Have you seen IT yet? Pretty scary, right? Well director Andy Muschietti has revealed which other freaky film he wants to remake – and it’s another Stephen King classic.
He wants to direct a remake of Pet Sematary! Muschietti said in a recent Entertainment Weekly interview that he has a “dream” to direct the remake of King’s 1983 horror novel which was originally made into a movie in 1989.
“My affection for Pet Sematary will go on until I die,” Muschietti said. “I will always dream about the possibility of making a movie.”
His sister and IT co-producer Barbara Muschietti added: “We’ll see who gets to it first. But it is the first Stephen King book that we read, and it’s something that has been a great love, because it is possibly King’s most personal book. You can imagine his young family. What will you do to be able to keep your family? How far would you go?”
She added: “But if we do it, we have to do it justice, like we did with IT. The versions we read in the past years, the scripts we’ve read, have not been, in our opinion, representative of the book.”
