Fear the Walking Dead actors Sydney Lemmon and Michael Greyeyes star in the Blumhouse reboot of Stephen King’s novel adaptation, Firestarter (2022), available in theaters and on Peacock. This is the third of King’s adaptations to receive a modern makeover following Pet Semetary and IT, whose 80s versions have been rebooted.
Lemmon is known for her role as Isabelle on Fear TWD, and in season 7, she finally seemed to get her happily ever after when she and Al (Maggie Grace) realized they couldn’t live without each other.
Greyeyes portrayed Qaletaqa Walker in season 3 and was last seen aiding Nick at the Gonzalez Dam. He and Crazy Dog headed off in search of their people and were never again seen in the series.
Firestarter starring Syndey Lemmon and Michael Greyeyes
Lemmon plays Vicky, the mother to Charlie ((Ryan Kiera Armstrong), who possesses telekinetic powers, and Greyeyes, the mysterious operative, John Rainbird, tasked with hunting down the family.
Zac Efron plays Andy, husband to Vicky and father to Charlie, who has taught his daughter to control her power, but as she turns 11, it becomes more difficult. The family has been on the run for most of Charlie’s life as they try to hide her from a federal agency, known as The Shop, that only wants to harness her powers and weaponize them.
The 2022 version of Firestarter gives Vicky more storyline, whereas, in previous versions, she was only viewed in flashbacks. This provides the character with more appeal and viewers an emotional attachment to her.
This movie also stars Gloria Rueben, Kurtwood Smith and John Beasley.
Lemmen can also be seen in Velvet Buzzsaw, Helstrom, Succession and Law & Order: Special Victims Units.
Greyeyes is known for his roles in True Detective, I Know This Much is True, Wild Indian, Rutherford Falls, Home Before Dark, and Star Trek: Discovery.
