Corey Feldman Talks The Lost Boys Future29.11.12 # Sequel # One Comment
1980’s teen star Corey Feldman has opened up about the future of vampire series The Lost Boys.
Originally released in 1987, the first film was the pinnacle of MTV horror, and starred a young Keifer Sutherland as the bleach blonde vampire motorcycle gang leader of a small town with a larger body count than population.
After the original film’s release, fans went wild on rumors of a sequel titled The Lost Girls, but nothing ever materialized. After 20 years, Warner Premiere released the straight to video The Lost Boys 2: The Tribe, and while the film was virtually panned, everyone loved seeing Feldman reprise his most loved role as one half of vampire killer duo The Frog Brothers. Another sequel, The Lost Boys 3: The Thirst, was released in 2010 to worse reviews than its predecessor.
Ignoring reviews and catering specifically to fans of the series, a fourth film was announced not long ago before Warner Premiere, who hemmed the two sequels, was shut down by Warner and all straight-to-DVD titles were dropped, including The Lost Boys 4.
Feldman said of the news “I am not sure if you are aware, but Warner Premiere has folded. The company that was assigned to make the films in The Lost Boys franchise are no longer in business. Therefore, that leaves The Lost Boys without a home. The Frog Brothers are homeless at the moment.”
“I would like to see the franchise stay alive. There is not a day that passes, that a fan doesn’t write to me and say, “What about the next The Lost Boys? Where is Lost Boys 4? What about another Frog Brothers movie? Frog Brothers TV show? Frog Brothers cartoon? People love it. People want to see more of it. Jamison Newlander and I are always down to get back into bed. But that being said, it’s Warner Bros. that drives that boat. It is a Warner Bros. film, it’s a Warner Bros. franchise. Without Warner Bros. behind it, there are no more Frog Brothers. The Bros. Warner need to get back into bed with The Bros. Frog. Then we can all have a great big movie orgy. Until then, we are all left as homeless Frogs.”
Looks like fans will be waiting a little while longer until that great big movie orgy.
