We still don't know when the 'Salem's Lot' remake is coming our way. But we now know it's probably going to be worth the wait.
Speaking to ComicBook.com, star of the upcoming horror Lewis Pullman gave us some insight into what to expect.
"[Gary] Dauberman is really keen on doing justice to the book," the star said about the film's director. "But also, the previous adaptation was a two-parter. Because it’s such a hefty book and there are so many different moving parts and so many characters. So there are some parts where Gary had to press and find what was really at the heart of the movie to keep in. But, for the most part, he’s really true to the book and keeping a lot of the original dialogue in there."
He added that Dauberman is "a Stephen King hound dog so he doesn’t wanna do Stephen dirty."
Pullman, who plays main protagonist Ben Mears in the upcoming movie, had a lot to say on the approach the director was taking for the project. "I think it’s in good hands, Gary’s a really smart guy who has a keen eye for things.
"I think, not just lean on the jump scares, but lean on the more conceptual and visual things that, rather than a shock that fades out of your body in the next five minutes. Something that’s more visual, like an imprint that burnt into your retinas as a disturbing image that you’ll wake up in the middle of the night that you can’t shake out of your head."
The movie had an original release date for September of this year. However, due to Covid-related issues in post-production, the release pushed back to April 2023.
But in August, the horror, based on the 1975 novel by the acclaimed author King, lost its release date.
Pullman stars alongside 'Game of Thrones' actor Pilau Asbaek. Makenzie Leigh, Bill Camp, Spencer Treat Clark and John Benjamin Hickey also star.
'Salem's Lot' currently has no release date. Stay tuned on our website for further updates.
