As we previously reported, The Lost Boys is being developed for the small screen. However, over the weekend, news broke that the redux (as well as the planned reboot of Charmed) have been bumped to the next development cycle at the network.
The property is being developed for TV by Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas. Thomas, who also created iZombie for the network previously revealed that he envisions the series as a seven-season anthology (each season set in a different decade). The only element that will carry through from season to season will be the immortal ‘Lost Boys’. The first season will be set in San Francisco, 1967. Thomas is assuming scripting duties on the pilot and possibly additional episodes, as well.
The Lost Boys feature film sees brothers Michael and Sam relocating to Santa Carla, California. Upon their arrival, the pair discovers that the town is swarming with bloodthirsty vampires.
Joel Schumacher’s The Lost Boys stars Jason Patric, Corey Haim, Kiefer Sutherland, Jami Gertz, and Corey Feldman. No word at this juncture on who will be starring in the television series. Stay tuned to the site in the coming months for more on this developing project as it breaks!
