According to THR, Jaeden Martell and Noah Jupe will star in the upcoming reboot of the 1987 film The Lost Boys. Martell starred in the IT series reboot and was recently live-action Morty in the season finale of Rick and Morty. Jupe recently starred in A Quiet Place II and was in the first film; he also appeared in the HBO Max film No Sudden Move. These young gentlemen are reprising actors for Warner Bros and fit the bill for the film perfectly.
Randy McKinnon will write the film’s script, who is currently working on the Static Shock film for the company. McKinnon was also a scribe for the Netflix series Chambers. Johnathan Entwistle, who helped develop The End of the F*****g World for the streaming service, will serve as the film’s director. He also helmed Netflix’s I Am Not Ok WIth This.
Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Fred Berger will produce this reboot under their Automatik banner. The company brought you Honey Boy starring Shia LaBeouf. They also produced Distant, a Universal film starring Anthony Ramos. This will be one of the more popular titles under the banner.
The Lost Boys was rebooted twice in the early 2000s: Lost Boys: The Tribe and Lost Boys: Thirst. Both films were straight-to-DVD and didn’t do well. Warner Bros is looking to resurrect its favorite vampires and vampire hunters. They likely have the team to do it. It’s been 44 years since the original film was released, and we are finally getting a reboot.
