The Lost Boys is one of the horror genre’s most beloved vampire movies. The iconic flick has spawned several sequels and comics, now the time has come for a television series. The CW previously produced a pilot for a The Lost Boys TV series which ultimately was passed by the network. But they were still persistent enough to develop a second The Lost Boys TV series pilot with a completely new cast and story, the details of which are posted down below.
Thanks to Deadline, we now know that Branden Cook, Lincoln Younes, and Ruby Cruz will star in the series. They also gave out a variety of new story and plot details. As they’ve reported:
- “Cook plays Garrett, the older of the two brothers who have moved with their mom to the North Carolina seaside community. He is a version of the Michael character in the movie, which was played by Jason Patric.
- Younes plays Benjamin, the charismatic leader of the gang of vampires in the town. It is a version of the David character played in the movie by Kiefer Sutherland.
- Cruz plays Elsie, a version of Jami Gertz’s character Star in the movie, who sparks with the new guy in town, Garrett.”
