Lots of news has bled out recently about CW’s Lost Boys reboot. According to Deadline, former Teen Wolf star Tyler Posey has landed one of the main roles in the series along with Kiele Sanchez. It was also announced that Dakota Shapiro and Medalion Rahimi have been selected as supporting characters.
In her return to the vampire genre, Catherine Hardwicke, who directed Twilight, will direct the pilot episode of the series which was written by Heather Mitchell.
What will the series be about you ask? Well, we have the official synopsis of the series which reads:
Still mourning the death of her husband, Lucy (Sanchez) is forced to move back home to Santa Carla — something she’s dreaded since causing a town scandal 27 years ago, when she ditched her boyfriend to run off with another man. Lucy’s elder son, Michael’s (Posey) plan to attend Columbia Medical school is thrown off by the diagnosis that he shares the same genetic weakness that killed his father. The only thing that consoles him is the friendship he strikes up with Stella (Rahimi), a young woman who runs a concession stand on the Santa Carla boardwalk. Rahimi’s Stella, carefree and Californian, has an immediate spark with Michael (Posey), but she’s not single: Her boyfriend is the sexy, dangerous and immortal vampire David (Shapiro). And now she’ll have to choose between the living and the undead…
Lost Boys is nothing short of a horror classic and when speaking of the great vampire films of all time it is almost a lock that the flick gets a mention. Will this reboot be too sparkly for fans of the 1987 classic? Only time will tell.
