Hello everyone, I am new to this wonderful forum and have a question for anybody who may know Mr.King personally, mainly wondering if myself and a group of people would have Mr. Kings permission to remake the second pet sematary :)

That's the word used by the industry to mean that someone else already owns the film rights.
I’ve read King filed notices that he intends to terminate the transfer of his licenses for the movies The Dead Zone, Cujo, Creepshow, Children of the Corn, Cat’s Eye, and Firestarter, in the US. And by September of this year he'll will have regained full US movie rights to a number of his stories.

Does he have a doctrine (or concept) on how his works will have to be handled if a studio wanted to make a sequel or remake of any of these movies?

You'd most likely have to get permission from the people who own the film rights. How would you be distributing the film if you were allowed to do it? Would it be for-profit?
Yes, but mostly in the sense of paying those who work on it with us :) With how we would be doing the scene, it wouldn't take very much money, no where NEAR how much it took to make the original :)

That's usually covered in the contracts.

You didn't mention your plans for distributing it, but it sounds like you'd need to get permission from the current rights holder. I don't know off the top of my head who that currently is.

Sorry for the late reply, didn't see the reply till now for some reason :(

The plans for distribution would mainly be local theaters, DVD sales, and on youtube as well :)
