It director wants to a Pet Sematary remake
Andy Muschietti is a 44-year-old director who managed to bring It at the top of the box office. However, he’s not planning to stop here with Stephen King movie adaptations. The director is a big fan of his works, and expressed plenty of interest in turning Pet Sematary into a movie.
Muschietti is a huge fan of the book, and declared he would remain so until his death. Therefore, turning it into a movie would mean the fulfillment of a lifelong dream of his. In fact, this will come to the excitement of many Stephen King fans, who found the latest It as an improvement from previous versions.
This adaptation might really happen
The novel tells the story of a supernatural Indian burial ground, where the dead could come back to life. It was first published in 1983, and received its first movie adaptation in 1989. However, remakes are typical at Hollywood, and they usually bring new perspectives on the old stories.
Muschietti is not the only one who is excited about a Pet Sematary remake. The co-producer of It, who is at the same time the director’s sister, Barbara Muschietti, is another supporter of this idea, and their dream might become a reality. Paramount is the owner of the film rights, but Warner Bros. can still get a chance to do it. If they come up with a good script, they might actually get a deal for a Pet Sematary movie.
