A batch of brand new images have been released from the upcoming new adaptation of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary. They give us a look at Jason Clarke’s Louis, John Lithgow as Jud, Amy Seimetz as Rachel, plus Jete Laurence as the young Ellie and Huge Lavoie as Gage. Most importantly though, we get to see the undead cat Church, who begins the story’s steps into true terror. Check them out below.
The new re-telling will be directed by Starry Eyes’ Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch, from a script written by David Kajganich and Jeff Buhler (Midnight Meat Train).
Described by Stephen King as “the most frightening book I’ve ever written,” his 1983 novel Pet Sematary tells the tale of Louis and Rachel Creed, who discover the re-animating properties of an Indian burial ground behind their new house. Louis decides to bring back their daughter Ellie’s cat after it is killed on the road, but when a horrible tragedy strikes the family, they find out that “sometimes, dead is better.”
Paramount will release Pet Sematary on 5th April 2019.
