It's about time the Lost Boys got some screen time, and we're not talking about Kiefer Sutherland and Corey Haim. We're referring to the group of bandits who appear in J.M. Barrie's classic Peter Pan. The group of unruly misfits are getting their own show.

The series is called The League of Pan, and it follows in the footsteps of Grimm, Once Upon a Time and the upcoming Beauty and the Beast. It's another modernized take on characters pulled from popular children's stories.

The League of Pan is based on an idea from writer Brian McCauley Johnson. It's a re-imagining of Barrie's original story that takes place 10 years after the Lost Boys left Neverland. It will have all the fairy-tale elements we love, paired with more serious themes.

Over time, the Lost Boys have been portrayed in many different ways. In the first incarnation of the play they were listed as Tootles, Nibs, Slightly, Curly, and the Twins. In Steven Spielberg's 1991 adaptation Hook, we were introduced to Rufio, Thud Butt, Pockets, Ace, Don't Ask, Too Small, Latchboy and No Nap. We wonder which lineup the writers will use for this show?

Imagine TV and 20th TV is currently looking for a co-writer and showrunner to help produce the pilot.

Are you interested in seeing the Lost Boys all grown up?
