Just finished reading Stephen King's Cell, which was good classic King, and wanted to see if a movie was in the works...
Well, there kind of is, and it's probably going to be directed by Eli Roth, which makes me want to cry.
Now don't get me wrong, Roth is a good director if all you want from a movie is blood and boobs (at the expense of good characters or story).. Okay, I hate him. I've seen Cabin Fever, Hostel and Hostel 2 and couldn't stand any of them. They weren't scary, they weren't... anything. Boobs and Blood is all he is.
If there was a movie called Boobs and Blood, Eli Roth would be the director.
The thing is: Cell is a good story. It follows a young father trying to understand life after a mysterious cell phone "pulse" turns the phone speaking public into telepathic zombies.... okay, but it still has a great story, strong human elements, emotion, and drama.... blood, yes, it has blood, but... It's too deep for a Eli Roth film.
Q: What Did Eli Roth say after watching Star Wars?
A: It would have been better if it was all about boobs and blood.
