Silberling to helm "Lost Boys"

Silberling to helm "Lost Boys"
Clint

At last, The Lost Boys are returning….hey, hang on a minute. It’s a different set of Lost Boys. No Sign of the Coreys, Fanged Kiefer or mullet-haired Billy Wirth anywhere. Brad Silberling ("Moonlight Mile") will direct and produce Paramount Pictures’ "Lost Boys," a true story inspired by a "60 Minutes II" segment. Outlaw Prods. also will produce. Now that don’t sound like the one we’ve been waiting for.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, The news magazine segment, which aired last year, tells the real-life story of a group of young boys who 15 years ago saw their villages and families burn during Sudan’s civil war. The boys, ages 7-11, began walking out of the region, and soon hundreds became thousands. Many died along the way as they walked across deserts and over mountains while eating wet mud and drinking their own urine to stay alive. In 1992, the emaciated children arrived at a refugee camp in Kenya, where they survived on one meal a day — wheat flour and maize. In 2000, the U.S. government began bringing the now-grown boys to America, where they began new lives.
