According to Corey Feldman, Lost Boys 2 may still have a fighting chance at a theatrical run. Here’s what he had to say on his site via Themovieblog.com.
“There is a nasty rumor circulating that a decision to release LB2 straight to DVD has been madeâ€¦..THAT IS CATEGORICALLY UNTRUE!!! NO decision has been made as of yet. They will be voting on it next month so if you are a LB2 supporter and want to see it on the big screen now is the time to rise up and let the studio know by sending them your thoughts and concerns. There has been a lot of buzz about this and I just donâ€™t want any defeatist or negative attitudes to hamper the positive energy. It is still aliveâ€¦..”
The sequel to the 1987 cult hit The Lost Boys 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 gangs lifeline before his sisters 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.
