Zac Efron, who has actually grown loads since his Excessive Faculty Musical Disney days, commented on the image on his Twitter account, saying, “That is a wrap on #firestarter film! cannot watch for you guys to see this. @ryankarmstrong @blumhouse.”
Firestarter tells the story of a younger woman with the facility of pyrokenisis, the power to star fires along with her thoughts, who finds herself being pursued by authorities brokers wanting to make use of her powers for their very own achieve. Director Keith Thomas beforehand spoke to ComicBook.com in regards to the new tackle the film and what followers of the e-book can count on.
“It is one thing I’ve thought loads about,” Thomas mentioned. “And, actually, when the undertaking first got here to me, I used to be very fortunate in that the script by Scott Teems, who wrote the upcoming Halloween Kills, was simply very, excellent, and really wealthy. The fabric itself is not completely different, proper? I imply, it is the identical e-book that this movie is drawing from, the one the sooner movie did. However what we’re leaning into from the e-book is completely different. That is the angle the place you are able to do one thing. So, for me, it was actually leaning into extra emotional elements. It was leaning into parenthood and what that appears like, after which, how do you elevate a baby, particularly a baby with talents like this. That was the place the script went and I assumed that it was one thing that is a bit completely different than the unique movie.”
He continued, “Additionally, the e-book’s tremendous wealthy. There’s quite a lot of stuff that is within the e-book that is not within the authentic movie. There’s stuff in there that we’re utilizing, that we’re going into. On the similar time, I really feel like, only for me, when it comes to the movies I am inquisitive about, I really feel like there is a visceral high quality to the story that I did not see within the ’80s model, a rawness that I believe is there within the e-book, that I actually felt, that I am actually inquisitive about diving into. And, fortunately, I believe everyone else concerned feels the identical method, that that is going to be … not solely will it have the results and you are going to get to see all of the stuff Charlie can do, which is enjoyable, and funky, and thrilling, but when we do it proper, it is not a lot as darkish as The Vigil, however you must come out of it emotional. For those who do it proper, it is going to actually hit that method.”
Whether or not this new model can seize what many believed was missed within the authentic film, we’ll simply have to attend and see when the film arrives in theaters.
