Warner Bros. is rebooting The Lost Boys movie which will be a reimagining for the modern audience set in the modern day, with The CW series no longer moving forward.
No specific casting details are known but it’s reported the flick will star The Quiet Place‘s Noah Jupe, and IT‘s Jaeden Martell.
Jonathan Entwistle, known for directing episodes of The End of the F***ing World and an upcoming Power Rangers movie, is the director.
‘Who likes Vampires??” Entwistle teased on Instagram story.
The Lost Boys reboot is being written by Randy McKinnon who is writing Static Shock for WB.
“If you think you know what to expect with this one, you’re the perfect victim. Stay tuned. This will be a fun one!” posted McKinnon on Instagram.
Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (Sinister, Insidious) and Fred Berger (La La Land) will produce through their Automatik Entertainment production company.
Zac Frognowski and Josh Glick are on board as executive producers.
The Lost Boys was at one time going to be a (woke) rebooted series on The CW, but it is reported that is no longer moving forward, as Deadline says WBTV instead opted to go with Kung-Fu.
