The CW is now developing The Lost Boys TV series.
The CW is developing a new TV series based around the hit 1987 vampire series The Lost Boys.
According to The Wrap
, the new TV series will be written by iZombie showrunner Rob Thomas and the show will be executive produced by Danielle Stokdyk, Dan Etheridge, Mike Karz and Bill Bindley.
The original movie centered around two brothers, played by Jason Patric and Corey Haim, who fights a gang of vampires, led by Kiefer Sutherland, in Southern California.
The Lost Boys
grossed over $32 million and critics loved it. Roger Ebert
gave the movie two-and-a-half out of four stars, praising the cinematography and "a cast that's good right down the line," but ultimately describing Lost Boys
as a triumph of style over substance and "an ambitious entertainment that starts out well but ends up selling its soul." Elaine Showalter
said that "the film brilliantly portrays vampirism as a metaphor for the kind of mythic male bonding that resists growing up, commitment, especially marriage."
The new project comes after The Vampire Diaries
announced their final season, which is now filming in Atlanta, Georgia.
