Stephen King is one of the most prolific writers in the business and is arguably in a league of his own when it comes to the horror genre. King has given us a plethora of creepy tales from Misery to The Shining. Pet Sematary is a particularly grisly tale and has become a must-read for King fans. It was announced that a film adaptation of the book is in the works and it looks like it will hit theatres sooner rather than later.
The film was originally slated to be released on April 19, 2019 but it has been reported by Bloody Disgusting that Paramount has bumped the film up to an April 5 release date. The film is being written and directed by Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch and Jason Clarke has been cast as Louis Creed.
Last year saw the release of a film adaptation of It, which received a great response from critics. The second half is also set to be released next year and will see the kids in the first film return as adults. It certainly looks like 2019 will be a good year for fans of Stephen King!
As reported by Screen Daily, Saboteur Media gained worldwide rights for the project and is currently being pitched to buyers after the film wrapped in August. The story will take a new look at the classic story and begins with a Victorian family preparing a toy stage in order to do a production of A Christmas Carol. We then see the story through the eyes of a young viewer, as the cardboard sets and toys are transformed into a fantastic and vivid tale.
There’s no doubt we’re depleting the world’s resources and in Mortal Engines, Reeves imagines a world where we all have to resort to rolling cities, forced into predatory behaviour as they crawl the world fighting to survive.
After the surprising success of the first Goosebumps movie, starring Jack Black as Stine himself, this sequel looks to continue the fun and freaky mix of scary and silly. Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween will star Madison Iseman, Ken Jeong, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Caleel Harris.
Jack Black is rumoured to return as the voice of one of the haunted book characters come to life!
Check out the trailer below, and watch out for the movie’s release mid-October.
The adaptations have been fantastic and both Tom Burke and Holliday Grainger have exceeded expectations in the leading roles. Read More
