‘Salem’s Lot’ – Official Details Reveal That the New Movie Is Set in the 1970s

The marketing campaign hasn’t yet begun but it looks like Warner Bros. is still sticking to the September 9, 2022 release date for Salem’s Lot, their brand new big screen adaptation of Stephen King‘s classic horror novel. James Wan produced for Warner Bros. and New Line, with Gary Dauberman (It, The Nun, Annabelle Comes Home) writing the script and also directing.

So what’s the latest on the movie? WB sent over some new info over the weekend, most notably revealing that the new Salem’s Lot movie is set in the decade the book was written.

Salem’s Lot is “set circa 1975 (when King’s book was first published),” the press release notes. The tale is synonymous with the ’70s, as that’s also when the original adaptation was made.

What else do we know about this latest Stephen King adaptation? Read on for details and expect the trailer for the new Salem’s Lot movie sometime soon. Hopefully very, very soon!

In Salem’s Lot, “Haunted by an incident from his childhood, author Ben Mears returns to his hometown of Jerusalem’s Lot in search of inspiration for his next book, only to discover the town is being preyed upon by a bloodthirsty vampire and his loyal servant.”

The cast includes Lewis Pullman, Makenzie Leigh, Alfre Woodard, Bill Camp, John Benjamin Hickey, Nicholas Crovetti, Jordan Preston Carter, William Sadler, Spencer Treat Clark, Cade Woodward, Debra Christofferson, and Pilou Asbaek.

Dauberman’s creative team includes director of photography Michael Burgess (Annabelle Comes Home, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It), production designer Marc Fisichella (Ma, The Maze Runner), editor Luke Ciarrocchi (Glass, Split), composers Nathan Barr (The House with a Clock in Its Walls, The Great) and Lisbeth Scott (American Son, Tumble Leaf), costume designer Virginia Johnson (The New Mutants, Mile 22), and first assistant director Jeffrey “JP” Wetzel (Malignant, Annabelle Comes Home).

Fresh off Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Tobe Hooper directed the very first adaptation of Salem’s Lot back in 1979, and a new mini-series followed in its wake more recently, in 2004. Below, you can hear our weekly Stephen King podcast, The Losers’ Club, break down King’s original novel.
