It is a good time to be a fan of Stephen King’s. With movie adaptations like IT and THE DARK TOWER making waves, it looks as though King’s tales are making a major imprint on pop culture, as if they hadn’t already.
In April of last year Jason Blum made the announcement hat Blumhouse was teaming up with Akiva Goldsman to develop a new adaptation of Stephen King's FIRESTARTER, and now the project looks to really be picking up some steam as a director has been selected.
Faith Akin will be the director of the new FIRESTARTER film, and will be written by Scottt Teems. The screenplay will be based on the 1980 Stephen King book about a telekinetic child named Charlie and the organization known as The Shop that will do anything to capture her and exploit her powers.
The 1984 original film saw a young Drew Barrymore playing a girl who could create fires using her mind.
The FIRESTARTER remake will be the fifth time that Blumhouse and Goldman have worked together. Goldman wrote the upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s DARK TOWER.
