Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.

The new adaptation of Stephen King's FIRESTARTER has been coming together since it was first announced back in 2017, and we have just learned that a new person will be in the director's chair.

Keith Thomas will direct the new FIRESTARTER film for Universal Pictures, Blumhouse Productions, and Akiva Goldsman’s Weed Road Productions.

Fatih Akin was previously set to direct.

The script was written by Scott Teems. The screenplay is set to 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.

King's novel was previously adapted for the big screen in a 1984 film directed by Mark. L. Lester and starring Drew Barrymore, with a TV sequel movie that followed in 2002.
