There’s no greater joy we get around here than reporting that a much beloved director is getting back in the saddle and readying himself to return to feature films with a brand new terror tale. The fact that it’s based on a Stephen King story to boot is the icing on the proverbial cake.
Director Tom Holland (Fright Night, Child’s Play) has headed into King territory before with “The Langoliers” and Thinner, and now he’s set to take the reins on a big screen adaptation of the short story “The Ten O’Clock People” from Nightmares and Dreamscapes.
“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 remarked that “this film will be a modernization of the original short story, a paranoid suspense piece.”
The Ten O’Clock People will begin filming this summer and is produced by Making Ten O’Clock Productions and Holland’s Dead Rabbit Films. Holland returned to directing in 2007 with his entry into the acclaimed Masters of Horror series for Showtime, “We All Scream for Ice Cream.” Currently he is writing and directing Twisted Tales, a series of shorts for FEARnet.
