News Jason Clarke in Talks to Play Louis Creed in Paramount’s ‘Pet Sematary’ Remake Published 1 year ago on April 16, 2018 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Starry Eyes writing/directing team Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer are tackling a modern adaptation of Stephen King’s 1983 novel Pet Sematary for Paramount Pictures, which is expected to begin shooting this coming May in Toronto, Canada. Today a new report via THR states that Jason Clarke (Winchester) is in discussions to play the film’s lead role of Louis Creed. Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian are producing, along with Alexandra Loewy executive producing. Jeff Buhler and David Kajganich penned the script based on the horror novel by King. In the original film: “After moving into their new home the Creed family’s cat is killed after wondering onto the highway. Jud an elderly neighbor shows Louis, the father, to an isolated hill behind the local Pet Cemetery and instructs him to bury the deceased feline there. Not long after the cat reappears at the Creed home, only he is not the same. The docile cat is now vicious and destructive. When their youngest son meets with a fatal accident, the distraught Louis buries him in the same location hoping to revive him. Unfortunately he unleashes far more than he had bargained for.” Stephen King’s Pet Sematary is set to resurrect all things dead on April 19, 2019.
