The Lost Boys, a 1987 cult classic about vampires is now getting rebooted, and seems to have found its leads. The original starred the likes of Kiefer Sutherland and Corey Feldman.

As per The Hollywood Reporter, the new Lost Boys is going to star Jaeden Martell, best known for the role of Bill Denbrough in It, and Noah Jupe, who appeared in A Quiet Place and Wonder.

Martell is 18 while Jupe is 16. In comparison, the original cast were in their 20s when the movie came out. The 1987 movie was originally intended to star younger actors, which is the route the reboot seems to be taking. (

The new movie is also going to be directed by John Entwistle, who recently directed The End of the F**king World. This suggests that the movie is going to shed the original’s edgy sensibilities in lieu of a more self-aware tone.
