“I don’t wanna be buried … in a Pet … Semataaaaryyyy” … Hmm? Oh, sorry. It’s just impossible to see that title without thinking about the classic song from the Ramones. Anyway, the Pet Sematary remake is moving along full-speed ahead, and a new writer has been tapped for the flick!
According to The Hollywood Reporter Matthew Greenberg, who wrote the Stephen King adaptation 1408, is heading back to King territory with his vision of Pet Sematary, replacing the previously announced writing duo of Mike Werb and Michael Colleary.
Originally published in 1983, Stephen King’s tale centered on a family that trades the big city for country life in Maine, then discovers that they have moved near a pet cemetery that rests on an ancient burial ground. Damn those pesky things! They’re everywhere just waiting for someone to come along to zap their whammy curse upon! When the husband’s toddler son is killed in an auto accident, the father takes the boy’s body to the cemetery, where it is resurrected in demonic form. Aw yeah, mama.
Okay, enough talking … it’s fuckin’ Friday, baby! Crank up the sound and sing it with me!
