‘Salem’s Lot’: ‘Annabelle Comes Home’s Gary Dauberman to Direct Stephen King Remake

There are three certainties in life: death, taxes, and adaptations of Stephen King books. Per The Hollywood Reporter, King’s vampire novel ‘Salem’s Lot’ will be the next work to be adapted for the big screen, with ‘It’ and ‘It: Chapter Two’ screenwriter Gary Dauberman serving as both writer and director for New Line Cinema. Dauberman made his directing debut last year with the Conjuring franchise installment ‘Annabelle Comes Home.’

The past few years have been even more robust than usual for Stephen King adaptations, with 2019 alone seeing three separate films released theatrically, including Mike Flanagan’s criminally underseen ‘Doctor Sleep.’ On the small screen as well, 2019 saw an adaptation of ‘In the Tall Grass,’ and January 2020 saw the debut of HBO’s miniseries ‘The Outsider.’ King’s novel ‘The Stand’ will also have a miniseries adaptation, currently set to debut on CBS All Access at some point later this year.
