The upcoming New Line film adaptation of Stephen King’s Salem’s Lot casts Cade Woodward, best known as John Krasinski’s young son in A Quiet Place.
New Line Cinema’s upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s Salem’s Lot has cast actor Cade Woodward, best known for his heartbreaking role in A Quiet Place as Beau Abbott, the young son of John Krasinski and Emily Blunt. Salem’s Lot is based on King’s classic 1975 horror novel of the same name and tells the story of Ben Mears (Lewis Pullman), a writer who returns to his childhood hometown seeking inspiration for a new novel. Mears soon finds that the town, Jerusalem’s Lot, is being taken over by a vampire. He must then work together with an unlikely group to reclaim the town from evil. New Line’s Salem’s Lot is the latest adaptation of King’s novel; previous versions include the 1979 and 2004 miniseries and the 1995 BBC radio drama.
Per THR, young actor Cade Woodward has joined Salem’s Lot in the role of Ralph Glick, the brother of Danny Glick (Nicholas Crovetti, best known as one of Nicole Kidman’s troubled twin sons on Big Little Lies), who falls prey to the vampire and begins to help turn the rest of the town. Also joining the cast is Jordan Preston Carter (DMZ, The Haves and the Have Nots) as Mark Petrie, a young boy who helps fight the forces of darkness.
