John W. Lawson has joined the cast of the Pet Sematary prequel as “Stanny” — a leading role said to have been specially rewritten for the actor’s limb difference. In a statement released to Variety, Lawson revealed “when I got the new sides, they had completely written the role for the character to be an amputee. Which was freakin’ awesome. Because it was not [an amputee role before] in any way. That, to me, was a real turning point, not only in casting, but in the mindset of Hollywood.”
THR also reports It’s Gary Dauberman has officially signed on to direct a new film adaptation of Salem’s Lot starring Lewis Pullman (Bill Pullman’s son) as Ben Mears, “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.”
