Theater-Only Release Date Confirmed For ‘Salem’s Lot’

Stephen King’s classic Salem’s Lot will finally get a big-screen (and only a big-screen) treatment this fall.

Warner Bros. this week confirmed that the much-desired reboot of the horror master’s 1975 vampire novel will land only in theaters Sept. 9, according to  a report on

It had been reported that the remake would also be shown on HBO Max at a later date, but that no longer seems to be the case. The bestseller had been adapted as a two-part TV mini-series back in 1979–starring David Soul and James Mason–but now it will shine on the Silver Screen for the first time.

Salem’s Lot–as all horror fans know–follows author Ben Mears as he returns to his childhood home of Jerusalem’s Lot, looking for inspiration for his new book. But what he finds is his hometown “being preyed upon by a bloodthirsty vampire.”

The remake–written and directed by Gary Dauberman–stars Lewis Pullman as Mears, Pilou Asbaek as Richard Straker, John Benjamin Hickey as Fr. Donald Callahan, Makenzie Leigh as Susan Norton, Bill Camp as Matt Burke, Spencer Treat Clark as Mike Ryerson, Alfre Woodward as Dr. Cody, Jordan Preston Carter as Mark Petrie, Nicholas Crovetti as Danny Glick, Cade Woodward as Ralph Glick and William Sadler in an undisclosed role.
