The success of the new movie adaptation of "It" has sparked interest in remaking Stephen King's other books — starting with "Pet Sematary."
"It" director Andy Muschietti and sister/producer Barbara Muschietti really want to get their hands on it.
"My affection for 'Pet Sematary' will go on until I die," Andy Muschietti told Entertainment Weekly. "I will always dream about the possibility of making a movie."
"Pet Sematary" was adapted into a movie in 1989, starring Denise Crosby and Dale Midkiff as a young couple who move in next to a haunted burial ground.
The Muschiettis are working on a sequel to "It," but afterward, hope to tackle "Pet Sematary." One complication: Paramount still holds the rights to the book, while they made "It" for Warner Bros.
"I really hope we can do it. But if we do it, we have to do it justice, like we did with It," Barbara Muschietti said. "The versions we read in the past years, the scripts we've read, have not been, in our opinion, representative of the book."
