Rachel Nichols to join “Ten O'Clock People” Stephen King adaptation

PanARMENIAN.Net - Rachel Nichols is in negotiations to join Justin Long in Stephen King's The Ten O'Clock People, The Hollywood Reporter said.

The adaptation of King's short story, first published in Nightmares and Dreamscapes in 1993, is being directed by Tom Holland. Holland, a 1980s horror maven who wrote and directed Fright Night and Child's Play, 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.

Nathaniel Kramer and E.J. Meyers are producing.

Nichols, repped by UTA, played Scarlett in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and was the female lead in last year’s Conan the Barbarian.
