“Teen Wolf” series lead Tyler Posey has signed on for the lead role of Michael in the upcoming “The Lost Boys” TV pilot at The CW.
Posey’s Michael, played by Jason Patrick in the original 1987 Joel Schumacher-directed film, is one of the two sons who move to the seaside town of Santa Carla with their mother (Kiele Sanchez).
Medalion Rahimi (“Still Star-Crossed”) plays Stella, a carefree Californian who has an immediate spark with Michael while her boyfriend David (Dakota Shapiro) is the bad-boy leader of a vampire gang – Jami Gertz and Kiefer Sutherland played those respective roles in the original.
“Twilight” helmer Catherine Hardwicke will direct the pilot which was first developed and rejected in the planning stages for the 2016-17 season before being re-developed for the upcoming Fall season. “Scandal” writer Heather Mitchell has penned while Rob Thomas, Dan Etheridge, Mike Karz and Bill Bindley will executive produce.
