Adrien Brody to star in new Stephen King TV series
Jerusalem's Lot is a prequel to his popular 1975 vampire novel Salem's Lot.
Adrien Brody is to star in a TV adaptation of Stephen King’s 1978 short story Jerusalem’s Lot.
The Academy-Award winning actor will play Captain Charles Boone who relocates to the sleepy town of Preacher’s Corner, Maine after the sudden death of his wife.
Once there, he’s forced to confront the dark, bloody secrets that have plagued his troubled family for centuries.
Siblings Jason and Peter Filardi, who previously wrote the screenplay for the 2004 Salem’s Lot miniseries, have been tapped to serve as both showrunners and executive producers.
The series, which was ordered by US network Epix, will consist of ten episodes and is due to enter production in May 2020.
It’s not yet clear who will be joining Brody in the rest of the cast.
“Of course, when it comes to horror, it doesn’t get any better or more masterful than Stephen King. We’re thrilled to be the home to this incredible show,” said Epix President Michael Wright.
A specific release date has yet to be announced but it’s expected to premiere sometime in Autumn 2020.
