IESB scored some news this evening that Warner Home Video has slated The Lost Boys 2 for production in 2007. We are able to 100% confirm his scoop because one of our good friends has actually gone in with the possibility of directing the long delayed sequel. Read on for the news on who mgiht return, what the film could be about and more.
Before we dive into IESB‘s scoop, we can confirm to you guys that Warner Home Video has been in deep discussion with a few directors and are in fact looking to push this project forward. The only problem is there is no script yet, just an idea. The idea is exactly as was reported: “The story will revolve around surfing vampires in Southern California.”
The website also mentions “that executive producer Richard Donner talked about doing a sequel that would show Edgar and Alan Frog A.K.A. The Frog brothers (Corey Feldman and Jamison Newlander in the original film) starting a vampire hunting business that would take them to Washington D.C.” We have also confirmed that Feldman has been approached for the sequel, and that there’s a good chance he’ll return. Think they might run with this subplot?
We’ll keep you posted on our end and if our buddy is chosen you’ll hear about it here first. Watch for more details as they come in.
The original The Lost Boys film was released in 1987 and is about a group of kids from Santa Clara (Santa Cruz-like town), CA. who must fight a gang of motorcycle riding teenage vampires. It starred Jason Patric, Corey Haim, Kiefer Sutherland, Jami Gertz, Corey Feldman, Dianne Wiest, Edward Herrmann, Alex Winter, Barnard Hughes, and was directed by Joel Schumacher.
