An actor I thoroughly enjoy watching in anything he happens to be starring in is ‘Jeepers Creepers’ and ‘Drag Me to Hell’ star Justin Long (below). The 34-year old actor is being tapped for the lead role in Tom Holland’s adaption of ‘The Ten O’Clock People’. The new flick is based on the short story of the same name penned by horror author Stephen King which was featured in his ‘Nightmares & Dreamscapes’ collection. The story which revolves around Brandon Pearson, a cigarette smoker who attempts to quit his habit and faces unexpected consequences, is notoriously similar to that of sci-fi author Ray Nelson’s 1963 short story ‘Eight O’Clock in the Morning’. Nelson’s story was of course turned into cult sci-fi feature ‘They Live’ which was released in 1988 and helmed by John Carpenter. Let’s hope Holland can modernise the script enough so this doesn’t simply come across too much like an eye-rolling remake of ‘They Live’.
