Pet Sematary: Jackson White Cast as Young Jud Crandall in Prequel Film

The first casting details for writer/director Lindsey Beer‘s new Pet Sematary film for Paramount Pictures have been revealed this week. That’s right, Jackson White (The Space Between) has been cast as young Jud Crandall in the upcoming prequel, which is scheduled to shoot this August.

The original 1989 film, directed by Mary Lambert, begins when:

Louis Creed and his family move into a new home and try to settle in. However, strange things happen after Louis buries his daughter’s cat in an ancient burial ground in the forest behind their house.

The film is being produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian.
