Plot

Presumably follows the same story of the original movie. The following comment was made by the director Keith Thomas:

According to its director, Keith Thomas, the fact that 1984’s Firestarter exists is actually a benefit to the developing production. Thanks to that film being a mostly straight adaptation of the Stephen King source material, it’s going to allow the new movie to do some things it otherwise may have not been able to pull off, and focus on elements of the story that weren’t fully fleshed out previously.
