*UPDATE* The B-D boys just heard from Clooney's publicist that he will not be in the film. Expect some solid casting news soon!**
Though this morning’s announcement that Heath Ledger would be playing The Joker in Warner Bros. sequel Batman: The Dark Knight was pretty strange, Bloody Disgusting managed to find out some even weirder casting news and got it confirmed.
Seems that none other than George Clooney is on board Paramount’s upcoming remake of Mary Lambert’s Pet Semetary, a film that’s been languishing in one form of development hell or another for years now. They were unable to find out just how big Clooney’s role would be, but I really don’t see why he couldn’t play father Louis Creed.
I guess we’ll be finding out more as production gets closer to being a reality, so stick around!
