CAROLINA BEACH - Get ready for vampires, bon-fires, carnival rides and other scenes coming to Carolina Beach in March as part of a plan to film a new Warner Bro's series for the CW channel called "The Lost Boys".

Filming will take place at the Boardwalk and the Carolina Beach Fishing Pier March 19 - 20 and 26 - 27.

The series is based on the 1987 film of the same name originally directed by Joel Schumacher and written by Jeffrey Boam.

In 2019, a pilot was ordered by Warner Bro's, but failed to meet their expectations. However, Warner Bro's ordered another round of pilots with a new cast.

On February 15th, the Boardwalk restaurant "Hurricane Alley's" posted on Facebook, "It’s confirmed!!!! The location scouts for the CW came to our Boardwalk Business meeting and told us they will be shooting the pilot for the TV show The Lost Boys mid March. They will be filming at several businesses on the boardwalk, bringing in some carnival rides for the filming and they will be needing about 200 extras. They will also be filming at the High Tide at the North End.

According to the internet: The Lost Boys” is set in sunny seaside Santa Carla, home to a beautiful boardwalk, all the cotton candy you can eat…and a secret underworld of vampires. Another reason to look forward to spring!!!

On February 18th, Town Clerk Kim Ward explained to Town Council in a  email, "I just saw this article on WECT’s website. The production officials had their first meeting with staff this morning.  They have not received final approval from the Town.  The dates that they are proposing are on or around 3/19, 3/20, 3/25 and 3/26.  The Managers have given them a checklist of items that must be complete prior to receiving a permit.  If all goes well they will look at filming over the summer as well.  This will be a more elaborate plan that the event’s committee will give a recommendation for approval, approval with conditions, or denial.  The final decision will be brought back to Town Council ahead of the summer season."

The production will require around 200 extras for the production so keep an eye out for casting calls.

The new plot is not a drastic departure from the 1980's film. The new guys and their mom move to a seaside town and realize local kids spend their days sleeping and spend their nights partying and seemingly never growing old.

Brooke Barnhill, Locations Manager, 'The Lost Boys', Warner Brothers Television, explained on February 28th, "We can confirm that Warner Bros. Television will be shooting scenes from The Lost Boys television pilot for The CW in Carolina Beach during March 2020. The production is scheduled to film on the Carolina Beach boardwalk March 19-20 and 26-27 (weather permitting), with prep scheduled to begin March 16. The production is also scheduled to film beach scenes on the north end of Carolina Beach and at the High Tide Lounge March 23-25. Because of the nocturnal nature of this project, the majority of filming will take place overnight, with prep to take place during the day. Based on the 1987 cult classic feature film that revolutionized how we think about vampires, The Lost Boys follows a mother and her Gen Z sons who move to the seaside town where she grew up. They soon discover there is a sinister reason the local cool kids sleep all day, party all night, never grow up, and never grow old. Family bonds are tested as the brothers find themselves on opposite sides of a mythological struggle."
