New Pet Sematary image features Jud and the Deadfall

The first trailer for STARRY EYES directing duo Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer's upcoming remake of Stephen King's PET SEMATARY was released earlier this year and today we have an all-new image for you to check out. It features John Lithgow's new Jud Crandall standing astride the notorious deadfall that acts as a wall of sorts between the actual Pet Sematary and the Micmac burial grounds beyond.

Check it out below!

I'm a massive fan of not only King's original novel but director Mary Lambert's original film as well. As you might imagine then, I'm really looking forward to checking out this newly renovated Pet Sematary come April. And if I have to get by with pics of old men standing out in the middle of the woods until then, it'll work for me.  

Directed by Kolsch and Widmyer, PET SEMATARY stars Jason Clarke as Louis Creed, Amy Seimetz as Rachel Creed, Hugo and Lucas Lavoie as Gage Creed, Jeté Laurence as Ellie Creed, Obssa Ahmed as Victor Pascow, Alyssa Brooke Levine as Zelda, and Lithgow as Jud. 

Dr. Louis Creed (Clarke), who, after relocating with his wife Rachel (Seimetz) and their two young children from Boston to rural Maine, discovers a mysterious burial ground hidden deep in the woods near the family’s new home. When tragedy strikes, Louis turns to his unusual neighbor, Jud Crandall (Lithgow), setting off a perilous chain reaction that unleashes an unfathomable evil with horrific consequences.

King wrote the screenplay adaptation for the '89 film himself. This time the script was written by Jeff Buhler, who previously wrote the Clive Barker adaptation THE MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN, developed the George R.R. Martin story Nightflyers into a television series, and wrote a remake of JACOB'S LADDER that has yet to be released. We'll let you know once we hear more on the remake but until then let us know what you think thus far below!
