Warning: SPOILERS for Firestarter! 2022's Firestarter reboot makes some major changes from the 1980 Stephen King novel on which it is based.
The book follows the story of a father and daughter on the run from a government agency due to the daughter’s psychic ability to spontaneously create fires.
Zac Efron stars as Andy McGee as he attempts to protect his daughter, Charlie (Ryan Kiera Armstrong), from both the agency and herself.
Firestarter was previously adapted for the big screen in 1984, starring a young Drew Barrymore in the role of Charlie. This rendering of King’s story follows the source material very closely but the film isn’t considered among the best King adaptations.Read more on screenrant.com
