I hate you so much right now, Hollywood. Why? Pet Sematary wasn’t a perfect movie, but it is skillfully adapted from one of Stephen King’s finest novels and it delivers some great, creepy scares along the way. It’s hardly a story that needs to be revisited for a more modern audience, however. You fail, Hollywood.
Matthew Greenberg, who scripted King short-story adaptation 1408, is just polishing off his writing work on a Pet Sematary remake, according to the Los Angeles Times. The news comes from an unnamed source close to the project, who also indicates that Paramount Pictures has put out the call to land a top-shelf director. That is the sum total of what is revealed about the remake plans, but if the search really is on, then we should be hearing plenty more soon.
The original Pet Sematary was released in 1989, and it remains one of the scarier movies out there, and one of the best attempts at translating King’s words to the big screen. The idea of remaking a movie that is both so recent and so strong on its own just doesn’t make sense to me. Am I alone in this? Do the rest of you think I’m crazy? Is there anyone among you who really supports the idea of a Pet Sematary remake?
