Those of you who loved both Stephen King’s fan favorite novel Pet Sematary and the 1989 film of the same name will be thrilled to hear that Paramount Pictures is moving forward with modern take.
According to recent online reports, Paramount picked up two up-and-coming filmmakers to direct Pet Sematary, a dark story which takes place in Maine about life, death, and the boundary between the two that should never be crossed.
When the Creeds move into a beautiful old house in rural Maine, it all seems too good to be true: physician father, beautiful wife, charming little daughter, adorable infant son—and now an idyllic home. As a family, they’ve got it all…right down to the friendly cat.
But the nearby woods hide a blood-chilling truth—more terrifying than death itself…and hideously more powerful.
The Creeds are going to learn that sometimes dead is better.
Starry Eye’s directors Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer will helm the upcoming King adaptation from a screenplay by David Kajganich and Matt Greenberg. Both directors are also known for directing several important episodes of MTV’s Scream TV series.
Other directors who were considering to direct Pet Sematary included ITAndy Muschietti and 47 Meters Down helmer Johannes Roberts. Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Steven Schneider are currently attached to produce the film.
