It's hard to believe that it going on thirty years since PET SEMATARY was first released into theaters. Based on Stephen King’s novel, the 1989 film brought to life some haunting imagery that Horror fans will never forget. There has been talk of a possible remake for years and today we bring you an update.
According to Variety, filmmakers Kevin Kolsch and Dennies Widmyer have been selected by Paramount Pictures to remake PET SEMATARY. The directing duo are responsible for 2014’s STARRY EYES. They have also directed some big episodes from MTV’s SCREAM series.
The screenplay will be written by David Kajganich, who penned the upcoming SUSPIRIA remake, and Matt Greenberg, who is credited for the writing of the Stephen King adaptations 1408 and MERCY.
The 1989 version of PET SEMATARY starred Dale Midkiff, Fred Gwynne, and Denise Crosby. Then in 1992 a sequel followed starring Edward Furlong and once again directed by Mary Lambert.
PET SEMATARY synopsis:
"When the Creeds move into a beautiful old house in rural Maine, it all seems too good to be true: physician father, beautiful wife, charming little daughter, adorable infant son—and now an idyllic home. As a family, they’ve got it all…right down to the friendly cat.
But the nearby woods hide a blood-chilling truth—more terrifying than death itself...and hideously more powerful.
The Creeds are going to learn that sometimes dead is better."
