'The Lost Boys' adaptation gets pilot order at CW

Los Angeles, Feb 1 (PTI) Series reboot of Joel Schumacher's 1987 film 'The Lost Boys' has been given a pilot order by The CW.

The series is a retooled version of the pilot the CW ordered last season, from Heather Mitchell and Rob Thomas, reported Entertainment Weekly.

In the new version, when a mother and her young sons move to the seaside town where she grew up, they discover there is a sinister reason the local cool kids sleep all day, party all night, never grow up and never get old. Family bonds are tested as the brothers find themselves on opposite sides of a mythological struggle.

Marcos Siega, who has previously helmed the pilots for the CW series 'The Vampire Diaries' and 'Batwoman', has come on board to direct the new 'Lost Boys' pilot.

None of the cast members from the first pilot are attached to the new version.

The CW has also given pilot order to drama 'Maverick'. The series is set in present day America that finds itself under authoritarian rule.

Merigan Mulhern is the writer and co-executive producer on the pilot. PTI SHD SHD
