‘Firestarter’ Clips Unleash the Fury of Charlie’s Supernatural Powers

Coming to theaters as well as the Peacock streaming service this Friday, May 13, the latest Stephen King re-adaptation is Firestarter, courtesy of Universal, Blumhouse and director Keith Thomas (The Vigil). Two new clips have been shared by Universal this week, and they give us a glimpse of Charlie’s supernatural powers. Expect our review later this week!

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.”

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!

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 in Firestarter. Efron is playing the father of 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.
