CW's Lost Boys turns Frog Brothers into Frog Sisters

Last month we passed along the news that The CW has ordered a pilot episode of THE LOST BOYS based on Heather Mitchell's script. She will be executive producing the show alongside Rob Thomas, Dan Etheridge, Mike Karz, and Bill Bindley, with Rebecca Franko producing. And today we have word via Collider podcast The Witching Hour that this new take on the classic Joel Schumacher film will be doing a bit of gender swapping.

Yes, it looks like CW's THE LOST BOYS will be taking the famous Frog Brothers (played by Corey Feldman and Jamison Newlander in the films) and switching them up to The Frog Sisters. Makes sense to me in the way that one of the things this new series will want to avoid at all costs is giving us a lame version of The Frog Brothers. That would be instant death for the series. Making it The Frog Sisters lets it automatically become its own thing.

I'm for it. 

Here's the show's synopsis, not to be confused with, you know, the movie's synopsis:

Welcome to sunny seaside Santa Carla, home to a beautiful boardwalk, all the cotton candy you can eat… and a secret underworld of vampires. After the sudden death of their father, two brothers move to Santa Carla with their mother, who hopes to start anew in the town where she grew up. But the brothers find themselves drawn deeper and deeper into the seductive world of Santa Carla’s eternally beautiful and youthful undead.

The companies behind the pilot are Spoondoolie Productions and Gulfstream Television, in association with Warner Bros. Television. You can check out the clip from The Witching Hour regarding this Frog Brothers, Frog Sisters twist on Joel Schumacher's THE LOST BOYS right HERE.
