It director wants to remake Pet Sematary
Andy Muschietti says it was the first Stephen King book that he read
Andy Muschietti, director of the hit horror film It, wants to remake Stephen King's novel Pet Sematary, which is about an ancient Indian burial ground that brings the dead back to life.
"My affection for Pet Sematary will go on until I die. I will always dream about the possibility of making a movie," Muschietti says.
Pet Sematary was earlier adapted for the big screen in 1989. Barbara Muschietti, his sister and It co-producer, says, "We'll see who gets to it first. But it is the first Stephen King book that we read, and it's something that has been a great love, because it is possibly King's most personal book."
"You can imagine his young family. What will you do to be able to keep your family? How far would you go? But if we do it, we have to do it justice, like we did with It. The versions we read in the past years, the scripts we've read, have not been, in our opinion, representative of the book," Barbara adds.
It is also based on Stephen King's horror novel of the same name.
