Morgan to rewrite ‘Cellular’

Devlin will helm Centropolis' developing pic

Scribe Chris Morgan has inked a low- to mid-six-figure deal to rewrite “Cellular” for Dean Devlin, who is making his directorial debut with the pic.

Original script was penned by Larry Cohen (“Phone Booth”).

Project, which Devlin is developing via his Sony-based Centropolis shingle, is an action film about a man who gets a random call on a cell phone from a woman who claims she has been kidnapped.

Film will be produced by Centropolis along with Lauren Lloyd and Walter Hamada of MBST Entertainment.

Morgan has also sold “S.W.A.T.” to Columbia; “Siege Master” at Beacon; and the pitch “Darkness,” based on the Top Cow comic, to Columbia. He also rewrote “The Rally” for Warner Bros.

The scribe is managed by MBST Entertainment and agent Boyd Hancock at the Irv Schechter Agency. His attorney is Jeff Frankel at Colden, McKuin and Frankel.
