Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
Back in 1987 we were introduced to fun and adventuresome film THE LOST BOYS. It is about two Arizona brothers who move to California and end doing battle with a gang of young vampires. Back in 2008 we saw a sequel to the movie titled LOST BOYS: THE TRIBE, followed by 2010's LOST BOYS: THE THIRST.
During The CW panel at the San Diego Comic-Con last month, the announcement was made that the network had decided to bring THE VAMPIRE DIARIES to an end. Season 8 will mark the final one. As they look ahead to the future, a serious gap needs to be filled in their programming schedule and what could fill this gap? THE LOST BOYS of course.
That's right, The CW has now picked up a series adaptation of THE LOST BOYS. Rob Thomas, the creator of Veronica Mars and iZombie has developed this new series based on the original film with the idea that the show "will explore what it really means to be immortal", which is planned to take place over the course of several years.
"Envisioned for a seven-season, anthology-style run, the series will tell a story spanning 70 years, each season chronicling a decade. Season 1 will be set in San Francisco during the Summer of Love, 1967. Each season, the humans, the setting, the antagonist and the story all change — only the vampires, our Lost Boys, who like the Peter Pan characters never grow up, remain the same."
It will be interesting to see what happens with the seven season plan that has been laid out. This is a very bold move on The CW's part considering that the project is in the early stages of development.
THE LOST BOYS TV series will be a collaboration of Warner Bros. Television, Gulfstream TV, and Spondoolie Productions. The series will be executive produced by Thomas, Danielle Stokdyk, Dan Etheridge, Mike Karz, and Bill Bindley.
We will continue to bring you more on this story as it unfolds.
