Although the PET SEMATAR The 2019 remake didn’t surprise anyone, it ended up grossing over $ 110 million worldwide, which is certainly not bad for a movie that only cost a hair over $ 20 million. You know where I’m going with this; box office cash means sequel, or in this case, prequel. It was announced earlier this year that Paramount was developing a new Pet Sematario film based on Stephen King’s bestseller, but this time, it will serve as an origin story.

With production in the Pet Sematario prequel set to begin next month, the cast has begun to reunite, and Variety has reported that the only Pam Grier has signed. Unfortunately, it is not known what kind of character she will play, but Pam Grier is a welcome addition to any movie. The cast includes Jackson White (Mrs. Fletcher) as a young Jud Crandall, as well as Forrest Goodluck (The reborn), Jack Mulhern (Easttown Mare), Natalie Alyn Lind (The Goldbergs) and Isabella Star LaBlanc (Long, slow exhalation). The prequel will serve as the feature film directorial debut of Lindsey Beer, the screenwriter behind Sierra Burgess is a loser and the next Star trek continuation. Jeff Buhler, who wrote the script for the 2019 remake, returns once again to write the script for the prequel. Shortly after the release of the remake, Buhler teased that they were already talking about a follow-up that would dig. “in the mythology of the town, these rituals that the children present, the mythology of the Micmac, the Wendigo, the cemetery, the origins and the life of Jud.“
