Classic 1980s vampire flick The Lost Boys is coming to a small screen near you.

According to Deadline, The CW has landed a series adaption of the flick from Veronica Mars and iZombie creator Rob Thomas behind the project.

Plans are for a seven season run with the story spanning 70 years, with each season chronicling a decade. Season 1 will be set in San Francisco during the Summer of Love, 1967. Each season, the humans, the setting, the antagonist and the story all change — only the Lost Boys remain the same.

The original movie was about two Arizona brothers, played by Jason Patric and Corey Haim, who move to a California town where they take on a gang of vampires.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
