Warner is planning to reboot the 1980s cult hit The Lost Boys, with a modern-day take starring Noah Jupe and Jaeden Martell.

Jupe starred in the “A Quiet Place” films  and appeared in “The Undoing” and “Honey Boy,” while Martell was part of the “It” movies ensemble and starred in the “Defending Jacob” series as well as appearing in “Knives Out” and “Masters of Sex.”

Jonathan Entwistle will direct with Randy McKinnon, who is working on “Static Shock” for Warner and DC, writing the new version, the studio confirmed.

Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Fred Berger are producing through Automatik. Zac Frognowski and Josh Glick are executive producers.

Joel Schumacher directed the original “Lost Boys” in 1988, starring Corey Haim, Corey Feldman, Kiefer Sutherland, Jason Patric, Alex Winter, Dianne Wiest and Jami Gertz in the story of two boys who move to a California beach town with their mother and get involved with a gang of bikers who are vampires.

The popular soundtrack included bands such as Echo and the Bunnymen doing a cover version of the Doors’ “People Are Strange” and INXS’ “Good Times” with Jimmy Barnes, plus songs by Roger Daltrey and Foreigner’s Lou Gramm.

Entwistle, developed “The End of the F***ing World” and was the series’ main director and executive producer. He also directed the pilot for the upcoming “Willow” TV series at Disney Plus.

The pilot for a “Lost Boys” TV series at The CW had been in production when the pandemic shut down filming, but the network did not pick it up. Two straight-to-video sequels were also released.
