Stephen King’s ‘Salem’s Lot’ Is Coming to the Big Screen!

It may be hard to keep track of all the Stephen King adaptations being made or coming out, but let’s add another one to the list!

‘Salem’s Lot, King’s second published novel, will be remade into a new horror film. The novel tells the story of a writer who returns to his childhood home only to find out that the residents are turning into vampires.

The book will be adapted by James Wan and Gary Dauberman. Both have been involved in various ways with The Conjuring films. In addition to directing blockbuster films like Aquaman and Furious 7, Wan directed the first two Conjuring films and produced the Annabelle and The Nun spin-offs. Dauberman wrote the two Annabelle films and is set to make his directorial debut with the third film.
