November 1st, 2013 by bash Comments

Juan Carlos Fresnadillo will direct an upcoming remake of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary, according to Variety.

The 28 Weeks Later helmer will work from a script byMatthew Greenberg (who previously adapted King’s 1408) and David Kajganich (who has also done work on a new version of King’s It).

Pet Sematary, which was released in 1983, tells the story of a Northeastern pet cemetery built on a Native American burial ground and home to a monstrous, supernatural Wendigo.

The story was previously adapted for the screen in 1989 with a sequel, Pet Sematary Two, following in 1992.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
