He's battled the Creeper, he's fought alongside John McClane and he made us change the channel during his insipid Apple commercials. Now Justin Long is getting ready for maybe the most noteworthy project of his life: the lead in a Stephen King adaptation!
According to Deadline.com, Long is in talks to join Tom Holland's THE TEN O'CLOCK PEOPLE, which is based on King's short story of the same name.
The story, which can be found in the anthology “Nightmares and Dreamscapes," follows Brandon Pearson, a smoker trying hard to quit for health reasons. He discovers a horrible aspect of reality that only those attempting to quit like him are capable of seeing - that many of the people living among us in positions of power, including many police officers and political figures and even the Vice President of the United States, are in fact inhuman monsters disguised as people.
The film starts shooting on September 10 in New York City. Flick is being produced by Making Ten O’clock Productions and Holland’s Dead Rabbit Films with Nathaniel Kramer and E.J. Meyers producing.
