Akiva Goldsman to direct Firestarter remake

The script writer of Academy award winning A Beautiful Mind (2001) Akiva Goldsman is set to direct the Firestarter remake.

The 1984 version of the film based on Stephen King’s novel was directed by Mark L. Lester but never became a major success, thus now it looks like Akiva Goldsman has a chance to build and improve on its predecessor.
