Rachel Nichols (pictured inside; Star Trek, P2, The Amityville Horror, Conan The Barbarian) is in talks to join director Tom Holland’s (Fright Night 1985, Child’s Play) The 10 O’Clock People, Holland’s latest Stephen King adaptation. If she signs the dotted line, she’ll be joining Justin Long who has already been cast as the lead of Brandon Pearson. Per THR, “Rachel Nichols is in negotiations to join Justin Long in Stephen King’s The Ten O’Clock People. Nichols would play a woman who, like the man, can see a horrible aspect of reality, hidden in plain sight.”
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.
