REPILOT: THE LOST BOYS Pilot with Tyler Posey Will Be Reshot With Possible ReCastings

The Lost Boys.

The Lost Boys pilot didn’t work as well as The CW hoped.

It will be redeveloped and reshot with possible recasting.

The proposed series re-imagines the 1987 cult film The Lost Boys, which starred Jason Patric, Kiefer Sutherland, Jamie Gertz, Corey Feldman and Corey Haim, as an anthology.

Welcome to sunny seaside Santa Carla, home to a beautiful boardwalk, all the cotton candy you can eat and a secret underworld of vampires. After the sudden death of their father, brothers Michael (Tyler Posey) and Sam Emerson (Rio Mangini) move to Santa Carla with their mother, Lucy (Kiele Sanchez), who hopes to start anew in the town where she grew up. But the brothers find themselves drawn deeper and deeper into the seductive world of Santa Carla’s eternally beautiful and youthful undead.
