Throughout the past month, we have learned some killer casting info on the upcoming remake of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary from the directors of Starry Eyes, Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch.
First, we learned that Jason Clarke will play new Louis Creed and then we learned that John Lithgow will be playing the new Jud Crandall. And today we have learned the film has shifted release dates, slightly.
The film was originally set to hit on April 19th, 2019 but today we have word from Box Office over on Twitter that the film will now be unleashed April 5th, 2019. Nice!
The remake (now) hits us April 5, 2019.
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.
