We consider Mary Lambert’s adaptation of Pet Sematary to be one of the greatest Stephen King adaptations ever filmed. That being said, the idea of remaking it has been kicking around for a while now, and at one point Jeff Buhler had penned a script for it and Juan Carlos Fresnadillo was set to helm. That was way back in March of 2016.
With the passing of the months has come some new interest in getting it done by IT director Andres Muschietti!
“We’re huge fans of Pet Sematary,” Muschietti tells the Toronto Sun in a pretty in-depth interview. “If we can get our hands on that and do the Pet Sematary we want to do, that will be something. One day, maybe.”
Fingers crossed, kids! In the meantime, IT will be hitting theaters on September 8th.

- One-Eye I remember it as being one of the better post SCREAM slasher movies. I certainly haven't watched it since then.
