The horror film “The Lost Boys” is being remade. The leading roles are played by the two young Hollywood newcomers Noah Jupe and Jaeden Martell.

At the end of the 80s, the horror film “The Lost Boys” (1987) by director Joel Schumacher (1939-2020) developed cult status. As “The Hollywood Reporter” now reports, the strip will be reprinted soon. The main actors have already been found with the two shooting stars Noah Jupe (16) and Jaeden Martell (18).

According to the report, the responsible film studio Warner Bros. engaged Jonathan Entwislte (37) as the director, the script was written by Randy McKinnon. The production job falls to the duo Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (44) and Fred Berger (40).

Due to their age, 16-year-old Noah Jupe and his 18-year-old colleague Jaeden Martell are probably following in the footsteps of former teen stars Corey Feldman (50) and Corey Haim (1971-2010) with their cast. In the original film “The Lost Boys” 34 years ago you played two of the three young vampire hunters who suspect a motorcycle gang around David (Kiefer Sutherland, 54) and Michael (Jason Patric, 55) of vampirism. A role confirmation is still pending.

Noah Jupe last shone in “A Quiet Place 2”, Jaeden Martell played twice alongside Chris Evans

Jupe last played in the two hit movies “A Quiet Place” (2018) and “A Quiet Place 2” (2020). Martell shone in the “It” films (2017 and 2019) and played twice alongside Hollywood superstar Chris Evans (40, “Avengers”) – in the crime comedy “Knives Out” (2019) and the Mystery series “Secret” (2020).

More details about the remake of “The Lost Boys” are currently under lock and key. However, one thing is already known: the action should probably not take place in the past, but in the present.
