The film - which tells the story of a doctor who moves his family to the country only to discover their home is situated near a pet cemetery that rests on an ancient burial ground - is this time directed by Kevin K├Âlsch and Dennis Widmyer, and stars Jason Clarke, Amy Seimetz and John Lithgow.

King's 1983 book was first adapted into a film in 1989, and starred Dale Midkiff as Louise Creed.

Pet Sematary is set for cinemas in April 2019.

It's not the first time Stephen King's adaptations have been rebooted recently, with his famous IT novel getting the same treatment last year.

Remind yourself of the trailer for IT, which is set for a sequel.
