Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch, the writing/directing duo behind Starry Eyes, have been tasked with bringing Pet Sematary back to the screen, and we now have a date!
Paramount announced tonight that it will release Widmyer and Kolsch’s new take on Stephen King’s Pet Sematary on April 19, 2019.
Jeff Buhler adapted King’s novel.
In Pet Sematary, published in 1983…
“Louis Creed and his wife Rachel move their two children into a home and soon learn there is a creepy Pet Sematary near their property, where legend has it that animals buried there come back to life. It starts with their cat being run over, and brought back, and it gets much worse when the reanimation attempt turns to humans, who don’t come back exactly as they were before.”
Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Mark Vahradian, and Steven Schneider are producing.
