... I agree I was not happy with the ending... but hey not everything can be nice and neat.... The ending to the Mist made me mad too... I would like to see The Stand remade.... Did anyone read the book? I still wonder about the part about the guy they called the wolfman? What was the story behind him? Flagg must have had issues with him... that would be cool if anyone had any insight into this..

    a lot King films turn out bad
    ex. Graveyard Shift, Maximum Overdrive, Thinner, Children of The Corn
    however I would have loved to see what Eli Roth would do combined with Stephen King
