The film is on the calendar for release in April 2019.

The original "Pet Sematary", directed by Mary Lambert from a script by King, followed the unraveling of a family after moving into a new home in ME next to a pet cemetery where buried creatures came back from the dead.

For those unfamiliar with Pet Sematary, the story follows the Creed family as they move to a small town in the Northeast which borders a cemetery enabling the buried to return. Clarke can now be seen as Ted Kennedy in Chappaquiddick, a role that has earned him some praise. He has several movies in the can, among them Damien Chazelle's Neil Armstrong biopic First Man with Ryan Gosling, Aftermath with Keira Knightley and Serenity with Matthew McConaughey.

Clarke is repped by WME, Robert Stein Management, and attorney Carlos Goodman.
