Many people may not even be aware that there was a Lost Boys sequel, but last year saw the release of Lost Boys: The Tribe. The title became a straight-to-DVD sensation, making back its $5 million dollar budget in just three weeks of DVD sales. The Tribe saw the return of Corey Feldman as Edgar Frog, a vampire hunter with an attitude, as well as Angus Sutherland filling in for his brother Kiefer. Corey Haim returned as well, but only for one scene at the end of the movie, while the other Frog brother, Jamison Newlander, only appeared in an alternate ending found on the DVD. Feldman told ShockTillYouDrop that the Frog Brothers will reunite for the third installment, titled Lost Boys: The Thirst.
We can't give away that much information right now. All I can tell you is this is officially the return of the Frog Brothers. We've gone through many stories. This is the ninth or tenth draft of the script at this point. Really what I've been doing is listening to the fans and trying to give them exactly what they want. That's what's important to me. I know number one, they want to see the Frog Brothers.
The only problem that may occur is that Newlander appears as a vampire in the DVD bonus scene. Will the Frog Brothers be back fighting vampires, or each other? Newlander says it could go either way.
Well, [Feldman] could be the nightstalker, or I could! You never know what's going to happen. We can guarantee there will definitely be a lot of dead vampires in this movie.
Lost Boys: The Thirst will have a Twilight homage as it follows Feldman's Edgar Frog as he is hired by a vampire-romance novelist to save her son from an the Alpha Vampire D.J. Dusk. Shooting begins in South Africa this November, with Dario Piana (The Deaths of Ian Stone) directing. No release date has been announced, nor has Haim been confirmed to return. Posted 10.05.09 by Ryan
