It’s possible that a prequel to the Pet Sematary remake could be on the way should the film perform well, according to the movie’s producer.
Horror films are huge business right now, especially if you have a name like Stephen King behind you. The next adaptation of the author’s work is Pet Sematary, a book which has been adapted in the past.
This version of the story is coming out at a great time for horror movies and should the film take off at the box office, Pet Sematary‘s producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura says that a follow up could be made. Discussing the possibilities to Consequence of Sound, the producer said:
“I think if there’s anything here, there’s a prequel. I think if you look at the book, we didn’t cover all that stuff that happens before the Creed family moves in. So, I think there’s a movie there, and I think I’d be particularly interested in doing that, because, again, it’s the source material and you are going toward something that also has a lot of crazy, creepy feelings about it.”
Of course, we will have to wait and see how audiences react to the movie but should all go well, there could be more to look forward to.
“Based on the seminal horror novel by Stephen King, Pet Sematary follows Dr. Louis Creed (Jason Clarke), who, after relocating with his wife Rachel (Amy Seimetz) and their two young children from Boston to rural Maine, discovers a mysterious burial ground hidden deep in the woods near the family’s new home. When tragedy strikes, Louis turns to his unusual neighbor, Jud Crandall (John Lithgow), setting off a perilous chain reaction that unleashes an unfathomable evil with horrific consequences.”
Pet Sematary is set to open on April 4th, 2019 and sees Jason Clarke (Winchester) takes on the lead role of Louis Creed, while the cast also includes Amy Seimetz (Alien: Covenant), John Lithgow (The Crown), Jeté Laurence (The Americans), Hugo Lavoie and Lucas Lavoie.
