Normally I couldn’t give a sh*t about a remake to Firestarter, but it’s hard to ignore any project being produced by Steven Schneider and his Room 101 banner. Variety reports that Room 101, along with Universal, are looking to reignite the Firestarter flame. The studio and Dino De Laurentiis Co. have teamed to reboot the 1984 horror pic, with Mark L. Smith (Vacancy, The Hole) onboard to pen the script. Based on the Stephen King tome, the studio aims to turn the reboot into a franchise property. The 1984 pic starred Drew Barrymore as a girl able to start fires at will. It grossed $17 million at the domestic B.O. and was also produced through U and De Laurentiis’ Co. The SyFy channel aired Firestarter 2: Rekindled back in 2002. The plot details for the reboot are being kept under wraps. It’s expected to be loosely based on the original King book, but the main character is to be reinvented with a little more edge.
