1989 film set for a modern overhaul
A new film version of Stephen King‘s book Pet Sematary is set to be made.
The Attic director Mary Lambert helmed a 1989 film based on the book, and now The LA Times reports that 1408 screenwriter Matthew Greenberg has written a script for the new project.
He is now set to deliver the script to the Paramount studio, who are reportedly looking for a “high-level director” to take on the project.
The plot of the book follows a family who move into a new house beside a busy road. When the family’s child is knocked down and killed, he’s put to rest in a nearby burial ground – and then rises up from the dead.
