A bit more casting news is coming in for the latest Stephen King adaptation from Tom Holland, The Ten O’Clock People. Rachel Nichols has left her G.I Joe team and is now in talks to sign up for active duty on the darker side of the fence.
THR reports that Nichols is in negotiations to join Justin Long in Stephen King’s The Ten O’Clock People. The adaptation of King’s short story, first published in Nightmares and Dreamscapes in 1993, is being directed by Holland, a 1980s horror maven who wrote and directed Fright Night and Child’s Play and previously tackled King’s Thinner and The Langoliers.
The story centers on a man who, when attempting to kick his smoking habit, has his eyes opened to a frightening reality in which many people in authority are monsters. He joins a group of others like him called 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.
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.
