King/Roth

In answer to my question about Stephen King, I recently discovered that Eli Roth (director of Hostel) is attached to direct King's latest, Cell. Forget what I said earlier about the killer cell phone. All of a sudden I'm excited about what the collaboration might produce. I haven't been this interested in seeing a Stephen King film since the golden days I mentioned earlier in "Movies on My Mind" when directors such as DePalma, Carpenter, Cronenberg, Hooper, Romero and Kubrick brought King's work to life. No director has impacted the horror genre in recent years more than Roth. Two masters collide. I can't wait.
