The upcoming new installment of the Pet Sematary franchise, set to air exclusively on Paramount+, has added legendary actress Pam Grier (Foxy Brown, Jackie Brown, Mars Attacks) to its cast, Variety reports.
Grier joins previously announced cast members Natalie Alyn Lind (“Big Sky”), Forrest Goodluck (The Revenant), Jack Mulhern (“Mare of Easttown”), and newcomer Isabella Star LaBlanc, with Jackson White (“Mrs. Fletcher”) playing a young version of Jud Crandall.
As we reported earlier this month, the movie will serve as a prequel to the Stephen King classic with which Lindsey Beer (Sierra Burgess Is a Loser) will be making her directorial debut. Beer also wrote the latest draft of the movie’s script originally written by Jeff Buhler who penned the 2019 adaptation of the classic.
At this time the film’s title has yet to be announced. It is set to begin filming this August. We’ll keep you posted.
