When he meets a similarly displaced Indian filmmaker, they journey east, seeking what they believe to be their true place in the world.
“It’s the same kind of quirky story as ‘Little Miss Sunshine,’ and we think mature audience will respond — particularly with an opening on the Oscar weekend,” said Mark Canton, who founded Cinelou in 2014 with Courtney Solomon.
“Burn Your Maps” is the fifth title from Cinelou, founded as a prestige label specializing in character-driven adult-targeted movies in the $10 million range. Since then, it’s released Jennifer Aniston’s dark comedy “Cake” and »

CW, facing life without their hit series The Vampire Diaries once that series concludes after its eighth season, has secured another blood-sucking property to glamour viewers: A television reboot of the cult Eighties film Lost Boys.
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, known for its extensive superhero slate, is branching farther out into bloodsucker territory as Deadline reports a small screen reboot of The Lost Boys is on the way. Before you dab your brow in anticipation of a “why are they rebooting my favorite movie Ever?!” rant, hold fire. Plans for the series aren’t as dour as they might seem.
First of all, the show is being orchestrated by Rob Thomas, the man behind the superb Veronica Mars. That series, and its spinoff movie, demonstrated a rather special grasp of the material, making its lead likeable and fun without resorting to tired teen stereotypes. For The Lost Boys, Thomas plots to do something that should please fans of the 1987 film. He’s fashioning a fresh spin on the story. Yes folks: this is not a direct remake.

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.

As the Abbies descend upon the town, Theo is forced to make a decision that could seal humanity’s fate in the all-new “Bedtime Story” season finale episode of Wayward Pines airing Wednesday, July 27 (9:00-10:00 Pm Et/Pt) on Fox. (Pin-210) (TV-14 D, S, V)

This is a continuation of last week’s powder keg episode where Abbies had congregated outside the fence by the thousand. Inside remained a hot bed of in-fighting, finger pointing and slanderous exchanges. What episode eight gives us is more of the same except this time the female has escaped completely. Megan Fisher has bled out and sits prone undiscovered until ten minutes in, at which point there develops a number of dividing factions all out for their own ends.
Tim Griffin’s Adam Hassler who continues the unkempt, dishevelled, hobo chic is almost beside himself at the prophecy unfolding as panic runs rampant. Hidden entrances and exits from the town are discovered which smacks of convenience rather than poor planning. While man points are won and lost on both sides between Xander and Yedlin, in an episode which appears »

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 »
