Stephen King movie news keeps flooding in.... Various studios are looking into new films based on The Dark Tower, Maximum Overdrive, Firestarter, and The Stand. One film that's been rumored for some time is Pet Sematary, and now there is word that it's closer to becoming a reality.

"Matthew Greenberg, the writer of "1408" (also based on a King work), is set to turn in his script for a new version of the tale, according to a person briefed on the project who was not authorized to speak about it publicly. And executives at studio Paramount have put out the word to at least two representatives in the agent community that they are seeking a high-level director to tackle the material."
