Pet Sematary Remake, Starring Jason Clarke and Amy Seimetz, Gets Trailer

Mary Lambert’s Pet Sematary, which was released the same year as the filmmaker made Madonna’s iconic “Like a Prayer” video, hasn’t aged as well as other Stephen King adaptations from the era. As such, it will come as a surprise to no one that a remake is on the horizon. Directed by Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer from a screenplay by David Kajganich and Jeff Buhler, the new Pet Sematary follows a doctor, Louis Creed (Jason Clarke), and his wife, Rachel (Amy Seimetz), who stumble upon a mysterious burial ground near their family’s new home in rural Maine. Tragedy naturally strikes, forcing Louis to turn to an unusual neighbor (played by the reliably unusual John Lithgow) and in the process unleashing an unfathomable evil that will no doubt have hyperbolic consequences.
