Cashing in on all the Twilight hype is Warner Brothers' second sequel Lost Boys 3: The Thirst. According to Bloody Disgusting, Dario Piana, best known for his film The Deaths of Ian Stone, is gearing up to direct a third film in this popular vampire saga. The best news is that Corey Feldman and Jamison Newlander will be reprising their roles as Edgar and Alan Frog, world-class vampire hunters and surfboard shapers.
Apparently taking a cue from all of the Lost Boys: The Tribe reviews, Piana will this time focus the film solely on the plight of the hugely popular Frog Brothers. The storyline will attempt to cash in on the hoopla surrounding Stephanie Meyers and her novel series Twilight. The synopsis has been described as such:
"When veteran vampire hunter Edgar Frog finds himself destitute and almost friendless, he thinks his life has hit bottom. But wealthy vampire-romance novelist Gwen Liebling offers him a small fortune to go on the vampire hunt of a lifetime and rescue her son Peter from the Alpha Vampire D.J. Dusk. With the help of his friends Zoe, Lars and Blake, Edgar heads into a bloody battle to exterminate all evil."
The film is set to begin filming this November in South Africa. As per Corey Feldman's own blog, he and actor Corey Haim, whom he starred with in the original film The Lost Boys, have reconciled their differences in the wake of Michael Jackson's untimely passing. Feldman stated, "Haim and I finally spoke for the first time in over a year. He called to make a truce. For the record, there was never an issue worthy of trucing. This has been vastly demonsterised in the press, but the TRUTH is....I still love the guy, I still care about him, we are just very different people now and I honestly feel sad that it has gone this way. But who knows...Maybe one day we'll find our way toward working together again."
So it's still possible that Haim could still be a part of this third film. Lost Boys 3: The Thirst will be released in late 2010. It will most likely go direct to DVD, but there is still a slim chance that it will hit select theaters.
