Is A Pet Sematary Prequel Possible?
Recently, the remake of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary was released worldwide. It has some major changes from the original and now one of the horror producers talk about to go in a different direction of the story.
King’s novel was first published in 1983, which first was adapted to a feature film in 1989, then a sequel 1992. Although, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura has mentioned that there is a chance of a prequel of these characters, which would mean a story that leads up to this movie.
After the success from IT (2017), another King’s adaption which has become very popular, di Bonaventura has discussed or mentioned a possible sequel to this movie. But he has also talked about a prequel to this movie, as long it goes well at the box office.
“I think if there’s anything here, there’s a prequel. I think if you look at the book, we didn’t cover all that stuff that happens before the Creed family moves in. So, I think there’s a movie there, and I think I’d be particularly interested in doing that, because, again, it’s the source material and you are going toward something that also has a lot of crazy, creepy feelings about it.”
Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura has shared more interest in a backstory to this movie with more supernatural and the origin of these characters. Most likely, it’s because of the ill-fated sequel Paramount Pictures produced in 1992.
