Joel Schumacher Lost in "Lost Boys" Sequel

by | February 4, 2007 | Comments

Fans of ’80s movies, cool vampire horror or The Coreys Haim and Feldman have all awaited the possibility of a "Lost Boys 2." But the idea that Warner Brothers might produce it for the straight to DVD market is disheartening. Even the film’s director, Joel Schumacher, can’t ensure the classic gets a proper theatrical sequel.

"I told them to do ‘Lost Girls’ and not do ‘Lost Boys Sequel,’" Schumacher said. "There is no ‘Lost Boys‘ sequel. All the boys are dead. But The Lost Boys are all dead. The Coreys are too old. So what would be the movie? You’d have to make up a whole new set of characters."

That is likely the plan. See how big the Stifler family got in the "American Pie" sequels. "It could be a vampire movie. It’s a great name. I told them to do ‘Lost Girls.’ It’d be great. I said, ‘Do gorgeous teenage biker chicks who are vampires. It’ll be great.’ But they don’t listen to me."

Schumacher doesn’t even get paid for the use of the title. "No, no, no. I don’t own it. I don’t own ‘Lost Boys.’"

The director had been approached for other sequels, but if he didn’t want to make them, they were fair game. "There is no sequel to ‘Flatliners‘ in my mind, but they own those. You don’t own them. You’re not yours. They did ‘8mm 2‘ which we knew nothing about. They slapped the title on a movie that had nothing to do with 8mm. I think it was direct to DVD because the ‘8mm‘ DVD made so much."
