So Lifetime, which has been developing this contemporary reboot since 2004, has finally cast the leads for The Blue Lagoon.
Australian actors Brenton Thwaites and Indiana Evans are the third set of youngsters picked to be stranded on a dessert island together, fall in love and make whoopee. The newcomers, who starred together in Australian soap opera Home and Away, will follow in the footsteps of Brooke Shields, Christopher Atkins, Brian Krause and Milla Jovovich.
If history repeats itself, this role will be the beginning of Indiana's rise to international stardom, while Brenton will probably just fade away like the other two male actors who have played Richard in the past.
Are U looking forward to this made-for-TV remake of The Blue Lagoon?
