Pet Semetary remake- who stars?

Even if you don't like the idea that they're remaking "Pet Sematary", you can't argue with this: 

JOHN LITHGOW is playing Jud Crandall . . . the kindly old neighbor who introduces Dr. Louis Creed to the evil pet cemetery, in a misguided attempt to help Creed's daughter deal with her grief over the death of her cat.

Jud was played by FRED GWYNNE . . . a.k.a. Herman Munster . . . in the 1989 original.
