Since his 2011 film Intruders, director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo has been bouncing around reboots. A couple years ago, he was attached to direct a reboot of The Crow and Highlander, but ended up dropping out of both. Now he’s headed toward yet another tested property. According to Variety, he will stick with the horror genre to direct a remake of Paramount’s Pet Sematary. Based on the novel by Stephen King, the story is about a family that moves in to a home located next to a cemetery (always a bad idea), and they discover that the cemetery can bring its buried creatures back from the dead. A remake has been kicking around for the past several years, and at one point Alexandre Aja (Piranha 3D) was in talks to direct. Mary Lambert‘s 1989 adaptation grossed $57 million on a $11 million budget. She then directed the sequel, Pet Sematary II, but it didn’t have the same level of success as its predecessor.
There are no details about how Fresnadillo and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura plan to proceed, but perhaps they should look at the recent version of Stephen King’s Carrie and be careful. When it comes to remakes, “sometimes dead is better.”
