As reported back in March last year, 1408 scribe Matthew Greenberg was brought on to pen another adaptation of Stephen King's PET SEMETARY for Paramount Pictures. Nearly a year on, he seems to have finished with The Los Angeles Times reporting that the script is ready to go out and Paramount have put out a request for a "high-level director" to tackle the material.

This long-gestating new adaptation of King's 1983 novel follows a family who move to a small Maine town along a highway often used by high-speed trucks. Nearby lies a pet cemetery and further beyond that an ancient indian burial ground which can resurrect the dead, but those who come back aren't quite right. When the toddler son is killed in an auto accident, the grieving father uses that power - but at the cost of several lives and his own sanity. Paramount previously adapted the book in 1989 starring Dale Midkiff, Denise Crosby and Fred Gwynne.

28 WEEKS LATER director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo is currently in talks with Paramount Pictures to remake Stephen King's classic horror story. The studio has been looking to get the movie made for a few years now, but apparently they are finally ready to get it into production.

The early word on the new first film of a two-film adaptation of Stephen King's IT is excellent. Should it succeed, director Andres Muschietti and his sister and the film's producer Barbara Muschietti have hinted that they're keen to tackle other works in the King canon.

The pair already own the film rights to King's 1981 sci-fi horror short story THE JAUNT, but in an interview published yesterday by The Toronto Sun, Barbara Muschietti says there's one book they're particularly keen on adapting: "We're huge fans of PET SEMETARY. If we can get our hands on that and do the PET SEMETARY we want to do, that will be something. One day, maybe."

The 1983 novel deals with a family who moves into a house by a busy highway, while a nearby nature walk leads to a rundown animal cemetery and, further on, an ancient Indian burial ground which can bring things back to life (albeit changed).

Variety is reporting that Paramount Pictures has dug up two PET SEMETARY directors, Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer, for the remake of the 1989 original. The pair are best known for their critically-acclaimed 2014 indie horror film STARRY EYES, as well as the anthology HOLIDAYS and MTV's SCREAM series. Jeff Buhler and David Kajganich have written the screenplay, and Alexandra Loewy is executive producing.
