Forget about that proposed television series that’s been quote-end quote in-the-works for what seems like forever now. We have moved on, people! There is going to be a new THE LOST BOYS movie! It is set to star Noah Jupe from A QUIET PLACE and A QUIET PLACE PART II and Jaeden Martell from the two IT movies and KNIVES OUT. Jonathan Entwistle is set to direct and Randy McKinnon will be serving as screenwriter. And that’s about it as far as details go, other than the movie is supposed to be set in the present day.
So here’s what they *should* do if they want their movie to be a success. Forget about doing any remakes. Make this one a straight sequel to the original film. Forget about the however many sequels they did that were terrible and are best forgotten anyway. Make like the new HALLOWEEN series and pretend those sequels never happened. They took place in a parallel reality. And bring back as many of the original cast members as possible, even if just for cameos. Obviously Kiefer Sutherland couldn’t play David the vampire now, as he has aged; Kiefer, not the vampire. But that doesn’t mean Kiefer couldn’t be in the movie. Heck, it doesn’t even mean he couldn’t play a vampire.
As far as that goes, he could conceivably still play David, if the screenwriter can concoct a plausible explanation for it. Ooh, David as the new master vampire, like the role Edward Herrmann played in the original film. Now that thar’ is a dog that’d tree some raccoons!
