King's Cellphone Zombie Porn To Invade TV

The dangers of cellphones have been pronounced many times since their creation, but only one man has claimed that they'll turn you into a braindead zombie. Luckily for Stephen King, his Cell novel is being made into a TV show.

Fangoria has the scoop that the Weinstein Company is reworking Cell - King's 2006 novel about a cellphone signal turning Americans into mindless zombie-like creatures - from its failed movie pitch - at one point, to be directed by Eli Roth - into a four-hour television miniseries, with a script written by John Harrison, who's prevously worked on Painkiller Jane and Children of Dune for the SciFi Channel.

No network or transmission date has been revealed.
