The fire will burn again. Jason Blum and Akiva Goldsman will do a remake of King's Firestarter.

After the opening night screening at the Overlook Film Festival tonight, Akiva Goldsman and Jason Blum announced that they would be teaming up once again to bring Stephen King’s classic pyrokinetic tale back to the big screen.

Scott Teems (Rectify) will co-write the new adaptation with the Academy Award-winning Goldsman. Blum will produce under Blumhouse, and Martha de Laurentiis, an associate produce from the original, will executive produce.
