firestarter remake cast

Blumhouse’s new take on Stephen King‘s Firestarter has announced its first cast member: Zac Efron. There’s no indication of who Efron is playing, but it’s safe to assume he’s not going to play protagonist Charlie McGee, a little girl with the powers of pyrokinesis. Keith Thomas (The Vigil) will direct the film that is being adapted by writer Scott Teems (Halloween Kills, Rectify), who will also executive produce.

Three Men and a Baby remake

In early 2018, we heard that a Three Men and a Baby remake was in the works at Disney+. Now that movie has found one of its lead actors in a former Disney star: Zac Efron, who broke out thanks to his work in the High School Musical movies, will play one of the titular men in the new version.

At least we think that’s who he’s playing. I mean, if they wanted to, the folks at Disney could do some sort of wild digital de-aging and have him play the baby instead. Would that be super weird and remind us of that fake movie within Funny People in which Adam Sandler’s full-sized adult head is on a child’s body? Yes. But would it make us more intrigued to watch this remake? Also yes. Your move, Disney.

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.)

A lot can change in a lifetime, so said the meme-able tagline for The Irishman this year. But it doesn’t even take a full life to observe a radical change in the trajectory of a life, as shown by the many artists who changed the course of their careers during the 2010s. It’s one thing to stage a comeback when you’re down and out in the public eye – after all, who doesn’t love an underdog story? – and another to successfully execute a 180-degree shift when things are going fairly smoothly.

This list pays tribute to those in the industry who pulled off pivots that caught us off-guard but did their job of redefining an already established star image. You might notice a running theme in this list: it’s disproportionately male, white and straight, unfortunately. This indicates that there is still room for the industry to improve in the 2020s and allow more opportunities for women, people of color and LGBTQ+ artists to spread their wings and avoid becoming pigeonholed into a single identity. But given the breadth of artists reshaping a well-known persona in this decade, they have many great playbooks to run.
