"Pet Sematary" Follow-Up Hires Director

 

Despite mixed reviews, the 2019 film adaptation of Stephen King's popular novel Pet Sematary made a whopping $113.1 million at the box office on a mere $21 million budget. So it's no surprise that Paramount has announced a follow-up (despite no such sequel existing to the original novel). And today, Lindsey Beer has been confirmed to be taking the helm as well as writing the script based on a draft by Jeff Buhler.


Beer previously is known as a screenwriter, having written the popular 2018 Netflix film Sierra Burgess Is a Loser. She also did uncredited script revisions for the long-delayed sci-fi film Chaos Walking. However, she currently is writing more than half-a -dozen major projects including the writing the series adaptation of Mark Millar's The Magic Order comic book series, a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles CG- animated film, a Short Circuit remake, and the solo Silver Sable film over at Sony.


Little else is known about the project except that it will debut exclusively on the Paramount+ service with Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian to produce. Stay tuned!
