Hollywood is resurrecting the Stephen King tale Pet Sematary for one more chance at cinematic life.
According to Los Angeles Times, screenwriter Matt Greenberg (who also scripted the King adaptation 1408) "is set to turn in his script for a new version of the tale, according to a person briefed on the project who was not authorized to speak about it publicly. And executives at studio Paramount have put out the word to at least two representatives in the agent community that they are seeking a high-level director to tackle the material."
The story was originally brought to the screen in 1989 starring Dale Midkiff, Fred Gwynne, Denise Crosby and Miko Hughes. The less celebrated sequel Pet Sematary Two, starring Edward Furlong, Anthony Edwards and Clancy Brown, debuted in 1992.
