‘Pet Sematary’ Remake Rises From The Grave With '28 Weeks Later' Director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo

"28 Weeks Later" director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, has been making waves of late for the projects he's almost done, rather than anything he's actually moving forward with. He was in the mix for both "Hot Wheels" and "Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes" but didn't get either gig, and he also walked away from the "Highlander" remake last year (someone else has since been hired).

Pet Semetary Juan Carlos Fresnadillo

"28 Weeks Later" director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, has been making waves of late for the projects he's almost done, rather than anything he's actually moving forward with. He was in the mix for both "Hot Wheels" and "Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes" but didn't get either gig, and he also walked away from the "Highlander" remake last year (someone else has since been hired). But it looks like the world of Stephen King has come calling...

Variety reports that the "Pet Semetary" remake is alive once more, and Fresnadillo will be directing. This project has been brewing since at least 2010, and Alexandre Aja was once eyed for the job, but not much has been heard since. However, with a script from Matt Greenberg ("1408," "Reign Of Fire") and David Kajganich ("The Invasion," "Blood Creek") it looks like this tale of a pet burial site with the power to bring back creatures from the dead, now has new life. (Ha).

Anyway, we'll see what twists are brought to this new version, but until then, here's the trailer to the 1989 movie, and yes, Stephen King himself is in it.
