Stephen King’s Fire Starter: 8 Quick Things We Know About The Zac Efron Movie
Firestarter will technically be the third film based on Stephen King’s book
Stephen King’s writing career has been closely linked to Hollywood from the start, with adaptations to his work going on for almost as long as he has published books, and Firestarter is part of that story. Director Mark L. Lester brought the story to the big screen four years after the novel was published, starring Drew Barrymore, David Keith and George C. Scott. In 2002, a sequel as a miniseries titled Firestarter 2: Rekindled starring Marguerite Moreau, Malcolm McDowell and Dennis Hopper was developed. It probably goes without saying, but this new film will exist entirely separate from these productions (though the filmmakers take notes).
