Hauer sprouts fangs for "Salem's"

Ruger Hauer (who seems to be on the verge of a bit of a comeback) has been signed for the "Salem’s Lot" mini-series remake to film in Australia. According to Zap2it, Hauer will play Kurt Barlow, an antiques dealer and vampire. Salem’s Lot will also star Rob Lowe, Andre Braugher, James Cromwell and Samantha Mathis. Peter Filardi (Flatliners) wrote the script. Funnily enough, Hauer can also soon be seen in the second of two "Dracula 2000" sequels, playing, ahem, Dracula.
