Pet Sematary screenwriter says goal is to make “one of the scariest Stephen King adaptations ever”

The recent spate of Stephen King adaptations is set to continue next year with the release of It: Chapter Two, In the Tall Grass, and a remake of the author’s bestseller Pet Sematary.

King himself was initially concerned that the 1983 book was too dark and bleak for publication, and screenwriter Jeff Buhler (The Midnight Meat Train) has revealed to Dread Central that he and directors Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch (Starry Eyes) are looking to make “one of the scariest Stephen King adaptations ever” by capturing the tone of King’s novel.

“Dennis and Kevin and I really connected around the idea of bringing the story back to the source material, to find a modern telling of the book that really spoke to some of the big scenes and big moments that Stephen King had originally written,” said Buhler. “As much as all of us are huge fans of the original film,

Bad CGI Sharks Trailer Is the Ultimate Answer to Bad Shark Movies
Bruce the Shark in 1975's great white classic Jaws may have looked a little on the fake side, but at least he had a lot of personality. That can't be said for the millions of CGI sharks that have been dumped on audiences at an expedient rate over the past decade. And now, one filmmaking team has set out to deliver the ultimate answer to all those bad shark movies with Bad CGI Sharks. It's exactly what it sounds like.

While Jaws may have been a masterpiece, nearly ever shark infested thriller that has arrived in its wake is schlocky dreck that drowns most audience members in a sea of craptacular chum. Jaws 2 celebrates it's 40th anniversary this year, and while it has its fans, it was the first in what would be a tidal wave of almost unwatchable shark themed movies. And as the story lines keep getting worse,

Trailer Breakdown: On Venice’s Eve, The Witches Are Back in ‘Suspiria’ Marketing Blitz

It’s been a while since a horror movie’s remake achieved the levels of anticipation like the kind Luca Guadagnino’s forthcoming remake of Suspiria has wracked up this last year. Since its official announcement two years ago, many questions and equal the trepidation about what the Call Me by Your Name director could possibly bring to the Dario Argento classic have been raised, from the general “Why does it need to be remade” all remakes are understandably haunted by and theories about what techniques and throwbacks would be invoked to replicate the original’s iconic visuals and Goblin soundtrack. When the first teaser debuted earlier this summer, many’s fears were quelled and replaced with a new possibility: not only could the film actually be good, it now had the potential to be equal to its inspiration, perhaps even… surpass it.

Pet Sematary Remake Finds Its Very Scary Zelda

Pet Sematary Remake Finds Its Very Scary Zelda
Pet Sematary remake screenwriter Jeff Buhler promised that the movie is going to be one of the scariest Stephen King adaptations in history back in May of this year. It appears that the screenwriter wasn't kidding because it's just been revealed that the remake has cast its Zelda character. Fans of the original movie have been waiting to see if the sister with spinal meningitis was going to make a return ever since the new film was announced. While Zelda only had a brief part in the original, she left her mark on horror history.

Young actress Alyssa Brooke Levine has been cast as Rachel Creed's sister Zelda in the Pet Sematary remake. The 13-year old actress is playing a younger version of the character than was previously seen in Mary Lambert's 1989 adaptation. Andrew Hubatsek played the role, and while brief, his scene is one of the more memorable.

John Lithgow to Play Roger Ailes in Fox News Movie (Exclusive)

  • Variety
John Lithgow to Play Roger Ailes in Fox News Movie (Exclusive)
John Lithgow will play Roger Ailes, the Fox News chief who masterfully exploited the country’s political divisions to rise to the top of the cable news heap, in Annapurna’s upcoming drama about the sexual harassment scandal that ended his career.

The Tony and Emmy winner joins a cast of heavyweights that includes Nicole Kidman, Margot Robbie, and Charlize Theron. The currently untitled film focuses on Ailes’ downfall, zeroing in on a group of female employees who bucked the culture of sexism at the network to oust the news baron from power. Kidman will play Gretchen Carlson, the Fox News anchor who sued Ailes for harassment in July 2016, and Charlize Theron will portray Megyn Kelly, a star at the network whose decision to go public with her own story of abuse was seen as a key turning point. Robbie’s character is said to be a fictional Fox News associate producer.

The Exorcist showrunner to script Stephen King adaptation The Tommyknockers

Back in march it was announced that James Wan (The Conjuring) and Roy Lee (It) are teaming to produce a feature adaptation of Stephen King’s novel The Tommyknockers, and now comes word that the project has found a writer.

Variety is reporting that Jeremy Slater, showrunner on The Exorcist TV series, is set to script the adaptation of the 1987 sci-fi horror novel, which takes place in a small town in Maine (surprisingly) where the residents are granted enhanced abilities and violent tendencies after a gas escapes from a long-buried alien craft.

The Tommyknockers was previously adapted as a 1993 miniseries starring Jimmy Smits as Jim Gardener, a man immune to the gas thanks to a metal plate in his head, who has to save the day.

Pet Sematary Remake Wraps with First Look at John Lithgow as Jud Crandall

Pet Sematary Remake Wraps with First Look at John Lithgow as Jud Crandall
Expect the Stephen King Renaissance of 2017 to resurge with a vengeance in 2019 with It: Chapter Two and a new remake of Pet Sematary already considered 2 of next year's most hotly-anticipated horror movies. The later has just wrapped filming outside of Montreal; the news was announced by Pet Sematary's assistant director Beau Ferris on Instagram and circulated by CinePhellas on Twitter, along with a photo of John Lithgow.

Hulu Renews Castle Rock For A Second Season

It’s turning into a bit of a golden age for Stephen King. It cleaned up at the box office last year, with the sequel currently filming with an all-star cast. On top of that, there’s an interesting sounding adaptation of Pet Sematary currently being shot and a fresh take on The Dark Tower in development. Given all these lucrative King-related projects, then, it’s perhaps no surprise that Hulu has officially renewed psych-horror hit Castle Rock for a second season.

The show, which is currently midway through its first season, is based on characters and settings from various Stephen King stories. For example, we have Diane “Jackie” Torrance, the niece of the famously axe-happy former (and current and future) resident of the Overlook Hotel, Bill Skarsgard as an inmate of Shawshank State Penitentiary and Alan Pangborn, a King character who’s cropped up in the The Dark Half,
