Guillermo del Toro has a long list of projects on his plate, as a writer, as a director and as a producer. However, the eager filmmaker still dreams of more. For instance, an adaptation of Stephen King's "Pet Sematary."
"Would kill to make it on film," he wrote today on Twitter.
The 1983 horror novel, centered on a burial ground that can bring both animals and humans back to life, was adapted for film in1989, with a lesser sequel following in 1992.
There's also been talk of a remake for at least the past four years, first with Alexander Aja and then with Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, but there's been no public movement in a long time. That said, who wouldn't want to see del Toro's version of "Pet Sematary"? Surely someone at Paramount Pictures has his number.
Book of the Day: PET SEMATARY by Stephen King. Unrelentingly dark and emotional. Compulsive reading. Would kill to make it on film.
