Justin Long (“He’s Just Not That Into You”, “Going The Distance”) is apparently in negotiations for the lead role in “The Ten O’clock People”, according to Deadline.com.
The flick is based on a Stephen King short story, which has been adapted by Tom Holland, who is also set to direct.
If cast, Long would play Brandon Pearson – a smoker trying to quit who encounters an unknown and terrifying aspect of reality during his detox process.
“The Ten O’clock People” has been taken from King’s collection of short stories, “Nightmares and Dreamscapes”, and will start shooting on September 10 in New York.
Making Ten O’clock Productions and Dead Rabbit Films are attached to produce with Nathaniel Kramer and E.J. Meyers also attached to the project.
