While there’s really no new or important information in it, Moviehole just posted the production announcement from Warner Bros. for Lost Boys 2: The Tribe, which is currently rolling in Vancouver under the watchful eye of From Dusk Till Dawn 3: The Hangman’s Daughter director PJ Pesce.
In it are some basic character descriptions and a plot outline, but what the kids really care about are the Frog Brothers, right? Sure. The release confirms it; Feldman and Jamison Newlander will return, but there ain’t going to be any Haim this time out. Sorry, girls. No reason was given in the production announcement, of course, but I’m viewers of “The Two Coreys” will hear about it eventually…
As for plot, here’s the rundown the release gives; This sequel takes us to the shady surf city of Luna Bay, California, where vampires quickly dispatch anyone who crosses their path. Into this dark world arrive Chris Emerson (Hilgenbrink) and his younger sister, Nicole (Reeser). Having just lost their parents in a car accident, the siblings move in with their eccentric Aunt Jillian and become new prey for the locals’ way of life. When Nicole unwittingly falls for a local vampire, Chris must locate and destroy the gang’s lifeline before his sister’s transformation is complete; to do this Chris finds himself relying on the expertise of none other than Edgar Frog (Feldman). Subtle references to characters from the original film, and cameos from returning actors offer homage to the Lost Boys legend and set a sinister tone of impending doom.
I do love me some impending doom! Keep it here for updates on The Lost Boys 2: The Tribe as they come in.
