Will Firestarter’s Box Office Failure Kill Stephen King Movies?

As a result, the failure of Firestarter could send director Kurt Wimmer’s already-delayed Children of the Corn remake straight to VOD, even though it will likely do little to dampen enthusiasm for Salem’s Lot. Salem’s Lot is adapted from a critically acclaimed miniseries (and novel), whereas both Children of the Corn and 2022’s flawed Firestarter remake are based on 80s movies that critics also panned the first time around. Following Dr. Sleep’s failure, Firestarter’s especially weak debut will almost inevitably discourage further big-budget big-screen investment in the author for the time being.

However, all hope is not lost for King fans. Some of King’s best adaptations have been television miniseries, and some of the author’s most underrated movie adaptations have been mid-budget releases that weren’t surrounded by hype. The likes of 1408 and Misery were not costly productions like Firestarter, meaning they weren’t as heavily touted and didn’t flop upon release as a result. While some of King’s storytelling is epic in scope, many of the author’s stories are self-contained and perfectly suited to low-budget adaptations like the terrifying Gerald’s Game. As such, Firestarter’s failure won’t kill Stephen King adaptations entirely, even if it does contribute to a slow down in the number of big-budget blockbusters based on the writer’s work.
