In King’s novel, Dr. Cody is a male character, but I see nothing wrong with the genderswap for the upcoming film. Especially knowing that Woodward is going to be taking on the role. In Salem’s Lot, Ben Mears (Pullman) returns to his childhood home of Jerusalem’s Lot for inspiration for his next book. However, his hometown just to happens to be the feeding group of a bloodthirsty vampire.

New Line has reunited with the producing team from The Conjuring universe to bring Salem’s Lot to life. James Wan, Michael Clear, Roy Lee and Mark Wolper will be serving as producers from Atomic Monster and Vertigo. Director and screenplay writer Gary Dauberman will be heading the film. We don’t have any real news on when this will be hitting theaters, but consider us excited. What do you think about this casting? Let us know in the comments below and on social media!
