There’s been a slight lull in the amount of Stephen King adaptations recently, but there are a huge amount in the works, including a film version of The Ten O’Clock People, one of the novellas in Nightmares & Dreamscapes. Now Justin Long is in talks to take the lead role in the movie, according to Deadline.
The movie will bring the 1993 story up to date, with Long as Brandon Pearson, who attempts to quit smoking and uncovers unknown and terrifying aspects of reality that you can only see if you’re trying to kick the habit. He realises that many of those in positions of power aren’t really human, and are instead inhuman monsters.
The movie start shooting on September 10th in New York.
