Pet Semetary remake coming in 2019

A new adaptation of Stephen King's 1983 horror novel Pet Semetary is set to hit cinemas in 2019.

The story follows a family that uses an ancient Native American burial ground to bring back pets, then people, from the dead.

Resurrecting loved ones comes with a price, however, and terror ensues.

Paramount Pictures will release the film, which is being directed by Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch and written by Jeff Buhler.

Pet Semetary, the first movie, was released in 1989 before a sequel came in 1992.

Just a few months after the new Pet Semetary is released in April, 2019, fellow King adaptation It 2 will hit cinemas in September.

This year saw the release King adaptations It, The Dark Tower and Gerald's Game.
