The Lost Boys - remake (D: Entwistle) -- S: Noah Jupe, Jaeden Martell

Warner Bros. has found The Lost Boys once again.

The studio is gearing up for brand new, reimagined take on the 1980s teen vampire classic.

Noah Jupe, one of the stars of A Quiet Place movies, and Jaeden Martell, who was one of the young stars of the It horror movies, will topline the feature project.

Rising scribe Randy McKinnon, who is already working on Warner and DCís Static Shock project, will write the new Lost Boys with Jonathan Entwistle on board to direct.

Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Fred Berger will produce via their Automatik banner.

The original Lost Boys was a horror-comedy that told of two brothers who, along with their newly divorced mother to a California beach town that, the pair soon discovers, is being terrorized by a stylish vampire biker gang. Also taking bites from scenes were a pair of comic book-loving brothers who thought themselves as vampire hunters.


The movie, released in 1987, was directed by Joel Schumacher and featured an ensemble straight out of Bop magazine: Jason Patric, Kiefer Sutherland, Jami Gertz, Alex Winter, plus Corey Feldman and Corey Haim. Bringing up the age bracket were adults Dianne Wiest, Bernard Hughes, and Edward Herrmann.

The movie is fondly remembered for its young and sexy cast as well as a soundtrack that featured acts such as INXS, Echo and the Bunnymen, Roger Daltrey and Lou Gramm. Warners reopened the casket in the 2000s with a pair of direct-to-DVD movies, Lost Boys: The Tribe and Lost Boys: The Thirst.

Details of the new take are being kept in the trunk of a í57 Ford Fairlane but it is described as being set in modern day.

Zac Frognowski and Josh Glick will executive produce the new feature.

Automatik, which was behind the acclaimed indie, Honey Boy, which starred Jupe, and produced Distant, an upcoming sci-fi thriller from Amblin and Universal that stars Anthony Ramos.

Jupe is coming off of A Quiet Place Part II, which has grossed almost $300 million worldwide in the spring. He also appeared in this summerís Steven Soderberghís all-star HBO Max thriller, No Sudden Move, with Don Cheadle, Benicio del Toro, David Harbour.

Martell, who appeared in the massive It two-fer, co-starred with Chris Evans in Apple mini-series Defending Jacob and appeared in Knives Out. He next stars in musical drama Metal Lords for Netflix.

McKinnon was a staff writer on Netflixís horror series Chambers that starred Uma Thurman and is adapting Kwame Onwuachiís memoir, Notes from a Young Black Chef, for A24 with LaKeith Stanfield attached to star.

Entwistle developed End of the F***ing World, acting as the seriesí main director as well as executive producer, and he co-created, wrote and directed the recent series Iím Not Okay With This.

Jupe is repped by CAA, Grandview, The Artist Partnership, Hansen Jacabson while Martell is repped by CAA, Emily Cho Talent Management, Jackoway Austen. McKinnon and Entwistle are repped by CAA, Grandview and Jackoway Austen.

The DTV sequels were actually okay as far as DTV films are concerned. I forgot that they tried to spin the film off into a tv series. At the end of the day this is one of those films that as I mentioned in the Flight Of the Navigator remake thread, is not a sacred cow so if someone wants to remake the film I say go for it. After all, it is not my money they stand to lose if this tanks.

I am out at Noah Jupe. I could not stand him in either A Quiet Place movies. I was rooting for the monsters.

One thing I could never stomach about Hollywood is all the damn remakes.

Re: The Lost Boys - remake (D: Entwistle) -- S: Noah Jupe, Jaeden Martell

Hazel, great question. If I were casting I would go for someone relatively new to the scene in Hollywood, a couple of dudes who look like they are in their late teens but are actually in their mid-late 20s, and not complete unknowns. Actors who have already been in some well received films, either critically or well received by the audience or of course both (but the films might not have been seen by a ton of folks). I had to do a double-take that the hot girl in the The Lost Boys was Jami Gertz, as she has always been a good looking actress but wow..she really was something in The Lost Boys. That being said, she was certainly not a super well known hot starlet when she did The Lost Boys so I think the casting director could do the same. There are a ton of cute, great looking young ladies in Hollywood who can act, but perhaps do the same thing I recommended when casting the two male leads, find someone who can act, and looks adorable, but has not been in a ton of films/shows as she is an up and coming actress.

I will say that the time to remake a vampire film like The Lost Boys might have come and gone, as it would have been great counter-programming to all the Twilight films which were attracting the eyeballs of so many female movie-goers who were into vampires. A remake of a fan favorite vampire film that tries to appeal to both female and male movie-goers (if the female lead in The Lost Boys remake is a bit empowered and not simply some dude's hot girlfriend that would work in todays world where folks enjoy seeing a strong female character in a film who does not need to always turn to a man to be saved) could still work.

Anyway, as usual, I suspect I put more thought into this than the folks who will actually be involved in the film, if it ever gets off the ground.

My main hope is this gets locked in limbo and is not made with Noah. He was awful in the Quiet Place Place movies and I too was rooting for the monsters not him.

I canít believe itís not The Lost Girls. With an all non-white cast. And Iím sure theyíll shoehorn in the living Corey as the old wise guru who is the only other one that believes in vampires in Santa Carla. This will suck (pun intended).

Might confuse some people with Alan Moore's Lost Girls...which would probably never get made.

Lol. I never read the graphic novel but am well aware that it is an interesting piece of illustrated literature, the film would basically be at least a soft porn film if were made. I understand that those bits do not take up the entire graphic novel, but if you remove them from an adapted version that ends up on film/tv, well...there goes a big reason why people would tune in to see such a film/show.

I pretty much agree with this. I rewatched The Lost Boys a year or two ago for the horror challenge. I was shocked at just how dated it was. Not good. A remake might not be such a bad thing.

But it won't be a remake ... it will be a spiritually rebooted reimagining equally divided into prequel and sequel visitations of the original groundbreaking work. Oh, and it is the first part of a planned trilogy to launch the new Lost-verse.

I watched it not too long ago as well. Itís certainly 80s cheese but I thought it holds up quite well. Itís definitely dated but being dated almost works in its favor.

Iím not opposed to a remake. The I watched the first a lot when I was a kid in the late 80 and early 90s but I never held it as an untouchable property. I say remake it. If it sucks (no pun intended), itíll disappear just as fast as it came.

I also never bothered to see the sequel they made a few years ago.
