They’re remaking THE LOST BOYS. Whee.

Too soon, my friends, too soon. As in, everybody still remembers how good THE LOST BOYS was. A remake is just going to be glaringly awkward:

Warner Bros. is moving forward with a feature film reboot of the classic 1987 vampire film The Lost Boys. The reimagining will star Noah Jupe (A Quiet Place) and Jaeden Martell (It). That’s a talented young cast, but there’s no information on who they’ll be playing in the film.

Look, there’s a reason why they never even made a sequel to the original…

INTERRUPTION, OFFSTAGE: Umm, wasn’t there some stuff a few years back?

…I said, THEY NEVER EVEN MADE A SEQUEL TO THE ORIGINAL. YOU ARE MISTAKEN, OFFSTAGE VOICE. Anyway, this all seems rather silly. Why not just remaster and rerelease the first movie? That at least would be a good thing.

  1. Hollywood is devoid of ideas.
    Every now and then, they humble themselves and get some new material.. or an original new spin on an old one.
    (They may come for Shamus Vargas one fine Cin day…)
    Mostly, they insist they’re the smartest ones… and try and recapture the last batch of outsider magic.

    1. I’m sorry, Moe. I must be talking in my sleep again. i don’t even remember shouting at you about the Tribe, the Thirst OR the Frog Brothers.

      1. Nowadays, people would take the Frog Brothers as confirmation that the director and producers were pedophiles.

        Available evidence strongly suggests that they’d be right.

        The best thing about the movie, was the soundtrack. And you know the zeks changed that before greenlight.
