Jason Clarke, who stars in the just-released indie drama Chappaquiddick, is in talks to star in Pet Sematary, Paramount’s redo of its 1989 horror pic based on Stephen King’s 1983 novel, Deadline has confirmed. The studio has already set an April 19, 2019 release date for this one. Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer (Starry Eyes) are directing the pic, which Jeff Buhler (The Midnight Meat Train) is adapting, about the Creed family that moves in next door to a pet cemetery. Clarke would play the father, Louis Creed, played by Dale Midkiff in the original.
