New Line Cinema will be making a feature-length film adaptation of the Stephen King novel, SALEM’S LOT. Gary Dauberman, the horror writer who made his directorial debut with last year’s Annabelle Comes Home, has closed a deal to direct the feature thriller.

James Wan, Roy Lee, and Mark Wolper will serve as producers from a script written by Dauberman.

Dauberman is responsible for writing some of the biggest horror hits of the past decade. He wrote the scripts for It and It: Chapter Two. He also wrote the scripts for the spinoff films Annabelle, Annabelle Creation and Annabelle Comes Home, as well as The Nun.

Salem’t Lot has never made it to the big screen before. There were two previous television mini-series adaptations. The first was in 1979 and starred David Soul and was directed by Tobe Hooper. The second was in 2004 and starred Rob Lowe.

The film will be based on the book by Stephen King, written in 1975. King’s book centers on an author who returns to his hometown to write about an abandoned mansion in the small town. As he discovers the home has been bought by a mysterious man from Europe, the man also realizes that townspeople are slowly being turned into vampires. The writer bands together with a ragtag group to stop the spread of vampires, with the final confrontation happening in the house with the mysterious man.

We will certainly be watching the progress of this film and will bring you any news as it gets released!
