According to The Hollywood Reporter, CW won a bidding war to bring the 1987 vampire flick to the small screen, with Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas reportedly on board to guide the reboot. Thomas will write and serve as executive producer on the series, which takes an interesting, almost-anthology-like approach to the source material.
The CW has revealed plans to develop a series based the 1980's horror cult classic, The Lost Boys from Veronica Mars and IZombie creator Rob Thomas. The original 1987 film, directed by Joel Schumacher, starred Jason Patric, Kiefer Sutherland, Jami Gertz, Corey Haim and Corey Feldman.
The original Lost Boys was about two Arizona brothers, played by Jason Patric and Corey Haim, who move to a small California town where they encounter a gang of blood-thirsty vampires who terrorize the town by night.
The Lost Boys series will span seven seasons chronicling a decade each season. The first season will be set in 1960's San Francisco with each subsequent season featuring new heroes and new setting. The only characters that will remain the same are the vampires.

Yet another remake is making its way to television.
The CW has put a re-imagining of the 1987 film “The Lost Boys” into development, Variety has confirmed.
The potential series hails from “Veronica Mars” and “iZombie” creator Rob Thomas, furthering his relationship with the CW, as his DC Comics zombie rom-com is heading into its third season at the network.
Based on the movie, CW’s “Lost Boys” will be an anthology of sorts, looking at vampires through a new lens, asking the question: what does it really mean to be immortal? The series will tell a story spanning 70 years, each decade a new season — meaning the plan is for the show to go on for seven years. Each season, the humans, the setting, the antagonist and the story all change — only the vampires, our Lost Boys, remain the same. The first season will be set in San Francisco during 1967 — the Summer of Love.

The CW is preparing for life after The Vampire Diaries: The network is developing a series adaptation of the vamp-themed 1987 horror-comedy The Lost Boys, shepherded by Veronica Mars and iZombie creator Rob Thomas.
According to Deadline, the project explores what it really means to be immortal, with each potential season chronicling a decade of the 70-year-old saga. The human characters, the setting and the main antagonist will change with each season, per Deadline. Only the undead Lost Boys will remain the same.
1987’s The Lost Boy is a bona-fide cult classic, and one of the go to films when diving deep into the world of vampires on film. Fans have been thirsting for a sequel ever since the movie’s release, and before you ask the twenty years later direct to DVD sequels The Tribe and The Thirst don’t count. But it looks like we’re finally getting what we wished for with DC Comics imprint Vertigo (the mature readers arm of the company that brought us previous big screen adaption The Losers and current smash hit t.v. show Preacher) announcing a de facto The lost Boys 2 in the form of a comic book miniseries that picks up not long after the events of the original. Written by Tim Seeley, creator of the similarly horror tinged comic Hack/Slash, the story will see Jason Patric, Corey Haim, Corey Feldman, Jami Gertz »

Truth, justice and the American way prevail! It seems we're getting a true Lost Boys 2, only in the form of a comic. 30 years removed from the release of the original cult classic, this is perhaps the only way to go, especially since one of the main stars has long since drifted into the chilly night air of Santa Carla. The Lost Boys sequel comic will pick up where we last left Sam, Mike, his mother and their vampire fighting Grandpa.
There's no denying that The Lost Boys is an 80s cult classic that has a legion of fans. But the franchise hasn't exactly faired well over the past few decades. The movie was supposed to get a true sequel heading into the 90s, which never happened. It would have revolved around an all-girl vampire coven, and may have just been too far ahead of its time. It wasn't until 2008 that »
“The Lost Boys” never grow old and never die, which means it’s never too late for a sequel to the cult classic film. Variety can exclusively reveal that the beloved ’80s horror-comedy will receive a sequel comic book in the form of a new miniseries from Vertigo, which will hit shelves on October 12.
Featuring the surviving characters from the film, “The Lost Boys” comic is being crafted by horror veterans, writer Tim Seeley (an alum of DC’s “Grayson” and “Nightwing,” and creator of “Hack/Slash”) and artists Scott Godlewski (“The Dark & Bloody,” “Copperhead”) and Patricia Mulvihill (“The Dark & Bloody,” “Hellblazer”), with covers by Tony Harris. The team promises to deliver a gruesome and stylish return to the bloody boardwalks and big hair of 1987.
In the new miniseries, Santa Carla, California, is on edge. The eccentric coastal town and haven for the undead was finally returning to “normal” after »

It was also the "Apocalypse Now" of weather-themed disaster movies. The film's production was marked by severe injuries to the stars and crew, a runaway budget, and the cinematographers openly rebelling against the director. Here are the real-life twists you didn't hear about from the tornado drama's tempestuous shoot.
1. The "Twister" screenplay is credited to "Jurassic Park" novelist Michael Crichton and his wife, Anne-Marie Martin, but it was revised by such celebrated script doctors as Joss Whedon (who dropped out of the project because he contracted bronchitis), Steven Zaillian (who dropped out because he was leaving for his honeymoon), and Jeff Nathanson, who was on the set and kept rewriting the script until the end of the shoot.
