New Retooled Pilot To Be Filmed For “The Lost Boys” TV Series

The cult-classic still has a chance to get a TV series!

As reported by Deadline, The CW will be shooting a retooled pilot for The Lost Boys tv series.

Warner Bros.

Based on the vampire horror franchise started by the 1987 cult classic film, the last pilot didn’t make it to a full project. The next proposed pilot was ordered by the network, and will be retooled as the previous pilot’s script was considered “far outside the box.”

“The network didn’t want to go that far outside the box. So fortunately, the writer who is working on it right now, Heather Mitchell, loves the original movie and is eager to make the series look a little bit more like the original Lost Boys. It’s two human brothers showing up in this California beach town with the amusement park and a vampire infestation. It’s going to have a lot in common with the movie.”

It seems that the new series may end up being a bit more of a retelling of the classic movie, though writer Heather Mitchell is currently still working on the script so it will be left to see.

Since the original film release, there has been two film sequels and two comic book series. The CW is smart to stick to releasing this series, as it has a large and loyal fanbase.
