Juan Carlos Fresnadillo to direct Pet Sematary remake
Friday, 1 November 2013
According to Variety, Fresnadillo is in talks with Paramount about directing Lorenzo Di Bonaventura's upcoming remake of the 1989 Stephen King adaptation Pet Sematary, which centred around a family who discover an ancient Native American cemetery that allows creatures buried there to be brought back from the dead, albeit with a bit of an attitude adjustment.
The original Pet Sematary was directed by Mary Lambert (Urban Legends: Bloody Mary), who also returned to direct a sequel in 1992. The script for the remake has been written by Matt Greenberg (Halloween H20: 20 Years Later, 1408) and David Kajganich (The Invasion, Blood Creek).
