News ‘Salem’s Lot’ Director Gary Dauberman Intends to Stay True to King’s Novel Published 8 months ago on July 3, 2019 By Nick Bond Share Tweet As reported back in April, a new adaptation of Stephen King’s 1975 vampire novel Salem’s Lot is in works at New Line Cinema, with James Wan (The Conjuring) producing and Gary Dauberman (The Nun) writing and executive producing the project. RELATED: JAMES WAN, GARY DAUBERMAN TO WRITE AND PRODUCE NEW ‘SALEM’S LOT’ While talking with our good friends over at THR, Dauberman explained that his intention is to be as true to King’s novel as possible: “I like to be as true to the story as I possibly can until it gets a little too unwieldy for a movie. I’m very, very excited to be a part of that and tackle it. It hasn’t had the big screen treatment yet, which is how I felt about It. It’s so fun to play around with vampires and make something truly scary with vampires. I haven’t seen that in a long, long time, and I’m excited for people to see it.” Along with Wan and Dauberman, Roy Lee and Mark Wolper are attached to the project as producers. At this point, no director has been announced. Synopsis from the book: “Author Ben Mears returns to ‘Salem’s Lot to write a book about a house that has haunted him since childhood only to find his isolated hometown infested with vampires. While the vampires claim more victims, Mears convinces a small group of believers to combat the undead.” Dark Universe will continue to keep you posted as more details are announced.
