The story follows Clay Riddell, a New England artist. He is a witness to an ugly phenomenon: a mysterious signal broadcast over the global cell phone network turns the majority of his fellow humans into mindless vicious animals. Now he and a few survivors must find and stop 'the pulse' and the person controlling it and reunite with his young son before it's too late.



John Cusack was the first actor announced to have joined the film in October 2012.[1] Samuel L. Jackson was cast as Tom McCourt in November 2013.[2] Isabelle Fuhrman was announced as Alice on February 5 2014.[3] The next day Stacy Keach was cast in an unnamed role of a headmaster.[4]
