The reboot of the popular 80s vampire film has been something CW has been considering since 2016. The network has confirmed that it has officially ordered a pilot of the reboot. Rob Thomas, the creator of Veronica Mars and IZombie was originally set to be the showrunner, executive producer, and writer through Spondoolie Productions. Due to a busy schedule with the Veronica Mars revival that is set to be released on Hulu later this year, Rob remains on the project but just as the executive producer. The Lost Boys TV pilot is set to be directed by Catherine Hardwicke, who directed Twilight. Hardwicke will be working off a script that was created by Heather Mitchell (Writer from Scandal)
After the sudden death of their beloved father, two brothers move to Santa Carla with their mom, in hopes to have a fresh start in a town where their mom grew up. The brothers find themselves drawn deeper and deeper into the seductive world of Santa Carla’s beautiful and youthful undead.
So far what we know about the cast is listed below:
Rio Mangini from the 2018 show Everything Sucks! Is cast to play Sam. Michael’s younger brother who has a high level of literacy and snark and seems to be the only one not enchanted by Santa Clara.
Del Zamora is cast to play Frank Garcia, he is described as Lucy’s father, an old hippie who owns a beloved local bed and breakfast. Although he has a pretty laid back appearance he is a very strict disciplinarian who knows more about the dark side of town than he likes to share.
Sarah Hay is cast to play Mollie. Mollie was turned into a vampire by David and has become her makers rival for leadership of the vampire gang. She only travels in a small pack with her eight-year-old son Laddie. Along the group is her guardian Hiram who makes sure she doesn’t get in too much trouble.
Cheyenne Hayes is cast to play Frog’s sister Liza.
Haley Tju is cast to play Frog’s other sister Cassie.
The Frog sisters are lightly goth, teenage locals, that work at a comic book store. They seem to be the only ones aware of the darkness lurking in their town before Sam shows up.
Tyler Posey from Supergirl and Teen Wolf is cast to play the central character Michael, the troubled new kid in town.
Kiele Sanchez Is cast to play Michael’s mother, Lucy, who is looking for a fresh start by moving to the town in which she grew up.
Medalion Rahimi is cast as Stella, and Dakota Shapiro is cast as David, both of which are main cast roles.
There is no specific release date but the estimated guess is early 2020. Stay tuned for more updates in the near future.
