Stake Out "The Lost Boys"

The CW may still consider staking out "The Lost Boys" as a live-action TV series, after the network previously passed on a TV pilot directed by Catherine Hardwicke ("Twilight") that updated the comic book reading, vampire-killing 'Frog Brothers' into the woke 'Frog Sisters':

" the original movie 'The Lost Boys', still mourning the death of her husband, 'Lucy' is forced to move back home to 'Santa Carla', California — something she’s dreaded since causing a town scandal 27 years ago, when she ditched her boyfriend to run off with another man.

"Lucy's elder son 'Michael' planning to attend 'Columbia Medical' school is thrown off by the diagnosis that he shares the same genetic weakness that killed his father. The only thing that consoles him is the friendship he strikes up with 'Stella', a young woman who runs a concession stand on the Santa Carla boardwalk.

"Stella takes to Michael, but she's not single: Her boyfriend is the sexy, dangerous and immortal vampire 'David'. And now she'll have to choose between the living and the dead..."

Written by Janice Fischer, James Jeremias and Jeffrey Boam, the original "Lost Boys", inspired by author J. M. Barrie's stories about 'Peter Pan' and 'Neverland'...

... introduced the 'Frog' brothers, 'Edgar' and 'Alan'...

... as a pair of self-proclaimed vampire hunters.
