CS Video: Pet Sematary Directors Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer
Ahead of the film’s release this week, Coming Soon spoke with Starry Eyes filmmakers Directors Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer to talk about their new film, the latest adaptation of Pet Sematary. Listen to all the dirt the pair dig up for us about the new film in the player below!
Pet Sematary is based on the seminal horror novel by Stephen King which follows Dr. Louis Creed (Jason Clarke), who, after relocating with his wife Rachel (Amy Seimetz) and their two young children from Boston to rural Maine, discovers a mysterious burial ground hidden deep in the woods near the family’s new home. When tragedy strikes, Louis turns to his unusual neighbor, Jud Crandall (John Lithgow), setting off a perilous chain reaction that unleashes an unfathomable evil with horrific consequences.
Paramount Pictures‘ adaptation will be directed by Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch (Starry Eyes) and is written by Jeff Buhler, the showrunner for Syfy’s upcoming horror science fiction series, Nightflyers, based on the George R.R. Martin novella. Lorenzo di Bonaventura (1408, Transformers) is producing along with Mark Vahradian and Steven Schneider (Insidious).
Pet Sematary will debut this Friday, April 5.
