THR reports that Warner Bros. is gearing up for brand new, reimagined take on the 1980s teen vampire classic ‘The Lost Boy’s.
Noah Jupe (A Quiet Place), and Jaeden Martell (IT) are reported to star. Randy McKinnon, who is already working on Warner/DC’s Static Shock project, will write the new Lost Boys with Jonathan Entwistle on board to direct. Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Fred Berger will produce via their Automatik banner.
The original Lost Boys was a horror-comedy that told of two brothers who, along with their newly divorced mother to a California beach town that, the pair soon discovers, is being terrorized by a stylish vampire biker gang. Also taking bites from scenes were a pair of comic book-loving brothers who thought themselves as vampire hunters. The movie, released in 1987, was directed by Joel Schumacher and starred Jason Patric, Kiefer Sutherland, Jami Gertz, Alex Winter, plus Corey Feldman and Corey Haim. Bringing up the age bracket were adults Dianne Wiest, Bernard Hughes, and Edward Herrmann. A TV adaption was at one point in the works at The CW.
