Jason Clarke in Talks to Play Lead Character in ‘Pet Sematary’ Re-Adaptation



Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch, the writing/directing duo behind Starry Eyes, have been tasked with bringing Pet Sematary back to the screen, with Paramount dating the new adaptation for release on April 19, 2019. Today brings casting news, as THR reports that Jason Clarke (Winchester) is in talks to star.

Clarke would play Louis Creed, played by Dale Midkiff in the 1989 film.

In Pet Sematary, published in 1983 and re-adapted by Jeff Buhler…

“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.

Writer in the horror community since 2008. Owns Eli Roth's prop corpse from Piranha 3D. Has three awesome cats. Still plays with toys.
