the lost boys tv series reboot

The CW has driven a stake through the heart of their Lost Boys TV show, and will now attempt to revive it with fresh blood. The network originally passed on the TV adaptation of the popular ’80s vampire flick, and now plan to retool the show completely. The retooling is so extreme that they’ve gotten rid of the entire cast – save for two actors.

(Welcome to DTV Descent, a series where we explore the weird and wild world of direct-to-video sequels to theatrically released movies. In this edition we bite down hard on two sequels to one of the most popular vampire movies of the ’80s.)

Not every movie that deserves a sequel actually gets one, and those that actually get a follow-up don’t always deserve it. Hollywood’s a mysterious place, a place where box-office dictates content more often than talent and creativity, and one of the unfortunate results of that formula is that sometimes a sequel can be greenlit strictly in the hopes of a quick cash-grab. In the most egregious of those cases, the follow-up doesn’t even make it to theaters and is instead aimed squarely at the direct-to-video (DTV) market. The original filmmakers are rarely involved, the level of onscreen talent is typically several rungs down the ladder of fame, and the films themselves are usually forgotten immediately…if they’re even noticed at all.

Well, that ends now.

It’s time to take a bite out of the two DTV sequels to 1987’s The Lost Boys.

Ready Player One posters

The end of this month will see the release of the anticipated adaptation of Ready Player One. The novel from Ernest Cline is coming to the big screen courtesy of director Steven Spielberg, who seems like the only director who could pull off a pop culture mash-up of this scale – especially with all of its key references to some of the most iconic blockbusters ever made.

Now a new set of Ready Player One posters ups the ante when it comes to mashing up nostalgic movies from decades past. Each of the posters takes the film’s digital characters and places them on the poster of a beloved movie from the past. Back to the Future, The Breakfast Club, Beetlejuice, Blade Runner, The Goonies, Risky Business, and more posters were fully recreated with Ready Player One‘s game avatar characters from The OASIS.

‘The Lost Boys’ Almost Had an End Credits Scene

the lost boys end credits

Before superhero movies made the after credits scene cool, The Lost Boys nearly did it first.

The original script for The Lost Boys almost had a different ending — one that was eventually moved to a tag that would roll after the credits. But that Lost Boys end credits scene was eventually cut and the ending was lost to the ether. Until now.

The Lost Boys

It’s a little surprising we haven’t heard about a remake of The Lost Boys yet. We’ve seen two direct-to-DVD sequels to the film (both starring Corey Feldman), but Joel Schumacher‘s vampire film is certainly well known enough to make someone see dollar signs in a potential update. Before that inevitable day comes, Vertigo Comics is bringing us a sequel to The Lost Boys that follows the film’s original surviving characters.
