Zac Efron will star in Firestarter, a new adaptation of Stephen King’s classic novel to be produced bu Blumhouse Films.
The film centers on a young girl who develops the ability to start fires with her mind, as well as the ability to see the future. She is abducted by a mysterious government agency that plans to weaponize her superhuman skills.
Zac will play the winsome young pyrokinetic girl that Drew Barrymore made famous in the original 1984 movie.
HA! Just kidding. He’ll probably play the father. But that would be good right? Zac in little blonde pigtails?
Zac will also be seen in the upcoming remake of Three Men and a Baby.
