Salem's Lot" is a new film adaptation of Stephen King's novel that has been delayed and possibly shelved by Warner Bros.
The film was originally scheduled for release in 2022 but has been pushed back to 2023 and then pulled entirely.
There is a rumor that the film may bypass theaters and go straight to the streaming service Max due to the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike.
Stephen King, the author of the novel, has seen the film and praised it on Twitter, describing it as "muscular and involving" with a "slow-burn" feel.
The film is said to have the atmosphere of "Old Hollywood" and includes some diversions from the book but is overall faithful to the source material.
The reason for the film's delay and potential shelving is unclear, but it may be due to concerns about its slow-burn approach or possible quality issues.
It is unknown when the film will be released, but it would have been ideal for Halloween.
This will be the first feature film adaptation of "Salem's Lot," which has previously been adapted into miniseries in 1979 and 2004. The new film stars Lewis Pullman, Makenzie Leigh, Bill Camp, Pilou Asbaek, Alfre Woodard, and William Sadler.
