Pet Sematary Exhumed For Remake

1408 scripter to tackle another Stephen King property

The project has actually been bubbling under for a while now, at one point having a script by Face/Off scribes Mike Werb and Michael Colleary, and George Clooney rumoured to star. Now Paramount is looking to get the project underway.

The 1983 book about a spooky pet cemetary that rests on an ancient burial ground (really, does nobody ever check their survey?) was originally turned into a movie in 1989 with a screenplay by Stephen King himself. Greenberg’s scriptwriting CV also includes Reign of Fire , Halloween: H20 and Mimic .
