First announced as a possibility nearly three years ago, The CW has announced it is finally moving forward on an ambitious series re-imagining of Joel Schumacher’s cult 1987 horror comedy “The Lost Boys” to be produced by Gulfstream TV and Warner Bros. Television.
A pilot has been ordered based on a new take by Heather Mitchell (“Scandal”), but specifics are unknown. Previously “Veronica Mars” and “iZombie” creator Rob Thomas pitched a version that, like “The Crown,” would cover a decade of events per season.
The CW has also ordered pilots for a new take on “Nancy Drew” by the creators of “Gossip Girl” along with spin-offs of “Riverdale” (titled “Katy Keene”) and “Jane the Virgin” (titled “Jane the Novela”). All join the previously ordered “Batwoman” pilot.
