According to a news release from casting agency TW Cast and Recruit, extras of all ages will be paid $64 for eight hours of work, plus time and a half for every hour after that. Those applying must be available for 10 to 12 hours on weekdays, with some days extending longer than 12 hours.

Available extras roles include pedestrians, EMTs, joggers, surfers and fishermen.

TW Cast & Recruit said all applicants must be Wilmington locals.

The Lost Boys is an adaptation of the 1987 horror movie of the same title. In the show, two brothers learn the sinister reason the kids in a seaside town never grow up.

According to ABC-affiliate WWAY, the CW originally ordered a pilot for the series in 2018, but the show didn't make the 2019-2020 lineup. Show creators reworked the script, hired a new cast and moved filming to Wilmington from California.
