The Lost Boys, Joel Schumacher’s cult vampire movie from 1987, is getting a reboot for television.
Back in 2016, the CW had been interested in a reboot penned by Rob Thomas, but then they passed on the pilot. Now, the network has started looking into adapting the horror-comedy flick for TV, headed by Grey’s Anatomy writer Heather Mitchell, according to Deadline.
“Welcome to sunny seaside Santa Carla, home to a beautiful boardwalk, all the cotton candy you can eat…and a secret underworld of vampires,” a description of the new series reads according to NME. “After the sudden death of their father, two brothers move to Santa Carla with their mother, who hopes to start anew in the town where she grew up. But the brothers find themselves drawn deeper and deeper into the seductive world of Santa Carla’s eternally beautiful and youthful undead.”
