‘Firestarter’ Remake Trailer – New Stephen King Adaptation Comes to Peacock in May!

A remake of Stephen King‘s Firestarter is on the way from Universal, Blumhouse and director Keith Thomas (The Vigil), and today brings the trailer for the latest King adaptation.

Additionally, we’ve learned the Firestarter remake is coming to theaters and Peacock on May 13, 2022! Check out your first look at the brand new Stephen King movie below.

Oh and by the way, the Firestarter score is composed by the legendary John Carpenter (Halloween, Christine, The Fog) and his fellow Halloween franchise composers Cody Carpenter and Daniel Davies. This is especially cool considering Carpenter was originally going to direct the 1980s version of Firestarter, but ultimately departed the project!

In Firestarter, “A young girl develops pyrokinetic abilities and is abducted by a secret government agency that wants to harness her powerful gift as a weapon.”

Ryan Kiera Armstrong (IT Chapter Two, “American Horror Story”) is playing Charlie in the new Stephen King remake, and Sydney Lemmon will be playing Charlie’s mother.

Zac Efron (Extremely Wicked), Michael Greyeyes (Blood Quantum), and Gloria Reuben (Lincoln, “Mr. Robot”) also star. Efron is playing the father of main character Charlie.

The film also stars Kurtwood Smith (Amityville: The Awakening, Hitchcock) and John Beasley (The Purge: Anarchy, The Sum of All Fears).

Firestarter has been adapted by writer Scott Teems (Halloween Kills, Rectify). The new movie hails from Universal Pictures, Blumhouse Productions and Weed Road Productions.

Jason Blum and Academy Award® winner Akiva Goldsman will produce. The late Martha De Laurentiis, who was an associate producer on the 1984 adaptation of Firestarter starring a young Drew Barrymore, executive produces the brand new movie. Firestarter reunites Goldsman and Blum, who have previously collaborated on the Paranormal Activity franchise.

Stay tuned for a complete breakdown of the trailer by our weekly Stephen King podcast, The Losers’ Club. In the meantime, Constant Readers can revisit their book episode on the iconic novel at the bottom of this article.
