I don't want to be reburied in a Pet Sematary

02.03.2011

Just about this time last year, we told you that Matthew Greenberg (1408) was working on a script for a PET SEMATARY remake. Now we get word from the LA Times that Greenberg has turned in his script to Paramount and the studio is on the search for a "high-level director" to get the project on the fast-track.

It's unclear at this time whether the film is a remake or reboot or what. The original 1989 film was fairly faithful to the book (it was written by Stephen King himself) so assuming this version doesn't veer too far from the source material, it'll be a straightforward retelling of the story - ancient Indian burial ground brings the dead buried there back to life in evil ways.

PET SEMATARY is just another example of Stephen King's renaissance in Hollywood. After a few years when very few of King's books were being adapted to films, THE DARK TOWER, THE STAND, IT and this film are all in various forms of development around Hollywood.

The question, of course, begs to be asked: who should play Zelda? Christian Bale?

Good Luck casting a new Judd Crandel, or baby Gabe for that matter. However anybody you cast as the little girl can't possibly be worse the one in the original, can it?

Can they just remake the sequel? That's the one that needs some work.

Also kudos on the Ramones reference

Pet Sematary is a great book but the 1989 film adaptation was a joke. I mean seriously, it bordered on comedy instead of horror. King wrote the script, wtf went wrong? I'm open to seeing another version.

One of King's best books! I may be biased here but I say bring on anything and everything King! This flick needs to be R, and gotta be hella faithful but realistic. That's what made the books so scary is how we can all relate to losing somebody. The ability to bring them back with a pretty big catch is terrifying! Legendary story

Honestly, I there's a few other of King's stories that I would rather see than this get a remake.

It seems that every couple of articles now is someone wanting to adapt one of Stephen King's books.

Remakes are like cover songs.

Occasionally, very rarely, there's a cover that's actually good, and sometimes, even more rarely, its actually better than the original.

But mostly, they suck.
