In March 2019, producer Di Bonaventura admitted that a prequel to the film is possible if the film is a success financially, saying, “I generally don‘t start thinking about [sequels] until they‘re a success. 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.”

Talks for a new adaptation of Pet Sematary began in March 2010, with Greenberg initially writing the screenplay. Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Steven Schneider were revealed to be producing the remake with Juan Carlos Fresnadillo in talks to direct it. By December 2017, Paramount Pictures had greenlit a new adaptation of Stephen King‘s novel with duo filmmakers Kolsch and Widmyer directing it. Principal photography commenced on June 18, 2018, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Filming wrapped August 11, 2018.

The film is scheduled for release in the United States on April 5, 2019, by Paramount Pictures. It received positive reviews from critics, with many calling it one of the best Stephen King adaptations.
