Break out the garlic necklaces! Corey Haim and Corey Feldman are set to reprise the roles that made them famous in a sequel to 1987’s vampire-slayer hit The Lost Boys. And the catering crew might want to stock up on Gatorade: This straight-to-DVD version is set in the world of extreme sports. Lost Boys II: The Tribe is ”like X Games meets Jackass, ” says exec producer Mary Viola. ”Today’s vampires are adrenaline junkies.” In addition to Haim and Feldman, Boys features another casting coup: Angus Sutherland (half brother of original Boys star Kiefer), who appears with The O.C.’s Autumn Reeser and American Pie Presents: Band Camp’s Tad Hilgenbrinck.
The news comes three weeks after an episode of the A&E reality series The Two Coreys aired, in which Haim was shown crying when Feldman informed him that they wouldn’t be in the sequel. (Feldman’s manager says that when the episode was filmed last winter, only his client had been approached. Viola, however, says the filmmakers just began casting a few weeks ago and always hoped to feature the duo.) Now the 35-year-old Haim says he’s ”super-stoked” about the sequel, which he describes as ”dark and deep — think The Crow meets Point Break.” And that’s all he’ll say. ”I can’t give any secrets! I’ve waited 20 years for this. I’m not gonna ruin anything for anybody, even myself.”
