According to The Hollywood Reporter Matthew Greenberg, who wrote the Stephen King adaptation “1408,” will be scripting the remake of King’s Pet Sematary. The project is set up at Paramount.
Published in 1983, King’s tale centered on a family that trades the city life for the country life in Maine, then discovers that they have moved near a pet cemetery that rests on an ancient burial ground. When the husband’s toddler son is killed in an auto accident, the father takes the boy’s body to the cemetery, where it is resurrected in demonic form.
Greenberg has penned such fantasy and horror scripts as Reign of Fire, Halloween: H20 and Mimic.
