‘Child’s Play’ Director Adapting Stephen King’s ‘The Ten O’Clock People’!

The hilarious Montreal-based actor, Jay Baruchel (pictured; This Is the End, Goon), has signed on to star in and executive produce the film adaptation of Stephen King’s short story The Ten O’Clock People, reports THR.

Tom Holland, the horrormeister behind Fright Night and Child’s Play, wrote the script and will direct the chiller, which is eyeing a June start in Baruchel’s hometown of Montreal.

The story tells of a smoker (Baruchel) who returns to his old habit with a cessation drug still in his system, triggering a side effect that reveals a frightening reality in which many people in authority are monsters.

Pascal Borno and Scott Karol’s Conquistador Entertainment will be selling the project at the Berlin’s EFM.

“The Ten O’Clock People” first appeared in King’s 1993 horror collection “Nightmares and Dreamscapes.”

Holland has been developing the project for a while and it almost came together several years ago with Justin Long and Rachel Nichols.

    There is no cessation drug in the original story. But I am excited for this film none the less. I always knew they could make a movie or mini series out of it.
