Actress Rachel Nichols is in talks to join Justin Long in the big-screen adaptation of Stephen King’s The Ten O’Clock People.
Directed by Tom Holland, the film is based on a King short story that appears in his Nightmares and Dreamscapes collection.
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.
