Director Teases Upcoming Stephen King Adaptation ‘Firestarter’; Written by ‘Halloween Kills’ Writer

While we wait for his horror movie The Vigil, director Keith Thomas has teased his next project in a chat with Zavvi: a new adaptation of Stephen King‘s Firestarter for Blumhouse.

The screenplay was written by Halloween Kills co-writer Scott Teems, and Thomas notes during his interview with Zavvi that he’s hoping to begin filming the movie this year.

When Jason [Blum] pitched it to me it was exciting, as that’s one of my favourite Stephen King novels, and whilst I really like the 1980’s film, I felt we could do something new,” Thomas told the site, adding that King himself has read the script and approved him as director.

He continued, “The screenplay is by Scott Teems who wrote the upcoming Halloween Kills, it’s an amazing script. It has everything you would want, people’s heads catching fire and their faces melting off, and a dad and daughter on the run trying to survive being chased in this heightened tense experience. We are hoping to film it this year, and it will be a lot of fun.”

“Based on King’s classic novel, the story follows a young girl who develops pyrokinetic abilities and is abducted by a secret government agency that wants to harness her powerful gift as a weapon.”

Drew Barrymore starred in the 1984 film adaptation, directed by Mark L. Lester.
