Pet Sematary Remake May Head In Front Of Cameras This May

You might be familiar with a little film that was released last September called It. Promptly demolishing box office expectations, the pic was almost immediately awarded a sequel – and deservedly so.

The success of New Line’s adaptation caught most by surprise, including studio execs, who aren’t exactly the type to let a flavour of the month slide by without exploiting the brand for all it’s worth. As a result, the Stephen King bibliography has now been carefully examined and a remake of the 1989 film Pet Sematary has apparently been deemed necessary.

We reported a few months back that the project will be helmed by Starry Eyes co-directors Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch, based on a screenplay written by Jeff Buhler and David Kajganich. Now, there’s an unconfirmed rumour floating around, via Omega Underground, that the picture will shoot in Toronto – which is also where Andy Muschietti

Best Movie Cats and Kittens from ‘The Godfather’ to ‘Keanu’

Throughout decades of cinematic history, one species has reigned supreme alongside their human co-stars: cats. From classic dramas like The Godfather and The Long Goodbye, to horror films like Pet Sematary and Re-Animator, to action movies and comedies alike, cats have often played a pivotal role in some of history's greatest films. Mankind's cat obsession may have even reached peak cinematic cuteness with the arrival of Peter Atencio's title tabby, Keanu, in which Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele go to great lengths to retrieve their kidnapped kitten. With that in mind, we've put …

  • DailyDead
With a new film adaptation of Pet Sematary in development at Paramount Pictures, interest in what is perhaps Stephen King's most disturbing written work is on the rise, and it's only getting higher, as EW reports that Simon & Schuster will release a new audiobook of King's 1983 novel read by Dexter himself, Michael C. Hall.

EW reports that Hall (Six Feet Under, Dexter, Cold in July) will read an unabridged version of Pet Sematary on the new audiobook, which is scheduled to come out on March 27th.

In a statement to EW, King shared his excitement for the new audiobook:

“Readers have been asking for this audiobook for a very long time. I know the listening experience will be worth the wait with Michael as narrator.”

Disney Eyes Director for Live-Action ‘Sword in the Stone’ Remake

Disney is in talks with director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo to helm its live-action reimagining of the 1963 animated movie “The Sword in the Stone.”

Fresnadillo, a native of Spain, directed 2002’s “Intacto” as his first full-length feature, followed by the 2006 zombie thriller “28 Weeks Later,” the sequel to Danny Boyle’s “28 Days Later.” He also directed the 2011 horror movie “Intruders,” starring Clive Owen and Daniel Bruhl.

The Sword in the Stone” has been in development at Disney since 2015 when “Game of Thrones” writer Bryan Cogman was attached to write the script with Brigham Taylor producing. Louie Provost is overseeing “The Sword in the Stone” for the studio.

The original movie was based loosely on T.H. White’s novel of the same name, in which a 12-year-old orphan named Arthur became king after removing a sword from an anvil in London. It was a box office success with $22 million on a $3 million budget. It was also

Stephen King Says Almost All His Stories Are Being Adapted Right Now

Not only is Stephen King one of the most recognizable names in literature, but he’s also one of the most adapted writers ever to put pen to paper. With over 240 writing credits to his name, filmmakers and showrunners return to his work time and again in an attempt to deliver new takes on classic tales of drama and horror.

While his work remains popular, the name of Stephen King is not always a guarantee of quality when it comes to movies and television. Screenwriters and directors have often taken his source material and delivered interpretations that have been decidedly below par – for example, 2003’s Dreamcatcher, or 1993’s The Tommyknockers. Ultimately, however, these unfortunate attempts only serve to make the successful projects, like It, all the more impressive.

Speaking of which, after seeing how well Pennywise performed at the box office, it sounds like everyone wants to get in on the fun.

The Pet Sematary remake is officially happening and Paramount Pictures has locked down a release date. The studio has officially dated the upcoming re-adaptation of Stephen King's 1983 novel for April 19, 2019. That means this will be the major studio release coming out on Easter weekend that year, which should be fun for horror fans. Especially in regards to the subject matter about resurrection, which ties in nicely to to the holiday. Not so much for those looking for a family-friendly affair, though. Open Road's Playmobil is also coming out that weekend.

There have been rumors of a Pet Sematary remake brewing for quite some time. But with the success of director Andy Muschietti's It this year, studios have been keen to get in on the Stephen King action while the getting is good.

Paramount Announces Release Date For Pet Sematary Remake

Stephen King’s Pet Sematary has been chosen for another new adaptation as the author’s popularity in the eyes of moviegoers continues to skyrocket. This time, the story will be brought to life by Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch, the minds behind Starry Eyes, and according to Deadline, Paramount has the film locked in for an April 19, 2019 release.

For those unfamiliar with Pet Sematary, the story follows the Creed family as they move to a small town in the Northeast which borders a cemetery enabling the buried to return. Head of the family, Louis Creed thinks it’s far better to bring his loved ones back from the dead as murderous simulacra than let them rest in peace – but don’t worry, there’s plenty of interfering supporting characters to impart wisdom.

Pet Sematary was a truly captivating read when I first opened the novel years ago, so getting

New Film Adaptation of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary Slated for April 19th, 2019 Release

  • DailyDead
Readers first learned that "sometimes dead is better" when Stephen King's Pet Sematary was published in 1983, and they'll soon learn that morbid lesson again with Paramount Pictures' new adaptation of the heart-wrenching horror novel, which has received a 2019 theatrical release date.

Multiple sources, including Variety, report that the new Pet Sematary movie is slated for an April 19th, 2019 theatrical release from Paramount.

Variety previously revealed that Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer, the filmmakers behind 2014's Starry Eyes, have been set by Paramount to direct a new take on King's classic 1983 novel about life, death, and the boundary between the two that should never be broken.

Kolsch and Widmyer, who have also directed several key episodes of MTV's Scream TV series, will work from a screenplay by David Kajganich (writer of the upcoming Suspiria remake and 2007's The Invasion) and Matt Greenberg, who has writing credits on other King adaptations such as 1408 and Mercy.

The original “Pet Sematary,” directed by Mary Lambert from a script by King, followed the unraveling of a family after moving into a new home in Maine next to a pet cemetery that contained the power to allow the creatures buried in it to come back from the dead. The original grossed $57 million on an $11 million budget. “Pet Sematary Two,” starring Anthony Edwards, grossed $17 million in 1992.

Pet Sematary” is the first title to be dated for April 19, 2019.
