News IT Director Andy Muschietti Wants to Adapt Stephen King’s ‘Pet Sematary’ Published 2 years ago on August 7, 2017 By Nick Bond Share Tweet It’s big year for Stephen King adaptations heading our way, including The Dark Tower, IT and Mr. Mercedes all set for imminent releases. Today we learned that IT director Andy Muschietti wants to do a modern take on King’s 1989 horror classic Pet Sematary. Speaking with The 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.” The original 1989 horror film follows: “Doctor Louis Creed (Dale Midkiff) moves his family to Maine, where he meets a friendly local named Jud Crandall (Fred Gwynne). After the Creeds’ cat is accidentally killed, Crandall advises Louis to bury it in the ground near the old pet cemetery. The cat returns to life, its personality changed for the worse. When Louis’ son, Gage (Miko Hughes), dies tragically, Louis decides to bury the boy’s body in the same ground despite the warnings of Crandall and Louis’ visions of a deceased patient.” Depending on how well Muschietti ‘s new IT adaptation performs, we could be seeing a new version of Stephen King’s beloved Pet Sematary popping up at some point. Stay tuned to Dark Universe to hear more soon.
