Director of the new IT film has another Stephen King horror he wants to remake

Please let this happen.

Given the amount of classic novels that Stephen King has written, it's entirely understandable that not every adaptation has pleased the beloved author. This being said, King has shown that he's keen to collaborate with those filmmakers that capture the spirit of his books.


For example, the first film that Frank Darabont wrote and directed was a short adaptation of Stephen King's The Woman in the Room. King was so impressed with the finished film that he agreed to let the director adapt another one of his works, Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption.

Since the Shawshank Redemption was released, Darabont has further cemented his relationship with King by making The Green Mile and The Mist.

With The Dark Tower, IT and Mr. Mercedes all set for imminent releases, it appears that the summer of 2017 will be dominated by Stephen King adaptations and we could be getting another one very shortly because IT director Andy Muschietti has said that he's keen on making a modern version of the beloved Pet Sematary.

Speaking with The Toronto Sun, Muschietti said that "we’re huge fans of Pet Sematary. If we can get our hands on that and do the Pet Sematary we want to do, that will be something. One day, maybe.


In case you need reminding, the story revolves around a young family's home in Maine which hides a terrible secret that holds the power of life after death. When tragedy strikes, the threat of that power soon becomes undeniable.

The novel was already adapted in 1989 and has become something of a cult-classic.

Given how well King has received Muschietti 's version of IT, and the amount of money that it's going to make at the box-office, we can see this happening.
