Cell: Speaking of Samuel L. Jackson, he will reteam with John Cusack for another screen adaptation of a Stephen King story. The actors previously starred together in the wildly paranormal 1408, and now Jackson will be joining Cusack for Cell, based on King's novel about a mysterious cell phone signal that turns everyone who hears it into a mindless, zombie-style killer. Tod Williams (Paranormal Activity 2) is set to direct. [Screen Daily]

The Search: Michel Hazanavicius, the Academy Award-winning director of The Artist, is reuniting with that film's costar (who is also his wife) Berenice Bejo for his next project, a drama entitled The Search. Annette Bening also stars; the film follows "an NGO worker who forms a special relationship with a young boy in war-torn Chechnya." [Deadline]

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Trailer: "The world is in grave danger" in the next chapter of The Hobbit trilogy. A new, extended trailer underlines the serious nature of the action, and the destruction wrought by the fire-breathing dragon known as Smaug. Directed by Peter Jackson, the movie explodes into theaters on December 13. [Warner Bros.]
