Well that’s it. Halloween is over for another year, but you know what? That means nothing to us, as around here it is Halloween 24/7 and the horror news never stops. So, anyone up for a remake of Pet Sematary?
Sorry folks, but it looks as if this one is moving closer than many of you had hoped for. According to Variety, Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later) is currently in talks to helm Paramount’s remake of the classic flick Pet Sematary.
Matt Greenberg and David Kajganich penned the script, while Lorenzo di Bonaventura is on producing duties.
The original film “followed a family that moves into a new home next to a cemetery with powers that allow the creatures buried in it to come back from the dead.”
While I wasn’t the biggest fan of 28 Weeks Later, considering how much I loved 28 Days Later, I’m still intrigued to see his take on Pet Sematary. I mean, some of the most recent remakes have surprised me by how good they have been, so who knows.
What do you guys make of this?
