Warner Bros. has confirmed this afternoon that their new take on Stephen King‘s vampire story, “Salem’s Lot” is coming exclusively to theaters later this year, currently set for September 9, 2022.
James Wan (The Conjuring, Aquaman) is producing Salem’s Lot 2022 for Warner Bros. and New Line, with Gary Dauberman (It, The Nun, Annabelle Comes Home) writing the script and also directing.
“Haunted by an incident from his childhood, author Ben Mears returns to his hometown of Jerusalem’s Lot in search of inspiration for his next book, only to discover the town is being preyed upon by a bloodthirsty vampire and his Loyal servant.”
The original 70s television mini-series still holds up as one of the most frightening vampire depictions of all time. The 2004 Rob Lowe remake was less memorable. With Wan producing this remake has the potential to be something really special.
The cast includes Lewis Pullman, Makenzie Leigh, Alfre Woodard, Bill Camp, John Benjamin Hickey, Nicholas Crovetti, Jordan Preston Carter, William Sadler, Spencer Treat Clark, Cade Woodward, Debra Christofferson, and Pilou Asbaek.
