The screen adaptation of the classic horror novel by Stephen King has got its release date revoked.
Poor old 'Salem's Lot' has not a very lucky production as of late. The movie was originally meant to release on September 9 of this year. However, due to Covid-related issues in post-production the release date was then pushed back to April 2023.
But now news has come out that the horror, based on the 1975 novel by the acclaimed author King, is now without a release date due to reshuffles at Warner Bros.
It's thought that the film company, which has made some major changes recently, is now debating how to release the film. However, new CEO David Zaslav favours theatrical releases so it's believed the film will still get one eventually.
'Salem's Lot's plot follows an author, Ben Mears, returning to his hometown to write his next novel, only to discovery it's been taken over by vampires. Gary Dauberman (The 'Anabelle' series) directs the upcoming flick. James Wan ('The Conjuring') produced the film.
The film stars Lewis Pullman and 'Game of Thrones' star Pilau Asbaek. Makenzie Leigh, Bill Camp, Spencer Treat Clark and John Benjamin Hickey also star.
The novel was originally adapted in 1979 into a successful two-part miniseries. A sequel was released in 1985 titled 'A Return to Salem's Lot'. It was adapted again in 2004 into a another, separate miniseries starring Rob Lowe.
'Salem's Lot' currently has no release date. Stay tuned on our website for further updates.
