Primetime Emmy-nominated actress Gloria Reuben (Lincoln, “Mr. Robot”) is the latest to join the cast of Blumhouse and director Keith Thomas‘ (The Vigil) Firestarter, Deadline reports.
Ryan Kiera Armstrong (IT Chapter Two, “American Horror Story”) has been cast in the role of Charlie in the now-filming Stephen King adaptation, we learned earlier this week.
In Firestarter, “A young girl develops pyrokinetic abilities and is abducted by a secret government agency that wants to harness her powerful gift as a weapon.”
Zac Efron (Extremely Wicked) and Michael Greyeyes (Blood Quantum) star.
Firestarter has been adapted by writer Scott Teems (Halloween Kills, Rectify).
The film hails from Universal Pictures, Blumhouse Productions and Weed Road Productions.
Jason Blum and Academy Award® winner Akiva Goldsman will produce. Martha De Laurentiis, who was an associate producer on the 1984 adaptation of Firestarter starring a young Drew Barrymore, will executive produce. Firestarter reunites Goldsman and Blum who have previously collaborated on the Paranormal Activity franchise.
