Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, director of 28 Weeks Later, will direct the upcoming Pet Sematary remake.

Variety reports that Fresnadillo (Intacto, Intruders) will direct from the script by Matt Greenberg and David Kajganich, based on the classic novel by Stephen King. Lorenzo di Bonaventura will produce the remake about a family who move close to a Native American burial ground and find out why those Native Americans stopped using it. The ground is sour…

Mary Lambert directed the original film, starring Dale Midkiff, Denise Crosby and Fred Gwynne, which was responsible for giving many of us nightmares about poor Zelda.

You can buy the original Pet Sematary on DVD for £4 at Amazon.co.uk.
