Andy Muschietti is Eager to Make a New Adaptation of ‘Pet Sematary’



Pet Sematary

It was reported back in August that IT‘s Andy Muschietti expressed his interest in creating a new adaptation of Stephen King’s 1989 horror classic Pet Sematary.

While speaking with Toronto Sun, Muschietti revealed that “we’re huge fans of Pet Sematary. If we can get our hands on that and do the Pet Sematary we want to do, that will be something. One day, maybe.

Andy and Barbara Muschietti talked with the good people over at EW this week, once again expressing their desire to adapt King’s 1983 novel.

My affection for Pet Sematary will go on until I die,” Andy Muschietti told the site. “I will always dream about the possibility of making a movie.”

Barbara added, “We’ll see who gets to it first. But it is the first Stephen King book that we read, and it’s something that has been a great love, because it is possibly King’s most personal book. You can imagine his young family. What will you do to be able to keep your family? How far would you go? I really hope we can do it. But if we do it, we have to do it justice, like we did with IT. The versions we read in the past years, the scripts we’ve read, have not been, in our opinion, representative of the book.

We truly feel that the Muschietti siblings are the only two people who could do it any real justice. Stay tuned for more on this story as it happens.
