Additional casting for The CW The Lost Boy series reveals that the fan-favorite characters from the first movie, the Frog Brothers, have been dropped in favor of the Frog Sisters.
The original 1987 movie starred Corey Feldman as Edgar Frog with Jamison Newlander as Alan Frog, who worked at a comic book shop and knew all about how to hunt down and kill the vampires.
The new series for The CW sees the Frog Brothers replaced in favor of the Frog Sisters, played by Cheyenne Haynes (Camping) and Haley Tju (Bella and the Bulldogs) (actresses pictured below). Similar to the movie, the Frog sisters work at a comic shop and are described as: “Sharp, cool and lightly Goth, the Frog Sisters are teenage locals who work at Santa Carla’s comic-book store. Until Sam arrives, they think they’re the only ones aware of the darkness in this town.”
Additional casting includes that Sarah Hay (Flesh and Bone) will play Mollie, a character that David turned into a vampire. Mollie has become her maker’s rival for leadership of the vampire gang. She travels in a small pack with her eternally 8-year-old son, Laddie, and a guardian, Hiram, who’s there to make sure she doesn’t get into too much trouble.
As previously announced, former Teen Wolf star Tyler Posey will play the role of Michael; Kiele Sanchez (Kingdom) is playing the mother, Lucy; Medalion Rahimi (My Dead Ex) is playing Stella (a version of Star), and Dakota Shapiro (Valley of the Boom) is playing David.
Catherine Hardwicke, who directed the first Twilight movie is directing the pilot episode, from Warner Bros TV, Spondoolie Prods and Gulfstream TV.
The series is described as:
Written by Heather Mitchell, The Lost Boys is set in sunny seaside Santa Carla, home to a beautiful boardwalk, all the cotton candy you can eat…and a secret underworld of vampires. After the sudden death of their father, brothers Michael (Posey) and Sam Emerson move to Santa Carla with their mother, Lucy (Sanchez), who hopes to start anew in the town where she grew up. But the brothers soon find themselves being drawn deeper and deeper into the seductive world of Santa Carla’s eternally beautiful and youthful undead…
Still mourning the death of her husband, Lucy is forced to move back home to Santa Carla — something she’s dreaded since causing a town scandal 27 years ago, when she ditched her boyfriend to run off with another man.
Lucy’s elder son Michael’s plan to attend Columbia Medical school is thrown off by the diagnosis that he shares the same genetic weakness that killed his father. The only thing that consoles him is the friendship he strikes up with Stella, a young woman who runs a concession stand on the Santa Carla boardwalk.
Stella, carefree and Californian, has an immediate spark with Michael, but she’s not single: Her boyfriend is the sexy, dangerous and immortal vampire David, who is sometimes scary and always intense. The leader of a vampire gang, he’s wildly in love with Stella, who’s the only one who can control him.
