Paramount’s ‘Pet Sematary’ Remake Creeps in Two Weeks Early



Paramount’s ‘Pet Sematary’ Remake Creeps in Two Weeks Early

Next year, Paramount Pictures will once again raise the dead in a new re-adaptation of Stephen King’s 1983 novel Pet Sematary. Starry Eyes writing/directing duo Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer are crafting the film, which is expected to begin shooting this coming May in Toronto, Canada.

Recently, however, we learned that John Lithgow landed the role as Jud Crandall, while Jason Clarke (Winchester) will play the film’s lead role of Louis Creed.

We just heard that the film has been moved forward by two weeks. Are you excited for the film? Let us know what you think down in the comments.

In the original 1989 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.

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.

Stephen King’s Pet Sematary is set to resurrect all things dead on April 5th, 2019.
