And yet, another classic horror movie from the 1980s that gets rebooted in a TV series. This time is the turn for juvenile vampires flick The Lost Boys (1987), which was a notable underground hit and still has a growing fanbase (despite its 2 forgettable movie sequels).
Rob Thomas, responsable of the tv series Veronica Mars and iZombie, has the role of writing and producing this new adaptation. The original film, starred by Jason Patric, Kiefer Sutherland, Jami Gertz, Corey Haim and Corey Feldman and directed by Joel Schumacher, told the story of a group of juvenile vampires who arrive in a new town. There, two brothers discover the identity of the newcomers and join forces with a freaky comics addict to face the mysterious enemy.
The approach of the TV series sounds so far pretty interesting. The main idea is an installment of seven different seasons, each season placed in a different decade. The action in the first season will happen in 1967 in San Francisco, and will be starred by a group of vampires that never get old. The intention is to place the second season in New York in the 1970s, the third season in Texas in the 1980s decade and the 4th season in Seattle deep into the grunge apogee of the 1990s.
In the words of Rob Thomas, vampires never grow up, but the humans around them do. A pretty interesting concept for an ambitious project that we all hope to come to fruition. So far, not many news come from The CW, the company behind this new TV product, but we will be expecting more news for what might become one of the most expected TV series in the already pretty populated panorama.
