We’ve been keeping our ear to the ground since Paramount resurrected rumours of a remake of Pet Sematary – and it sounds like its lead actor is to be announced very soon.
The upcoming reboot will be directed by Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer (Starry Eyes, 2014), and from what we know already, its leading role seems likely to be filled by actor Jason Clarke (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes). Filming is due to begin in May.
The film’s synopsis reads:
“Doctor Louis Creed moves his family to Maine, where he meets a friendly local named Jud Crandall. After the Creeds’ cat is accidentally killed, Crandall advises Louis to bury it in the ground near the old pet cemetery. The cat returns to life, its personality changed for the worse. When Louis’ son, Gage, dies tragically, Louis decides to bury the boy’s body in the same ground despite the warnings of Crandall and Louis’ visions of a deceased patient.”
We will be bringing you additional details as we hear them! Pet Sematary will be in cinemas from April 19, 2019.
