One of the most exciting things I saw at CinemaCon in April was a trailer for the new film adaptation of Fate of Salem† It looks like it’s going to be a great and freaky movie! That trailer has yet to be released, in fact nothing has actually been released for the movie yet. There has been no marketing at all.
But the first image has been released. It serves as the cover for the movie tie-in edition of King’s classic novel.
Lewis Pullman †Bad times in El Royale, Top Gun: Maverick) stars in the film, and he will take on the role of author Ben Mears, “a man who returns to his childhood home in Jerusalem’s Lot in search of inspiration for his next book, only to find that his hometown is under attack by a vampire, leading him to team up with a ragtag group that will fight the evil presence.
The movie also has stars Jordan Preston Carter as Mark Petrie, Alfred Woodard as Dr. Cody, Makenzie Leigh as Susan Norton, John Benjamin Hickey as Father Callahan, William Sadler in an as yet unannounced role, and it was directed by Gary Dauberman †It†
Fate of Salem will be released on September 9, 2022. You can check out our response to the footage we saw at CinemaCon here.
