The remake is continuing to move along nicely.
The film is likely to follow the story of the novel, where Dr. Louis Creed and his family move to a rural town in Maine after he accepts a new job there. Shortly after arriving, they are mystified by a makeshift pet cemetery in the woods nearby their home. Following the unexpected death of their cat, they decide to bury it at this cemetery. However, therein lies a blood-chilling truth of terror that will freeze the souls of those that dare tamper with this forbidden place.
The new adaptation of Pet Sematary was originally scheduled for April 19th, 2019 but has been slightly bumped up for release instead on April 5th. The film will be directed by Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer. The duo is known for directing other films like Absence and Starry Eyes, as well as a few episodes of the Scream TV series.
