Well, now you don’t have any reason to whine or complain about the upcoming sequel to The Lost Boys, currently subtitled The Tribe, because the one and only Tom Savini will be in it!
“I’m one of the first vampires you see in the movie” he told Fangoria Radio, ”I’m a surfer who runs into the vampires at the beginning of the film, in a sequence that is shot very Sergio Leone-style [à la the extreme close-up prologue of the director's classic Once Upon a Time in the West]. They’re shooting The Tribe in Vancouver right now, and I’ll be there September 11.”
So there you go; sure the concept sounds ridiculous (surfing vampires, that is) but now that we know Savini has a lest a cameo, and both the Coreys are going to be back (“Both Coreys in for Lost Boys 2” – August 2007), we can just sit back and wait for the greatness to roll over us! Honestly, I’m not even sure if I’m being sarastic or not…
Savini also said that, thanks to the success of “The Two Coreys” TV show, Lost Boys: The Tribe has shunted it’s direct-to-video status and is heading to theaters instead. We’ll see if that is indeed the casein a few months when the release plans are solidified!
