Rachel Nichols is in talks to star opposite Justin Long in new Stephen King movie The Ten O'Clock People.

The Ten O'Clock People - said to have been written by King during a three-day frenzy driven by nicotine cravings - follows Brandon, played by Justin, a man attempting to give up smoking, who finds one of the side-effects is that he becomes able to see certain people, including his own boss, are actually aliens trying to take over the planet.

Rachel, who has appeared in GI Joe: The Rise Of Cobra and last year starred in Conan The Barbarian, would play a woman who, like Brandon, is able to see the horrible reality of the people around them, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Horror director and scriptwriter Tom Holland has adapted the story from King's 1993 Nightmares And Dreamscapes collection for the big screen and will direct.

The film is due to begin shooting in New York in September.
