New Stephen King Movie

It’s a very good time to be a Stephen King fan. Besides It and The Dark Towermovies on the way and The Mist coming to TV, there’s now another King story getting retold on the big screen: a new adaptation of his 1980 novel, Firestarter.

A young Drew Barrymore starred in the 1984 film adaptation of the book, which focuses around a young girl with pyrokinetic abilities named Charlie, on the run from a sinister government agency intent on weaponizing her powers. The new version was announced at the Overlook Film Festival last night, and is in the works at Universal with mega-producer Akiva Goldsman tapped to direct, while Rectify’s Scott Teems will pen the script.
