After losing Justin Long last summer, The Ten O’Clock People has been seeking a new leading man.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jay Baruchel star of This is the End and writer of the upcoming Randoms Acts of Violence (based on the comic book of the same name) has signed on to star.
Directed by Tom Holland and based on Stephen King’s short story publised in 1993 as part of his “Nightmares and Dreamscapes” collection, The Ten O’Clock People follows Brandon Pearson, who in trying to kick his smoking habit uncovers a frightening aspect of reality he plans to extinguish through extreme measures.
The film is being shopped at the EFM in Berlin. Hopefully with Baruchel on board, this long-mooted project will now gain some traction.
