Salem’s Lot Movie Coming from Conjuring Universe Filmmakers


The Conjuring Universe collaborators James Wan and Gary Dauberman are teaming up to make a Salem’s Lot movie based on the Stephen King vampire novel, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The book was Stephen King’s second.

Dauberman will write the script and serve as executive producer. Wan will produce along with Roy Lee and Mark Wolper.

The 1975 novel is official described as follows: “Ben Mears has returned to Jerusalem’s Lot in hopes that exploring the history of the Marsten House, an old mansion long the subject of rumor and speculation, will help him cast out his personal devils and provide inspiration for his new book. But when two young boys venture into the woods, and only one returns alive, Mears begins to realize that something sinister is at work—in fact, his hometown is under siege from forces of darkness far beyond his imagination. And only he, with a small group of allies, can hope to contain the evil that is growing within the borders of this small New England town.”

The trade adds that a director is not yet on board.

While a Salem’s Lot movie has not yet been made, the book was previously turned into a two-part television series in 1979 (which screened in cinemas in some countries). A sequel series, A Return to Salem’s Lot, debuted in 1987. TNT also adapted the book into a 2004 miniseries starring Rob Lowe.
