Though I still refuse to get excited for the sequel to Lost Boys which, as I said in the latest Dinner for Fiends, is way past its prime, I have to admit it seems like Warner Premiere is at least putting some thought into the direct-to-DVD follow up, rather than just slapping a vampire movie together and throwing a “2” on it.
This morning Moviehole got word about some major casting updates for The Lost Boys 2: The Tribe; Kyle Cassie (Devour), Shaun Sipos (The Grudge 2) and Merwin Mondesir (Godsend) are all up for the roles of the titular lost boys who this time out are using surfing and muscled physiques to entice their prey, as opposed to dangly earrings and dirtbikes. How times have changed.
In addition to this casting coup the Hole also learned that, while issues with Corey Haim’s work visa are causing roadblocks to him being in the movie, he is still very much a part of The Tribe, as are pals Corey Feldman and Jamison Newlander (aka, the “other” Frog Brother). Apparently his role in the film is integral, so the producers are working to find a way to get him in there somehow.
So there’s your Lost Boys 2 update for the week; I hope this just makes the rest of your work week that much more tolerable!
