Warner Bros. is resurrecting the 1980s vampire cult hit The Lost Boys starring Noah Jupe and Jaeden Martell. Jupe gave electrifying performances in A Quiet Place thrillers and Martell was equally stunning in the classic Stephen King It movies. Jonathan Entwistle (The End of the F***ing World) has been tapped to direct and Randy McKinnon (originally ) is penning the new script. The casting is the first step to a great film and so far, my creepy Kreepsters, this looks like a wonderful winning move.
Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Fred Berger are producing while Zac Frognowski and Josh Glick are executive producers.
Originally directed by Joel Schumacher, The Lost Boys (1988) starred Corey Haim, Corey Feldman, Kiefer Sutherland, Jason Patric, Alex Winter, Dianne Wiest and Jami Gertz.
Teenage brothers Michael and Sam move with their mother to a small town in northern California. While the younger Sam meets a pair of kindred spirits in geeky comic-book nerds Edward and Alan, the angst-ridden Michael soon falls for Star — who turns out to be in thrall to David, leader of a local gang of vampires. Sam and his new friends must save Michael and Star from the undead.
