As you already see from our title, lovely Rachel Nichols is now in some serious talks to join the upcoming Tom Holland‘s adaptation of Stephen King’s The Ten O’Clock People.
If things work out, Nichols will join previously announced Justin Long, who is set to star as the male lead.
In case you still have no idea what this story is about, we’re here to inform you that the movie will center 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. That guy’s name is Brandon Pearson, and as you already guess – Long is set to portray him.
Brandon will soon join a group of others like him called the Ten O’Clock People, and that’s exactly where he’ll meet a young woman, played by Nichols obviously, who is also able to see the horrible reality of the people around them.
At the end of this report, let us also mention that we’re talking about Stephen King’s short story published in 1993 as part of his “Nightmares and Dreamscapes” collection.
The Ten O’Clock People starts shooting in New York this September.
