Back in January it became known that The CW is developing a series for The Last Boys based on the 1987 vampire movie, and now the cast is revealed for Michael, Lucy, Stella and David.
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. Additional casting will be made known soon.
In the 1987 movie, Jason Patric played Michael, Dianne Wiest was Lucy, Jami Gertz was Star, and Kiefer Sutherland played 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.
