The CW Network is taking another stab at a pilot for its planned series based on Joel Schumacher’s vampire flick The Lost Boys, and the project has found it leads.
Branden Cook will play Garrett, the older of two brothers who move with their mother to the seaside town in North Carolina where she grew up. Of course, that town is full of kids who sleep all day, party all night, and never grow old, but at a cost: they’re all blood-sucking vampires. Cook’s character will be a version of Michael, the protagonist played by Jason Patrick in the 1987 original.
Lincoln Younes will play Benjamin, a version of the character Kiefer Sutherland played in the movie. Benjamin is the charismatic leader of the vampire gang. Ruby Cruz will play Elsie, a version of Jami Gertz’s character Star.
Marcos Siega is directing the series, which was written by Heather Mitchell and Rob Thomas. More news as we hear it.
