So as the release of Lorenzo di Bonaventura’s Pet Sematary draws closer, the producer drops hints about the hopes and idea of producing a movie on the time leading up to when the Creed family moves to their new Maine home. Di Bonaventura spoke about his ambition to produce a prequel of the series during an interview with Consequence of Sound. He said:
“I think if there’s anything here, there’s a prequel. I think if you look at the book, we didn’t cover all that stuff that happens before the Creed family moves in. So, I think there’s a movie there, and I think I’d be particularly interested in doing that, because, again, it’s the source material and you are going toward something that also has a lot of crazy, creepy feelings about it.“
Now if you ask me, I am so intrigued by just the idea of having the someone portray the creepy history of the Indian graveyard I was so terrified of as a child. Never did I think about stepping foot near any pet graveyard after learning from the mistakes of Dr. Louis Creed.
Directed by Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer, Pet Sematary stars Jason Clarke, Amy Seimetz, Jeté Laurence, Hugo and Lucas Lavoie, and John Lithgow. The adaptation of the Stephen King novel opens April 5.
