The Latest News On The “IT” And “Pet Sematary” Remakes

November 5, 2013

Variety revealed that director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later) is in talks to helm Paramount‘s remake of PET SEMATARY being produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura. The script was written by Matt Greenberg and David Kajganich.

Synopsis: “The Creeds have just moved to a new house in the countryside. Their house is perfect, except for two things: the semi-trailers that roar past on the narrow road, and the mysterious cemetary in the woods behind the house. The Creed’s neighbours are reluctant to talk about the cemetary because it has the power to bring the creatures buried in it back from the dead. However, they don’t return in exactly the same way they went in”

THR also revealed that Cary Fukunaga (Jane Eyre) will be directing the remake of IT. Fans have been worried that this remake would be only one film considering the novel’s length, but the plans are to split the story into two movies to do it justice.

Synopsis: “In 1960, a group of social outcasts who are bullied by a gang of greasers lead by Henry Bowers are also tormented by an evil demon who can shapeshift into a clown and feed on children’s fears and kill them. After defeating the demonic clown as kids, it resurfaces 30 years later and they must finish it off as adults once again.”

Fukunaga will write the screenplay with Chase Palmer.
