Lewis Pullman, the young offspring of “Independence Day” actor Bill Pullman and one of the stars of the forthcoming “Top Gun : Maverick”, will star in the latest film adaptation of Stephen King’s “Salem’s Lot”.
Pullman plays the lead role of Ben Mears in the Gary Dauberman written-directed pic. Mears, as those familiar with the source material will recall, is a man who returns to his childhood home of Jerusalem’s Lot in search of inspiration for his next book only to discover his hometown is being preyed upon by a vampire, leading him to band together a ragtag group that will fight the evil presence. David Soul played the role in the ’70s mini-series take.
James Wan is among producers on the film, the latest in a long line of adaptations of best-selling Stephen King novels.
