In the original film (with one of the best soundtracks, btw), Teenage brothers Michael (Jason Patric) and Sam (Corey Haim) move with their mother (Dianne Wiest) to a small town in northern California. While the younger Sam meets a pair of kindred spirits in geeky comic-book nerds Edward (Corey Feldman) and Alan (Jamison Newlander) "The Frog Brothers", the angst-ridden Michael soon falls for Star (Jami Gertz), but she kind of already belongs to David (Kiefer Sutherland), leader of a local gang of vampires. Sam and his new friends must save Michael and Star from the undead, and their mother from her would-be suitor who may or may not be the father of the local brood of vampires.

No word on casting yet, but we'll let you know what else we hear.
