Akiva Goldsman Set To Direct 'Firestarter' Remake

Deadline brings word of yet another Stephen King property earmarked for adaptation: Firestarter, the 1980 sci-fi novel that spawned a feature adaptation four years later starring Drew Barrymore. 
This new incarnation has sparked into life over at Universal and Blumhouse, with the Oscar-winning Akiva Goldsman appointed to direct. Blumhouse’s Jason Blum fittingly made the announcement at the Overlook Film Festival in Oregon, which gets its name after the spooky haunted hotel that spawned a million nightmares in The Shining.

Details are few and far between at this early stage, but those of you familiar with the source material will know that Firestarter chronicles the story of a “young girl who develops pyrokinetic abilities and is abducted by a secret government agency that wants to harness her powerful gift as a weapon.”
