The works of Stephen King have always been quite popular – whether it be his TV Series, Novels, Books on Tape or Box Office Wonders. Following the debut of IT, the Stephen King fan base grew drastically in numbers. Now, the public is wondering which one of King’s novels (or older films) will be brought to life in the next few years to come.
Well, it would appear as if we got our answer – Pet Sematary!
The original film was made in 1989 and starred Dale Midkiff, Fred Gwynne and Denise Crosby. Directed by Mary Lambert, this film spooked horror fans (and animal lovers) all across the world. The original is something that may be considered cheesy by viewers today, but given the technology and visuals we see in films in this day and age, you know that it’s going to be top tier super creepy.
The remake finally found it’s directors, Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer who previously helmed Starry Eyes. For the past decade, there have been rumors circulating in regards to this King classic. There were a couple of other directors that were previously tied to the film, only to pass that mantle on.
Hopefully these new directors, revealed by Variety, will stick around as this is a film we would love to see brought back to life. I would put my bets on it, since everyone is trying to get themselves a piece of the King universe.
Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer are both pretty solid choices to take a seat in the director’s chair for Pet Semetary. Starry Eyes was a well received independent movie in 2014. The pair also made a splash by directing selected episodes of MTV’s Scream.
While some King projects didn’t do so well as of recent, the success from IT cannot be ignored. Hopefully, that movie is an excellent foreshadowing of other King films to come!
