Sick of Stephen King adaptations yet? Well, that’s too damn bad, as we have a whole slew of them in the works. Be them TV adaptations or feature films adaptations, his novels have always been ripe for picking. With the success of IT, it seems that his back catalog of books has been one Hollywood has been itching to re-exploit. One such film is none other than Pet Sematary, a story that’s no stranger to the silver screen.

On board to direct the horror movie is none other than Starry Eyes directors Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch would be taking on the film. The film itself was announced back in October, and with that, I assumed it’d be at least a handful more months before they would enter production, but that ain’t the case at all. Widmyer too to Twitter to share a photo chronicling its start of filming.

Check it out below:

Jeff Buhler responsible for the screenplay for the film, and while there are plenty of folks who would worry about the thought of them starting production so soon after announcing it, it could also be an indication of an in-sync vision between the helmers and the studio. Clearly, there was very little they sought to change between now and then, so that’s a good sign. Of course, the flip side of that is that Widmyer and Kolsch could be seen as little more than hired hands to carry out a vision, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing, even if it is the case.

Regardless, like IT before it, Pet Sematary is a film that will benefit from updated visuals and a more modern filmmaking style. Are you excited? Let us know down below!
