It looks like the iconic Lost Boys film is heading to the CW network Per THR, the new take on the 1987 vampire movie reimagines the film over seven seasons (and 70 years) with each frame covering a decade. In success, the first run will be set in San Francisco during 1967’s so-called Summer of Love. Each season will see the humans, setting, antagonist and story all change. Only the vampires the “Lost Boys” — will remain the same.
Thomas will remain on board to pen the script and exec produce via his Spondoolie Productions banner alongside frequent collaborators Danielle Stokdyk and Dan Etheridge. Gulfstream’s Juliana Janes, Mike Karz and Bill Bindley also will exec produce after the production company came up with the idea to remake the feature film that starred Kiefer Sutherland, Jason Patric, Jami Gertz, Corey Haim and Corey Feldman.
Thomas will continue to hone Lost Boys with production on season three of iZombie having already wrapped.
