Here we go again! The Lost Boys is getting a brand new “reimagining”. Warner Brothers is planning a remake of the original 1980s vampire classic.
The new movie already has a cast, in the form of Noah Jupe from A Quiet Place and Jaeden Martell from the recently It movies. There is no news on who they are playing yet.
A relatively new writer, Randy KcKinnon is penning the new script. He has worked with Warner Brothers and DC on Static Shock. Set to direct is Jonathan Entiwistle, best known for directing episodes of The End of the F***ing World.
The original version of The Lost Boys is now a classic. It tells the story of two brothers who move to a Californian beach town that is being terrorised by an 80s stylish biker gang, who happen to be vampires. With the help of two comic book-loving brothers, they take on the vampires. Seriously, if you haven’t seen it go and watch it right now!
The original was directed by Joel Schumacher and starred all your 80s favorites like Jason Patric, Kiefer Sutherland, Jami Gertz, Alex Winter, Corey Feldman and Corey Haim, Dianne Wiest, Bernad Huges and Edward Herrmann.
It has a killer soundtrack for the time that everyone in the known universe of a certain age owned. Just hearing the songs take me back.
Apparently there were two sequels that went straight to DVD – Lost Boys: The Tribe and Lost Boys: The Thirst. I haven’t seen them and I don’t really want to, I love the original too much.
Details about the remake are being kept under wraps at the moment. All that is known is that it will be set in the modern day.
