Paramount Pictures Announces Remake Of ‘Pet Sematary’

Subscribe to WBZN Old Town Maine on

With the huge success of the remake of IT, it’s no surprise Paramount Pictures will be taking on another Stephen King movie.

Pet Sematary is being remade. Paramount Pictures announced they will take on the Stephen King novel-turned-movie. The original movie was released in 1989.

According to Rolling Stone, directors Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer will head up the project. There’s no timeline as far as when the flick will be released, but 2019 seems to be the prediction.

The book is about a family that moves into a home in Maine with an old pet cemetery near the property. Legend has it that animals buried there come back to life. When the family cat is ran over, it’s brought back to life after being buried. When trying to bring a child back to life, the outcome isn’t pretty.

The house that inspired King’s book was for sale over the summer. We’re not sure if it’s been sold, but the for sale sign has been gone for months. There really is a pet cemetery behind the house. However, over the years, fans of the book and movie have stolen most of the objects at the cemetery, including the sign.

Stephen King released the book in 1983.
