I haven’t been this excited to se a direct to DVD movie since, well, never. And now Corey Haim’s manager told MTV that Haim might not appear in the Lost Boys sequel after all.
Apparently major logistical obstacles exist, concerning the immigration problems Haim may have in traveling in and out of the country (the film is being shot in Vancouver). I guess Warner Bros is currently working with the US Government to “rectify these issues.”
Let’s hope they figure it out, because a Lost Boys sequel with Corey Feldman but not Corey Haim seems, so much less appealing.
When Warner Bros announced that they were making a sequel to The Lost Boys, we were furious. Not only was it a sequel, but a direct-to-dvd sequel. Those are notoriously the worst because they usually became a remake of the original featuring an entirely new cast of bad actors and a horribly revamped script.
But there is good news afterall, according to Bloody-Disgusting – the two-Corey’s are back! Corey Feldman and Jamison Newlander are returning as the Frog Brothers, and Corey Haim will be reprising his role as Sam Emerson. Not only that but Angus Sutherland, Keifer’s half-brother (and son of Donald Sutherland) will star as this film’s vampire villian. How cool is that? Tad Hilgenbrink (Amusement) and Autumn Reeser (The O.C.) are signed to star in the film. Let’s hope they aren’t in the film too much.
The original film was released in 1987, and followed a group of kids from Santa Clara, CA who come up against a gang of motorcycle riding teenage vampires. Keifer Sutherland played the big bad vampire leader in the original, which was directed by Joel Schumacher.
From Dusk Till Dawn 3 director P.J. Pesce will start shooting The Lost Boys: The Tribe next week. I don’t know how they did it, but Warner Home Video all of a sudden got me excited about a direct-to-dvd sequel. Sure, it will probably suck – but at least it will feel like a somewhat real sequel.
Last month on their new reality television show, Feldman broke the news to his best friend Haim that Warner Brothers were making a direct-to-dvd sequel without them. Haim started crying. You can watch that footage here.
If you didn’t know, Corey Haim and Corey Feldman have a new reality television show on A&E. You must watch this video clip which features Corey Haim hitting rock bottom when he hears from Feldman that there is a Lost Boys direct to dvd sequel and he wasn’t asked to be a part of the cast. We wrote about the sequel back in January, and much like Haim we also cried (okay, may-be not – but we got really angry – I swear). Check out the video clip after the jump.

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.” Read More »
