IT Chapter 2, Pet Sematary and Other Upcoming Stephen King Movie Remakes | rainCHECK

STEPHEN KING novels are on a roll! Aside from the first-time movie and TV adaptations that came out recently and those that are still in production, remakes of films based on his best sellers are on a steady streak with no signs of stopping.

The 1984 thriller “CHILDREN OF THE CORN” which is based on King’s 1977 short story was the first to get a direct-to-video reboot in 2011. The sequel to this will come out as well as a DTV release this year (2017).

This was followed in 2013 by the third film adaptation of the 1976 chilling masterpiece “CARRIE” – this is the first of Stephen King’s novel that was adapted into film.

IT was a huge success this year! The film was a reboot of the 1990 miniseries based on King’s 1986 novel. IT Chapter 2 is now currently being developed and is expected to be released in 2019.

Two Stephen King movie reboots are also in development – “FIRESTARTER” (1984) and “PET SEMATARY” (1989).

Various news outlets recently revealed that “Pet Sematary” is going to be directed by indie horror filmmakers Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer. Kolsch and Widmyer are the geniuses behind the 2014 creepy horror flick “STARRY EYES.”

There have been rumors about a remake of “Pet Sematary” since 2010 but it never materialized. With Kolsch and Widmyer at the helm, Stephen King fans are hopeful that the reboot will finally push through.

“Pet Sematary” is probably King’s most scariest novel that explores on the subject of death, resurrection, soul and pure evil. I believe that we’re in for a great scare very soon!
