Stephen King’s novel ‘Pet Sematary’ was adapted for the big-screen back in 1989 and went on to earn its budget back five times over. Three years later it spawned a sequel and despite it being directed by the original’s Mary Lambert, it was widely considered inferior and the franchise met its end. Now comes the news from Variety that 28 Weeks Later director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo has signed on to helm a new adaptation for Paramount.
Pet Sematary tells the story of a family that moves in to their new home in Maine, only to find that a certain kind of evil lurks in the mysterious cemetery in the woods behind their home. There is no release date set for this new adaptation, but we here at Morbidly Amusing will certainly keep you up to date as new news rolls in.
For now, check out the trailer for the original Pet Semetary below.
