From teenage private eyes to vampires.
“Veronica Mars” creator Rob Thomas is bringing the 1987 horror film “The Lost Boys” back in the form of a TV show on the CW.
The Joel Schumacher-directed movie, starring Jason Patric, Corey Haim, Kiefer Sutherland, Jami Gertz, Corey Feldman, Dianne Wiest, Edward Herrmann, Alexander Winter, Jamison Newlander and Barnard Hughes, set brothers Michael and Sam Emerson against a gang of vampires in Santa Carla, California.
Thomas’ reboot will be a seven-season, anthology show that focuses on what it means to be immortal, according to Deadline. Each season will cover a decade, beginning in San Francisco in 1967 during The Summer of Love.
Like Ryan Murphy’s “American Horror Story” and “American Crime Story,” characters, setting and plot will change with each season.
Thomas already has “iZombie” on the CW, joining his “Lost Boys” reboot. The network is also debuting a TV version of the 2000 movie “Frequency.”
