Cell's plot sees the majority of the world's population turned into mindless, vicious animals by a mysterious signal transmitted over mobile phones.

The Last House On The Left scribe Adam Alleca co-wrote the screenplay with King, and Cargo Entertainment are on board to produce the project, reports Screen Daily.

Cusack previously starred in another King adaptation, 1408, alongside Samuel L Jackson. The movie is considered one of the better films inspired by the author's work.

A director for Cell is expected to be appointed soon.
