Director Tom Holland and author Stephen King are reuniting once again to bring another one of King’s works to the big screen.  Deadline reports that Holland, who directed Thinner and The Langoliers, will write and direct an adaptation of King’s short story The Ten O’Clock People.  The story originally appeared in King’s 1993 Nightmares and Dreamscapes collection and centers on a man in Boston “who in trying to kick his smoking habit uncovers a frightening aspect of reality that he plans to extinguish through extreme measures.”

The story was King trying to kick his own smoking habit, and Holland plans on making the film “a modernization” of that original story in the vein of a paranoid suspense piece.  In addition to Thinner and The Langoliers, Holland also direct the original Fright Night and Child’s Play.
