Bring your animals inside, production on the Pet Sematary remake has begun

Here's a general rule of thumb, okay people? If someone warns you about the dangers of tampering with an ancient burial ground, just leave it alone. While I admit that the opportunity to resurrect your loved ones is enticing, it's rarely a good idea to buck the laws of nature. I caution you with these words because, early Monday morning, co-director Dennis Widmyer announced on Twitter that production has begun on PET SEMATARY.

You can check out the post for yourself below, which features both Widmyer and co-director Kevin Kolsch clapping down on the first slate of the film:

When Paramount Pictures' remake of Stephen King's PET SEMATARY (1989) shambles into theaters, the film will star Jason Clarke as Dr. Louis Creed. Joining Clarke for the possessed dead horror pic will be John Lithgow as Jud, Creed's older neighbor who warns him of the sour-grounded area's mystrerious secret. Writing the screenplay for the film is NIGHTFLYERS scribe Jeff Buhler. Meanwhile, Lorenzo di Bonaventura (TRANSFORMERS) is on board to produce alongside Mark Vahradian (RED) and Steven Schneider (INSIDIOUS).

Here is the official synopsis for the original film based on Stephen King's PET SEMATARY horror novel, directed by Mary Lambert:

Doctor Louis Creed (Dale Midkiff) moves his family to Maine, where he meets a friendly local named Jud Crandall (Fred Gwynne). After the Creeds' cat is accidentally killed, Crandall advises Louis to bury it in the ground near the old pet cemetery. The cat returns to life, its personality changed for the worse. When Louis' son, Gage (Miko Hughes), dies tragically, Louis decides to bury the boy's body in the same ground despite the warnings of Crandall and Louis' visions of a deceased patient.

PET SEMATARY is expected to bow in theaters beginning on April 5th.
