Lost Boys: The Tribe (2008)
(Warner Bros, Thunder Road)
* Lost Boys: The Tribe remains under tight wraps, but the basic plotline was disclosed by Corey Feldman in an interview with MTV: "Once again, you have a fish-out-of-water story of two young folks who move into a new town to visit their relatives and find themselves caught up with a bunch of bloodsuckers. I really like the script because it is very close and very true to the structure of the original film — same kind of scares, same kind of laughs, same kind of relationships."
* In a press release in Business Wire, Warner Premier revealed more details about the film: "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."
* Corey Feldman and Jamison Newlander will be returning as the vampire slaying "Frog Brothers," Edgar and Alan.
* Newcomer Greyston Holt, as Evan, finds himself up against the vampire horde as he fights to protect the object of his affection, Reeser.
* Jason Patric, who portrayed Michael in the first film, was rumored to be returning to the role for a small scene in the sequel; however, this was debunked in MTV's August 28 interview with Corey Feldman.
* While both of the Frog Brothers are returning, only Corey Feldman appears to have a significant role in the new film. Says Feldman: "Warner Bros. has further developed the script — they brought on a great writer (Hans Rodionoff), who came up with a great story line. And in that script they have included (me), Corey Haim and Jamison Newlander as featured parts in the film. In the script, as it is today, I am one of the leads. My involvement is very close to what my involvement was in the first one. So I'm pretty much scattered throughout. (Edgar) was always an outcast, but here his close-knit family have drifted apart. They've had a major problem, and because of that problem, Edgar today is working alone. The film is about him trying to still carry the torch as it were, without the aid and assistance of his partners. That leaves him in an even lonelier and even more delicate place than he was in the first film being the outsider that he already was."
