Warner Bros. Planning Film Remake Of ‘The Lost Boys’

At long last, The Lost Boys can once again sleep all day, party all night and never grow old.

For some time, it was thought that the 1987 cult classic vampire flick would find a home as a TV series on The CW, but this week it was learned that Warner Bros. is working on a feature film reboot, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

And two young genre actors have already been inked for the project–Noah Jupe (A Quiet Place, No Sudden Move) and Jaeden Martell (It, Knives Out) will lead the cast.

Jonathan Entwistle (I Am Not Okay With This) will direct the film from a screenplay by Randy McKinnon (Chambers). Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Fred Berger will produce the feature.

Plot details are being kept under wraps at this early juncture, but it was revealed that the remake will be set in the modern day.

The original The Lost Boys–directed by Joel Schumacher from a screenplay by Jeffrey Boam–features an up-and-coming ensemble cast of Corey Haim, Jason Patric, Kiefer Sutherland, Jami Gertz and Corey Feldman. The movie follows two brothers who move to a beach town in California that is having its problems with a vampire biker gang.

The Lost Boys was a critical and commercial success, raking in more than $32 million on an $8.5-million budget. The original gave birth to two sequels and two comic book series.
