"Sleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old. Never die. It's fun to be a vampire." The CW is looking to tap into the fun and frightening concoction of Joel Schumacher's The Lost Boys, as they are developing a TV series based on the beloved film.

Deadline broke the news about The Lost Boys TV series, which is being developed and written by Rob Thomas (iZombie, Veronica Mars) at The CW in conjunction with Gulfstream TV and Warner Bros Television.

According to Deadline, the series is being planned by Thomas as a massive seven-season story that would follow an immortal group of vampires (the Lost Boys) as they live through the triumphs and tribulations of each decade. Each season would be set in a new decade, with the debut season expected to take place in San Francisco circa 1967.

It's unknown at this time whether or not the cast members from the original film will be involved in the TV series, but we'll keep Daily Dead readers updated on further details.

The 1987 movie starred Jason Patric, Dianne Wiest, Kiefer Sutherland, Jami Gertz, Corey Feldman, Jamison Newlander, Billy Wirth, Alex Winter, and Chance Michael Corbitt, as well as the late Corey Haim, Edward Herrmann, Brooke McCarter, and Barnard Hughes.

Years after the original movie came out, two sequels were released on home media, Lost Boys: The Tribe (2008) and Lost Boys: The Thirst (2010). Earlier this summer, Vertigo announced a new Lost Boys comic book miniseries that will debut this October and serve as a direct sequel to the 1987 film.

For those unfamiliar with The Lost Boys, we have the official trailer below. What do you think of The Lost Boys coming to the small screen?

The Lost Boys movie synopsis: "Strange events threaten an entire family when two brothers move with their divorced mother to a California town where the local teenage gang turns out to be a pack of vampires."
