Corey Feldman Talks The Lost Boys Ball, The Thirst, and the Future of the Frog Brothers
For Feldman the driving force in his career right now is his fanbase, which he says is the inspiration behind not only "The Lost Boys Ball" but also the new storyline direction of the latest Lost Boys flick, The Thirst.
“When I first was approached for The Tribe, I honestly wasn’t thrilled with the story concept, but I saw the bigger picture of how we can reintroduce our Frog Brothers characters and give fans just enough so that they’d want to see more, which is exactly what happened,” explained Feldman. “We took the fan responses to the Frog Brothers in The Tribe to the studio and showed them how audiences wanted to see more of our story, and they really paid attention and understood what the potential was, which is amazing. And that’s how the ball got rolling on The Thirst.”
In this third Lost Boys film, part of the fun for Feldman as an actor who has been part of such a beloved franchise for over 20 years now is referencing other beloved characters from the past but still exploring new storylines with new faces.
Feldman said, “We did a lot of character references in The Thirst very intentionally so that we could leave the door wide open to bring back characters from other movies. It is fun to always see familiar faces, but we have to also keep the story moving forward, too, so that means we need to keep incorporating new characters into this Lost Boys world. If you can’t balance the two, then you don’t really have a sequel, you just have a rehash of the original.”
Now with The Thirst available worldwide, it’s looking like Feldman won’t be hanging up his red bandana anytime soon. The actor spoke about future adventures for him as well as fellow Frog Brother Jamison Newlander.
“Everything is looking really great for The Thirst, and I am so grateful to audiences out there who have checked out the film,” Feldman enthused. “Our pre-sale numbers exceeded all studio expectations, and the fans have really spoken out and shown their love for the film, which is great because ultimately I do this for the fans. The bottom line is that The Lost Boys franchise is completely fan-built, and we just want to make sure that as we go forward, we keep them in mind along the way.”
“We’ve not only discussed a fourth Lost Boys movie, but an entirely new trilogy, where you see The Frog Brothers almost as evil-fighting swashbucklers. We’re also exploring the idea of doing a prequel of both The Tribe and The Thirst,” Feldman added.
