Blumhouse has officially found their Charlie McGee for the upcoming remake of Firestarter starring Zac Efron. Per Deadline, Ryan Kiera Armstrong has been cast in the lead role of the film adaptation from Blumhouse, Weed Road Pictures, and Universal, based on the original horror novel by Stephen King.
Armstrong is no stranger to the horror genre, already having acted in several notable franchises. She joined the cast of American Horror Story and also made a memorable appearance in It Chapter Two, facing off against Bill Skarsgard‘s Pennywise in a particularly creepy scene. On Firestarter, she joins the previously cast Efron as well as Michael Greyeyes in the role of Rainbird.
This story is still developing.
