Firestarter remake is set to start filming

Earlier this year we heard about the upcoming remake of Firestarter the classic Stephen King novel turned to a classic horror film.

The screenwriter Scott Teems told movieweb today that they would like to start filming the remake this year, which is set to be released by Blumhouse.

I’m still the writer. We just got a new director named Keith Thomas and he made a great film called The Vigil coming up this year, and Universal and Blumhouse, they want to make Firestarter. It has always been an important project to them. I think we’re making active steps toward that happening this year. You know, the industry shut down notwithstanding, and that may change things, but right now, I’m really hopeful that it might happen this year.

We are excited for the new remake and hope that the film does not let us down.
