Trying something “new”
Lorenzo Di Bonaventura spoke to io9 about the status of the Pet Sematary remake, something writer David Kajganich was once attached to. He told his side of the development story in this news item.
Di Bonaventura, meanwhile, assured io9 that a “soft” adaptation, or one that could potentially be PG-13, seems unlikely. The producer says Matt Greenberg has been hired to take over writing duties.
“How do you write what you already know?” said Di Bonaventura. “We’re going to try some new things in the first couple drafts and see how it plays.”
Greenberg’s credits include Halloween: H20 and another Stephen King adaptation 1408.
