Lost Boys was a great film and that nostalgia got us an updated sequel, which stood fine on its own but wasn’t quite worthy of the Lost Boys title, and now the Frog Brothers are back with Lost Boys 3: The Thirst out on Bluray and DVD on October 12th, Corey Feldman is talking about the plans they have should the release be a success.
“If [The Thirst] performs as it seems it’s going to, we’re open to not only another sequel, but we’re talking three more films, a second trilogy. We’ve plotted out three more films that could bring back more original characters. We’re also talking a television series.”
It also looks as if they are going on tour with a theatrical Lost Boys show.
“What we’re going to do is have a live theatrical experience with Live Nation and the House of Blues. It will give fans the opportunity to come to the House of Blues and see the original Lost Boys in a theatrical setting. They’ll also get a sneak peek of the new film and they can come in costume – there will be a costume contest – my band Truth Movement is going to perform.”
A theatrical road show? And have you heard Corey Feldman’s band? Hardly a draw.
Now if The Thirst is at least decent and they plot a trio of films that work, I would be interested in a Lost Boys trilogy or even a TV show, but TV is already littered with offshoot vampire shows, and the film market is also cluttered with Vampires.
This can only last so long and it may be too late for the vampire fad by the time they do any of this. Seems Feldman is riding this nostalgia to put himself back in the public eye.
Hopefully this all works out for the sake of The Lost Boys franchise.
