Not to long ago it was announced that Face/Off scribes Mike Werb and Michael Colleary have been tapped to disinter Pet Sematary for Paramount Pictures, a remake of the classic Stephen King adaptation (full news). Now rumors are circulating that the film is being remade specifically for George Clooney! Read on for the details.
Mediasharx received an unconfirmed scoop regarding the upcoming Paramount remake of Stephen King’s horror thriller Pet Sematary. Here’s a clip…
“A writer friend, [name withheld], has won the jewel gig of reworking Stephen King – Dicky Bachman’s ‘Pet Sematary’ book/film for the Alphaville crowd, he’s got that and a film version of the book ‘The Book of Skulls’ lined up. But ‘Pet Sematary’ sounds good, and it’s being written as a potential vehicle for George Clooney!. Yep, they want Clooney to play Doc Cage. When I first heard it, I was a little concerned but after thinking about it I realised it might just worked. That charisma, that versatilty he seems to have as an actor….he might make it one remake worth watching.“
