The Lost Boys 4 won't be happening, as Corey Feldman confirms the end of the series...

Now, appreciating that for many of us the death of The Lost Boys franchise was immediately after the original film was released, this recent statement by Corey Feldman nonetheless all but confirms that the possibility of any future films happening is not high.

He said that “People love it. People want to see more of it. Jamison Newlander and I are always down to get back into bed. But that being said, it's Warner Bros. that drives that boat. It is a Warner Bros film, it's a Warner Bros franchise. Without Warner Bros behind it, there are no more Frog Brothers. The Bros. Warner needs to get back into bed with the Bros. Frog. Then we can have a great big movie orgy. Until then we are left as homeless Frogs.”

This ties into the fact that Warner Bros has shut down the Warner Premiere arm of its business, that was making direct-to-DVD sequels to some of its older franchises.

Appreciating that the sequels have hardly made much of an impact at all critically speaking, with both currently holding a 0 rating on Rotten Tomatoes, they both however more than made their budgets back. That's more to do with the appeal of the original, of course, than the sequels themselves. But it seems as though there will be no more Lost Boys now. Until someone announces a remake/reboot...

I only thought there was one...

LB2 was pretty dire, but 3 was actually ok-ish if you went with it.

there IS only one.

There is no "series", just one great move and a couple of blowing-in-the-winds.

"Without Warner Bros behind it, there are no more Frog Brothers..."

Correction: without Corey Haim there are no more Frog Brothers.

Corey Haim wasn't a Frog....Edgar and Allen were the Frog brothers...

Yes, but the ONLY reason the Frog Brothers worked was because of his interaction with them. Let's face it, Feldman and that other guy in the movie weren't exciting to watch by themselves, it was only when Haim's character joined them that it worked.

I think that they should do what tcm3d did to the original tcm do to the lost boys! I would have them pick up where the original left off making that max had a vamp wife who needed to be destroyed along with him to completely end the terror and have it come to present day where a bunch of kids are disappearing in a beach town and the frog brothers are brought to the new town to destroy her and her new stable of vamp boys! I would even bring it to an east coast town such as the wildwood.cape may nj~! than the head vamp finds out that the frog brothers killed her husband and boys and is now on a bloody rampage to get to them first! a rocker like Lita Ford would be perfect to play the head vamp or someone with her look!

come on warner we want a follow up film xx

I liked 3 because it tied up loose ends and practically ignored 2.
