Hue news hit the web last week when it was revealed that Corey Haim will in fact be joining Corey Feldman in Warner Home Video’s Lost Boys 2: The Tribe, which is currently shooting new scenes. Today writer Hans Rodionoff got in touch with Moviehole.net to talk a bit about how this came about. You can read all about it inside.
The film, due for release in July, is heading into re-shoots this week. It’s the first time since 1997’s “Busted” that old hombres Corey Haim and Corey Feldman have shared a film set.
This sequel takes us to the shady surf city of Luna Bay, California, where vampires quickly dispatch anyone who crosses their path. Into this dark world arrive Chris Emerson (Hilgenbrink) and his younger sister, Nicole (Reeser). Having just lost their parents in a car accident, the siblings move in with their eccentric Aunt Jillian and become new prey for the locals’ way of life. When Nicole unwittingly falls for a local vampire, Chris must locate and destroy the gang’s lifeline before his sister’s transformation is complete; to do this Chris finds himself relying on the expertise of none other than Edgar Frog (Feldman).
Subtle references to characters from the original film, and cameos from returning actors offer homage to the Lost Boys legend and set a sinister tone of impending doom.
