Stephen King’s Salem’s Lot Reboot Confirmed for Theatrical Release This Fall

April 23, 2022

While Stephen King fans are yet to see any footage from the latest adaptation of Salem’s Lot, the movie has landed itself a release date of September 9 exclusively in cinemas and not on HBO Max as originally expected. The classic tale of vampires taking over a small town is one of King’s best-known works and has already been adapted for television twice, once in 1979 in the best-known version directed by Tobe Hooper and starring David Soul, and again in 2004, starring Rob Lowe and Donald Sutherland. The latest iteration will be the first time the story has been produced for a big screen release.
