Amidst so many unnecessary reboots/remakes
like Yellow Submarine, here's one we're excited about!
The De Laurentiis Company has started work on a Firestarter reboot, which they're looking to turn into a new franchise. So far, Vacancy screenwriter Mark L. Smith is attached to the project.
The film will be loosely based on the Stephen King novel, which the original film was based on, but they're looking to give the main character "a little more edge."
Here's what Martha De Laurentiis had to say about the new Firestarter:
"We see this as a unique, character-driven thriller with a supernatural edge, based on a timeless concept and enhanced by recent visual effects advances."
We wonder if they'll bring Drew Barrymore on for a cameo.
Are U excited for another Firestarter film? Do U think it's a good idea?
