First up from Deadline comes word tJustin Long - The Ten O'Clock Peoplehat Long is in negotiations to join the Stephen King adaptation, The Ten O’Clock People. Long would star in the lead role of Brandon Pearson.  Written and directed by Tom Holland (Fright Night), The Ten O’Clock People is a short story from King’s collection, “Nightmares and Dreamscapes.”  The story concerns a Bostonian man “who in trying to kick his smoking habit uncovers a frightening aspect of reality that he plans to extinguish through extreme measures.”  Holland has commented on modernizing the tale, skewing it towards a paranoid suspense picture.  Holland also previously directed the King adaptations of Thinner and The Langoliers. Shooting is scheduled to start on September 10th in New York City.

From Variety, McDermott is set to play a Secret Service agent in Antoine Fuqua’s Olympus Has Fallen. McDermott will be taking orders from Angela Bassett, who was previously reported to be playing the head of the agency.  McDermott will have to share the agent spotlight with Butler, who stars as the lead.  The agents go into action when terrorists take over the White House, threatening the safety of the President (Eckhart) and the country.  McDermott can next be seen in The Campaign and The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Also from Variety comes the news that Isaac is in negotiations to reunite with Drive screenwriter, Amini, for his directorial debut, The Two Faces of January. The picture is based on the Patricia Highsmith novel in which the trio of a con artist, his wife and a stranger attempt to escape Athens when one of them gets tangled up in the murder of a police officer.  Mortensen is set as one of the two male leads, possibly leaving the other for Isaac.  The picture is scheduled to go into production at the end of the year.  Isaac will next be seen in The Bourne Legacy, followed by Won’t Back Down, Therese Raquin and the Coens’ Inside Llewyn Davis.
