Warner Bros. Developing The Lost Boys Reboot Film

September 17, 2021 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Warner Bros. is bringing The Lost Boys back to the big screen, developing a “reimagined take” on the 1980s vampire classic. THR reports that Randy McKinnon, who is also writing the Static Shock film for DC, will script the new film with Jonathan Entwistle set to direct.

The new film will star Noah Jupe (A Quiet Place) and Jaeden Martell (It, The Lodge). Plot details are not yet known, though it is being described as set in the modern day.

The original 1987 film starred Jason Patric and Corey Haim as two brothers who move with their single mom (Dianne Wiest) to Santa Carla, California to live with their estranged grandfather. They soon find out that not only is Santa Carla the murder capital of the world — it’s also infested with vampires, seemingly led by the charismatic David (Kiefer Sutherland). They have to ally with a pair of comic book-loving brothers (Corey Feldman & Jamison Newlander) who fancy themselves to be vampire hunters.

The film was a minor financial success and Warner Bros. has sought to revive the franchise multiple times, including two direct-to-video sequels and several attempts at TV series for The CW, all of which were passed on.
