“The Lost Boys” Television Show Pushed Back

Back in August, we reported that the CW network had a television adaptation of famed vampire film The Lost Boys in the works (read it here); now the network announces that it will be pushed back to the next development cycle according to The Hollywood Reporter.

While the Rob Thomas (iZombie) helmed version of the vampire tale is still in the future for the network, they simply don’t have the space on their packed schedule to get it going this season. Rumor has it that network brass is still excited for the project that was pitched as a seven-season anthology spanning seven decades in the life of the main cast of vampires with each season covering a different decade; Season One will be based in San Francisco during the 1960’s hippie movement. read more

LOST BOYS LEATHER JACKET TO BE SOLD IN ONLINE AUCTION

Prop Store is pleased to bring vampire Dwayne’s (Billy Wirth) Death Scene Leather Jacket and Costume from the  80’s classic The Lost Boys to their online auction site. Joel Schumacher’s 1987 vampire classic pitted a deadly group of vampires against a pair of brothers in a battle to save their family. The Dwayne vampire jacket on offer comes from the character’s death scene in which Sam (Corey Haim) shoots the vampire with an arrow, sending him back into a stereo which electrocutes him. Resembling a heavily worn biker outfit, this black leather Schott jacket fea- tures a hand-painted jaguar on the right shoulder, which extends down the arm. The sleeves have been cut at the elbow to accommodate Dwayne’s arms exploding during his electrocution. A long cut in the back of the jacket was likely involved with hiding the extensive effects rigging used to explode the character’s arms and head. Offered with the jacket is a pair black Levi jeans marked “B. Wirth” on the inside, referring to the actor. read more
