Warner Home Video has decided to make a direct to DVD sequel of the hit vampire film The Lost Boys.
The Lost Boys 2 is scheduled to begin production in 2007, but they don’t even have a script. Yes, you read that correctly. They are courting a few different directors, and as you may assume, they are iffy on the No Script “Thing”. The only thing that Warner has is an idea. And a simple one at that: “The story will revolve around surfing vampires in Southern California.”
Executive producer Richard Donner talked about doing a sequel that would show The Frog brothers (who were played by Corey Feldman and Jamison Newlander in the original) starting a vampire hunting business that would take them on a journey to Washington D.C. That would have been a great film, I kid you not.
We assume this storyline will probably be abandoned for their genius surfing vampires idea. But IESB is reporting that Feldman has been approached for the sequel. And what else is he doing now-a-days? I assume he’d jump at the chance to do another movie.
The original film was released in 1987, starring Jason Patric, Corey Haim, Kiefer Sutherland, Jami Gertz, Corey Feldman, Dianne Wiest, Edward Herrmann, Alex Winter, and Barnard Hughes. It was about a group of kids from Santa Clara, CA who come up against a gang of motorcycle riding teenage vampires. The film was directed by Joel Schumacher.
Did You Know: Kiefer Sutherland was only meant to wear the black gloves while riding the motorbike. However, while messing around on the bike behind-the-scenes, he fell off, breaking his arm so he had to wear the gloves through the whole movie to cover his cast.
