New ‘Lost Boys’ movie in the works with Noah Jupe, Jaeden Martell starring (exclusive) – The Hollywood Reporter
Warner Bros. found The lost boys once again.
The studio is gearing up for an all-new reimagined take on the 1980s teen vampire classic.
Noah Skirt (A quiet place) and Jaeden Martell (This) will be at the top of the feature project.
Up-and-coming scribe Randy McKinnon, who is already working on Warner Bros. and DC’s Static shock project, will write the new one Lost boys, with Jonathan Entwistle on board to lead.
Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Fred Berger will produce via their Automatik banner, which was the origin of the famous indie honey boy (also featuring Jupe) and also has a sci-fi thriller Far, Amblin and Universal and with Anthony Ramos, in preparation.
The original Lost boys, released in 1987, tells the story of two brothers who move to a Californian beach town who, the couple soon find out, are terrorized by a gang of stylish vampire bikers. Two comic book-loving brothers who considered themselves vampire hunters also took bites in scenes.
The horror comedy was directed by Joel Schumacher and featured a set straight out of Bop magazine: Jason Patric, Kiefer Sutherland, Jami Gertz, Alex Winter, plus Corey Feldman and Corey Haim. The age group consisted of adults Dianne Wiest, Barnard Hughes and Edward Herrmann.
The film is fondly remembered for its young and sexy cast as well as a soundtrack featuring artists such as INXS, Echo and the Bunnymen, Roger Daltrey and Lou Gramm. Warners reopened the coffin in the 2000s with a pair of direct-to-DVD movies, Lost Boys: The Tribe and Lost boys: thirst.
Details of the new take are kept in the trunk of a Ford Fairlane 57, but it is described as taking place in modern times.
Zac Frognowski and Josh Glick will executive produce the new feature film.
Skirt comes out of A quiet place part II, which grossed nearly $ 300 million worldwide in the spring. He also appeared in this summer’s Steven Soderbergh HBO Max thriller, No sudden movement, with Don Cheadle, Benicio Del Toro and David Harbor.
Martell, who appeared in the massif This two-fer, co-starring with Chris Evans in the Apple miniseries Defend Jacob and appeared in Knives Out (also with Evans). He then stars in the musical drama Lords of Metal for Netflix.
McKinnon was a writer for the Netflix horror series Bedrooms, with Uma Thurman, and adapts the memoirs of Kwame Onwuachi, Notes from a young black chef, for A24 with LaKeith Stanfield attached to the star.
Entwistle developed End of the fucking world acting as the series’ senior director as well as executive producer, and he co-created, wrote and directed the recent series I don’t agree with that.
Jupe is replaced by CAA, Grandview, The Artist Partnership and Hansen Jacobson while Martell is replaced by CAA, Emily Cho Talent Management and Jackoway Austen. McKinnon and Entwistle are replaced by CAA, Grandview and Jackoway Austen.
