‘Pet Sematary’ Gets ‘Starry Eyes’ Creators To Direct
Remakes are all the rage right now, and it looks like the next property to get a second chance at the silver screen is Stephen King’s PET SEMATARY. Paramount has tapped STARRY EYES writers and directors Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer to direct the remake, according to Variety.
This is very exciting news. Our own Luke Rodriguez gave STARRY EYES an overall score of 7.5 when he reviewed it, calling the movie “an exceptionally well-rounded horror film with an excellent story.”
Lorenzo di Bonaventura (TRANSFORMERS, CONSTANTINE) and Mark Vahradian (DEEPWATER HORIZON, TRANSFORMERS) will produce the remake. The original movie had Mary Lambert directing a screenplay written by King himself.
The original movie follows a family that moves to rural Maine. When tragedy strikes with the death of their child, the family turns to the buried behind the house to bring back their son.
There are no plot details right now, and there’s no release date set for the remake.
