"28 Weeks Later" Director to Remake Stephen King's "Pet Sematary"

Posted: October 31st, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"28 Weeks Later" Director to Remake Stephen KingSubmit Comment
Paramount Pictures started working on a remake of Stephen King's "Pet Sematary" three years ago when the studio hired Matthew Greenberg (1408, Reign of Fire, Halloween: H20, Mimic) to write the script.

Since then, several directors have been attached, including Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, Mirrors, Piranha 3D). Apparently things didn't work out, because now comes word that "28 Weeks Later" helmer Juan Carlos Fresnadillo has signed on to direct the film.

Published in 1983, "Pet Sematary" centered on a family that trades the city life for the country life in Maine, then discovers that they have moved near a pet cemetery that rests on an ancient burial ground. When the husband's toddler son is killed in an auto accident, the father takes the boy's body to the cemetery, where it is resurrected in demonic form.

The novel is great, but both films were sh*t. Here's to hoping this wetback can do a decent remake.

I watch the original every so often and have always liked it, so I hope they don't f*ck this up.

Hollywood's hurting for talented screenwriters I guess.

Either that or the studios and producers are just ignoring new and original scripts.

@mink
I made the same mistake, actually. However, I still have to give it to Robert Carlyle in Weeks. I actually enjoyed his character somewhat, and I love the man himself. I was VERY reluctant to watch Once Upon A Time, and having now caught up I must say that while the show itself isn't something I'd normally enjoy, Robert Carlyle as Rumpelstiltskin keeps me just entertained enough to keep watching.

Why? Why, does this need to happen? Two timing losers.

Lol, why does any remake need to happen, ever?

I really enjoyed the book and also the first film, even though it wasn't exactly like the book. Zelda, the sister with spinal meningitis, was by far the scariest thing from the film.
