Guillermo del Toro Wants to Bring Pet Sematary Back to the Big Screen

This past weekend marked the theatrical release of Crimson Peak, Guillermo del Toro’s most visually pleasing effort to date. What’s next for the visionary filmmaker? Several potential projects are in the works, including a sequel to Pacific Rim, but if del Toro has his way, he may soon adapt Stephen King.

In the weeks before Crimson Peak was released, Guillermo del Toro finally created an account on Twitter, and his tweets have served as a fun insight into the brain of a master filmmaker. Del Toro has been tweeting a lot about the books he’s been reading, leading to an eye-catching revelation about Pet Sematary.

Book of the Day: PET SEMATARY by Stephen King,” @RealGDT tweeted out the other day. “Unrelentingly dark and emotional. Compulsive reading. Would kill to make it on film.”

I believe this novel is destined to be made again,” he later continued.

As awesome as this sounds, we must remind you that Jeff Buhler (Midnight Meat Train) is currently working on a new adaptation of Pet Sematary, with Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later) attached to direct. That was the plan when we talked to Buhler back in July, but we haven’t heard about the project since then.

Guillermo del Toro’s Pet Sematary. Can you imagine?!
