I mentioned a few months back that a remake of Pet Cemetary was in the works, and now I can tell you that the new adaptation of Stephen King’s novel from directing-duo Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch [Starry Eye, the upcoming Mama 2] has been fast tracked and may very well begin shooting shoot in Toronto this May. This is still merely a rumour at this point, but I would expect it to be true as the studio will want to cash-in on the popularity of It which seems to have kick-started a new wave of King adaptations. As I probably said previously, I think they’ll find it hard to top Mary Lambert’s original film which King scripted himself, but we shall see.
Pet Cemetary is scripted by Jeff Buhler and David Kajganich, but we don’t have a cast list yet. The release date is April 19, 2019.
