After an attempt to turn the basic concept of The Lost Boys into a TV series bit the dust, Warner Bros. has pivoted to a new, re-imagined movie to star A Quiet Place's Noah Jupe and It's Jaeden Martell.

Spearheading the new film are writer Randy McKinnon (who is already adapting the Static Shock comic for the studio) and director Jonathan Entwistle, who developed I Am Not Okay With This and The End Of the F*ing World for Netflix.

Directed by Joel Schumacher, the 1987 original starred Jason Patric, Kiefer Sutherland, Jami Gertz and the Coreys (Haim and Feldman), dealt with a pair of Arizona brothers who unexpectedly go up against a local gang of vampires.

Details of the new movie are being kept in a coffin for now, but it'll likely not be as ambitious as the series, which had Veronica Mars' Rob Thomas mapping out a potential seven season arc that would have seen the central vampire characters moving through a 70-year story as the humans age and change around them.
