On February 9th, a trailer for the new adaptation of Stephen King’s 1980 novel Firestarter was released. The upcoming Blumhouse film is directed by Keith Thomas, written by Scott Teems, and will star Ryan Kiera Armstrong as Charlie, with Zac Efron attached to appear as Charlie’s father, Andy McGee. This will be the second big-screen adaptation of Firestarter, following the 1984 version, directed by Mark L. Lester and starred Drew Barrymore as Charlie McGee and David Keith as Andrew McGee. However, this new adaptation has a lot of potential to level up the story and deliver a movie that sets sparks alight, especially with John Carpenter attached as the reboot’s composer.
Blumhouse’s Firestarter reboot can work with talent like Zac Efron, Ryan Kiera Armstrong, Michael Greyeyes, and John Carpenter.Read MoreMovieWeb – Feed
