New Pet Sematary adaptation finds directors

King's works are now a hot commodity in Hollywood, with It smashing records at the box office and numerous television series, such as Mr. Mercedes, and Netflix films, like Gerald's Game and 1922, based on his work being released this year.

The news that Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer have been confirmed to direct a new version of the Stephen King classic comes just in time for Halloween.

Pet Sematary is a beloved King novel - and at least two major filmmakers have expressed interest in adapting King's work for another feature: Guillermo del Toro and It filmmaker Andy Muschietti.

Per Variety, Paramount has hired Kolsch and Widmyer to direct a second adaptation of Pet Sematary.

Pet Sematary follows Doctor Louis Creed who moves his family to ME where he meets a friendly local named Jud Crandall. Matt Greenberg and David Kajganich have written a script for the remake, though given how early into the process development is, no other key information is now available.

Paramount had been ramping up its director search since the success of "It", with directors like Sean Carter and "47 Meters Down" helmer Johannes Roberts also meeting to possibly take on the role.

The original movie was released in 1989 and was directed by Mark Lambert with King writing the screenplay along with Steven Schneider.

Regardless, some fans may be anxious about the influx of King adaptations given the sheer number of poorly received King films in years prior.

Remind yourself of the original Pet Sematary in the trailer above. What will you do to be able to keep your family?
