The current obsession with changing the gender of characters continues with the latest news concerning the TV series of The Lost Boys. Following on from hearing that Tyler Posey and Kiele Sanchez the series leads playing big brother Michael and mom respectively, Lucy, we’ve now recently been informed that the Frog Brothers, made famous by Corey Feldman and Jamison Newlander in the 1987 cult favourite, will now be the Frog Sisters. Cheyenne Haynes [Camping] and Haley Tju [Bella and the Bulldogs] will be playing Liza and Cassie, though side from the gender change, it sounds like the Frogs will remain generally the same. They’ll still be running a comic book shop in Santa Clara and will be well aware of the weird shit going on. Also announced on the same day was the casting of Sarah Hay as Mollie, a new character but with seemingly some elements of Star.
“Turned into a vampire by David, Mollie has become her maker’s rival for leadership of the vampire gang. She travels in a small pack with her eternally 8-year-old son, Laddie, and a guardian, Hiram, who’s there to make sure she doesn’t get into too much trouble”.
The pilot will be directed by Catherine Hardwicke whose previous experience with vampires was – the first [though by no means the worst] Twilight, but let’s try to ignore that as Thirteen and Lords of Dogtown were both very good. The writer is Heather Mitchell.
