Even Corey Feldman admits it … Lost Boys 2: The Tribe sucked, but not in the way that everyone was hoping for. With the third one on the way Feldman spoke candidly about the sequel and why this time he thinks they have it right!
In an interview with Movie Mikes Feldman dropped the following on fans:
“The one thing I didn’t like about the second film was that I was kind of in the trenches by myself,” Feldman tells the site. “Edgar kept popping in every once in a while, and it felt odd to me. It felt like one of those movies where they couldn’t get it right. So the only way I was going to return for part 3 … if you remember I had it in my contract that Corey (Haim) had to be in the sequel as well, and Warner Brothers kept their word; they shot some sequences with Corey.”
“But because of the problems we had with Corey at the time, it wasn’t usable,” Feldman continues. “It wasn’t their fault. It was just what it was. Corey wasn’t able, at that point in his life, to deliver what we needed. So those parts were cut from the film and put in with the deleted scenes. And those scenes were done as pickups. When you see Corey and Jamison (Newlander, who was cast as Alan Frog) their shots were pick ups, they weren’t in the same scene with me. And I felt isolated. It was like I was carrying this torch. But this time around, Jamison IS in the film and it IS the return of the Frog brothers. And even though we didn’t get to have Corey in this film, a reference is made to his character…where he is and what’s going on with him…and it really feels like a continuation of the first film as opposed to a completely separate chapter.”
We’re hoping for the best, buddy, and have to admit the new trailer below actually looks pretty good. We shall see.
Look for the Dario Piana directed sequel co-starring Jamison Newlander, Sean Cameron Michael, Seb Catang, and Tanit Phoenix possibly as early as this fall.
When veteran vampire hunter Edgar Frog finds himself destitute and almost friendless, he thinks his life has hit bottom – but wealthy vampire-romance novelist Gwen Lieber offers him a small fortune to go on the vampire hunt of a lifetime and rescue her son Peter from the Alpha Vampire DJ X. With the help of his friends Zoe, Lars, and Blake, Edgar heads into a bloody battle to exterminate evil.
