Justin Long (pictured below; Drag Me To Hell, Going The Distance) is in talks for the lead role of Brandon Pearson for director Tom Holland (Fright Night 1985, Child’s Play) in The 10 O’Clock People, Holland’s latest Stephen King adaptation. Per Deadline, “Justin Long is in negotiations for the lead role in The Ten O’clock People. The Live Free Or Die Hard actor would play Brandon Pearson in the modernized adaptation of the Stephen King short story.”
King’s “The Ten O’clock People” was a short story published in 1993 as part of his “Nightmares and Dreamscapes” collection (pictured above). “The story follows Brandon Pearson, who in trying to kick his smoking habit uncovers a frightening aspect of reality, he plans to extinguish through extreme measures.” Holland has remarked that “This film will be a modernization of the original short story, a paranoid suspense piece.”
The Ten O’Clock People will film this summer and be produced by Making Ten O’Clock Productions and Holland’s Dead Rabbit Films.
I thought he was great in Drag Me To Hell, but I haven’t read this story. Do you guys think he’s right for it?
