Remake of Stephen King’s Horror Classic ‘Pet Sematary’ Aiming for a May Shoot



Pet Sematary Cat

Last we heard, Starry Eyes writing/directing duo Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer were about to take on another remake of Stephen King’s 1983 novel Pet Sematary for Paramount Pictures.

The folks over at Omega Underground are reporting today that the project is moving forward with an expected shoot date this coming May in Toronto, Canada.

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.

As soon as we hear details on the casting, you can bet we’ll have it for you right here. Stay tuned to Dark Universe for all the latest on the new Pet Sematary.

Stephen King’s Pet Sematary is set to resurrect all things dead on April 19, 2019.
