Lost Boys TV Show in Development

Warner Bros Television have announced that they are currently working on a TV series based on 1987’s The Lost BoysiZombie’s Rob Thomas is lined up to write and produce the show which will be a reimagining of Joel Schumacher’s cult hit which starred Jason Patric, Kiefer Sutherland and Corey’s Haim and Feldman. While details on the plot are scarce at the moment, Deadline reports that “This version is being envisioned as a seven-season arc. It will tell a story spanning 70 years, each season chronicling a decade. Season one 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, like the Peter Pan characters who never grow up, remain the same.’

If this turns out to be true it looks set to be a unique take on the vampire story concept, with perhaps an anthology style akin to shows like American Horror Story and True Detective. More news as always, as we get it.
