Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John In Biopic 'Rocketman'

The Lost Boys TV Show Heading To The CW

Despite rumors to the contrary, vampires don't suck (sorry), especially if you’re Warner Bros Television. While it’s been announced that The Vampire Diaries is going into it final season, there are plans afoot to keep the undead alive at the studio with a TV series reboot and complete reimagining of 1987’s The Lost Boys.

That film, directed by Joel Schumacher and starring Jason Patric, Kiefer Sutherland, Jami Gertz and the Coreys (Haim and Feldman), dealt with a pair of Arizona brothers who unexpectedly go up against a local gang of vampires. The intent of the series, being written and produced by iZombie's Rob Thomas, is to thoroughly examine the notion of immortality. Whereas previous entries in this horror subgenre (Angel, Forever Knight, Being Human, etc.) have done so via flashbacks, The Lost Boys promises to take a different approach. Describes Deadline, “This version is being envisioned as a seven-season arc. It will tell a story spanning 70 years, each season chronicling a decade. Season one 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 vampires, our Lost Boys, like the Peter Pan characters who never grow up, remain the same.”

If that indeed is the approach being taken, it means that should the show go seven seasons, it will bring the story into the year 2037, which will result in a fairly unique setting for a vampire story.

He talked up his hope that Elton John biopic Rocketman would finally come together, and now Paramount is closing a deal to finance and distribute the film worldwide.

The film, which has been through at least one previous incarnation (Michael Gracey directing Tom Hardy in the lead) is reuniting the Eddie The Eagle team of Egerton, director Dexter Fletcher and producer Matthew Vaughn, who has been trying to get the movie made for a while, with Elton's blessing and the support of his company, Rocket Pictures.

Featuring a script by Lee Hall, Rocketman will follow the career of the artist formerly known as Reginald Dwight, from a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music to a global superstar, through his influential and enduring musical partnership w…
