Writer Jeff Buhler is entering remake of PEt Semetary, based on the nov by Stephen King.

I'm pretty happy about this..it's the first Stephen King book I read, and still one of my favourites. It's eerie as hell, and a really good strory.

The old film was good, but I've been thinking for a while that the book deserved a new film.

Thoughts?

As cool as it is that Pet Semetary is getting a new film, It is in desperate need of a remake.
I read occasional "news" about one but I feel it will never end up happening.

I'd like to see a big budget remake of The Mist.
The one that was done blew goat chunks but the original story was pretty damn good.
Pet Semetary was a damn good story too.
I'll wait for the DVD.

The Tommyknockers was a good story, the TV movie version of it had a few good bits but otherwise it was disappointing.

Remaining on Stephen King, it'd be interesting to see a movie version of Desperation.


I know they did a tv film, but I've yet to see it. Anyone know what it's like?

The first time I saw The Mist was in black & white. I think it was a director's cut or something. Then I saw it in color.
It blows. I recommend watching it in black und weiss.

OT: This is sick and amazing news. I hope it turns out fantastic.

I know. The odd thing about it was it was directed by Frank Darabont. The guy that directed "Shawshank Redemption", "Green Mile", the mini-series "Mob City" and was the producer of "The Walking Dead".

I guess everyone can have an off-day..

It will more than likely be crap like most remakes made nowadays. The film is perfectly fine how it is now, so just leave it alone. People need to put their time into making completely new movies and quit butchering the great classics.

Is it really necessary? The original was pretty decent. I don't see the benefit of a remake except for turning a buck.

I wish they'd do a remake of The Stand and actually make it AWESOME, instead of decent.

Alternatively, make a movie/TV show of 11/22/63. I adored that book.

But the film isn't really a classic..it's a good film, based on a great novel, so I can see this turning out pretty well.
