The official trailer for the remake of the 80s classic horror movie, “Firestarter,” can be seen right here. The remake is based on an adaptation of Stephen King’s novel of the same name. The film will be out in Theatres on May 13 with a same date premiere on Peacock.

Charlie (Ryan Kiera Armstrong) is a little girl who gains pyrokinetic superpowers and is seized by a government entity that wants to utilise her gift as a weapon in the film, which is based on Stephen King’s 1980 novel and the 1984 original picture.

Charlie’s mother is played by Sydney Lemmon, and her father is played by everyone favourite guy, Zac Efron. The film also stars Michael Greyeyes, Gloria Reuben, Kurtwood Smith, and John Beasley.

Armstrong’s Charlie fights bad villains with fire in the explosive trailer, while her parents struggle to protect her. In the trailer, Efron adds, “She just has to shove it down and keep it hidden.” He goes on to say, in the trailer, “Our responsibility is to protect her. If they catch her, they’re gonna put her in a cage. They’re gonna run tests on her for the rest of her life. We’ll never see her again.”

Keith Thomas directs a script written and adpated by Scott Teems . The movie is produced by Universal Pictures, Blumhouse Productions, and Weed Road Productions. The remake is executive produced by the late, Martha De Laurentiis, who worked as an associate producer on the original film in 1984, as well as producers Jason Blum and Akiva Goldsman, who previously worked together on the “Paranormal Activity” franchise.
