Remember ‘The Lost Boys‘? The super popular 1987 cult hit vampire movie with Corey Feldman and Kiefer Sutherland. “Sleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old. Never die. It’s fun to be a vampire.” Of course you remember, everyone knows about The Lost Boys. It’s one of those vampire flicks that damn near everyone has seen.
Ok now do you remember the Lost Boys: The Tribe? …didn’t think so. This sequel came out in 2008 and also featured Corey Feldman. The movie was about some surfer kids with a vampire problem, they then seek out Feldman’s character for help with the blood suckers. This straight to dvd movie bombed, it failed pretty badly. So, why the hell would they be making a Lost Boys 3?
Yes, the latest movie news is that Lost Boys 3 will be made. Maybe it is the newfound vampire love in entertainment that has caused them to give a Lost Boys sequel another shot, maybe they just didn’t learn the first time around, who knows. What we do know that this new movie was written by Evan Charnov (Fearless) and that it will be directed by Dario Piana (The Deaths of Ian Stone). We also hear that Corey Feldman is coming back yet again. The synopsis for the new flick is…
When veteran vampire hunter Edgar Frog (Corey Feldman) finds himself destitute and almost friendless, he thinks his life has hit bottom; but wealthy vampire-romance novelist Gwen Liebling offers him a small fortune to go on the vampire hunt of a lifetime and rescue her son Peter from the Alpha Vampire D.J. Dusk. With the help of his friends Zoe, Lars, and Blake, Edgar heads into a bloody battle to exterminate evil.
Chances are this new flick will bomb just as badly as ‘The Tribe’ did, but who knows. Maybe vampires are just popular enough right now that the film will work out. Unlikely, but we’ve seen crazier. What do you guys think? Do you think any Lost Boys sequels will ever be as good as the first?
