This will probably be the directorial debut of the screenwriter-turned-director.
One of the hottest screenwriters in Hollywood at present, Lindsey Beer, is ready to make her directorial debut with the sequel to the 2019 adaptation of Stephen King’s horror masterpiece, Pet Sematary, as first reported by Deadline. Following in the footsteps of the unique 1989 movie and its 1992 sequel directed by Mary Lambert, studio executives deemed it necessary to decide on a feminine filmmaker to helm this new installment in the Pet Sematary franchise.

There has been no announcement relating to plot particulars for the Pet Sematary follow-up. King himself has known as Pet Sematary his scariest novel, and the 1989 movie was a reasonably trustworthy adaptation. It informed the story of Louis Creed, a Chicago doctor who accepts a job at a University in Maine and strikes his household there. When tragedy strikes the household, he realizes the cemetery in the woods behind his home could comprise particular powers to assist him. The 1992 sequel continued that narrative, with a brand new household transferring into the space and listening to the identical lore about the cemetery.
