Stephen King's The Ten O'Clock People is to be adapted for cinema.

Deadline reports that Child's Play helmer Tom Holland has been appointed as director on the horror project, which is based on a short story from the author's Nightmares & Dreamscapes collection.

The Ten O'Clock People follows a man who tries to kick a smoking habit only to discover a terrible aspect of reality that only recovering cigarette addicts are capable of seeing.

"[This story] was Stephen trying to deal with his cigarette jones and the fairly new no-smoking laws back in the '90s. This film will be a modernisation of the original short story, a paranoid suspense piece," said Holland.

Ron Howard is currently working to bring King's bestselling Dark Tower to cinema, while remakes of Carrie and The Stand are also in the pipeline.

Holland and King have previously collaborated on the movie adaptations of The Langoliers and Thinner.
