'The Lost Boys 4' Is Dead and the Frog Brothers TV Series Is Homeless

Corey Feldman reveals that the franchise has folded along with Warner Bros. Home Video banner Warner Premiere.

The Lost Boys franchise is a strange one. A cult hit from 1987, it was supposed to get a proper sequel two years after its release, which would have revolved around The Lost Girls. That never came to fruition. But the film, which was notable for bringing together two of that eras biggest teen stars, The Two Coreys, the late Corey Haim and Corey Feldman, continued to have a solid shelf life throughout the years.

In 2008, Warner Premiere, the home video division of Warner Bros., notable for turning some of the studios past hits into straight-to-DVD franchise, decided to revive The Lost Boys with Lost Boys: The Tribe, a film the fans didn't really want. It was more of a reboot than a true sequel, and it was quite disappointing. Except for the inclusion of its one returning star, Corey Feldman, who reprised his role as Edgar Frog, one half of the Frog Brothers, people despised most things about it. A true sequel, one that included Sam Emerson (Corey Haim) and Alan Frog (Jamison Newlander) was what they fans truly wanted.

Despite being a bad movie that not many people seemed to enjoy, Lost Boys: The Tribe was a big enough hit to warrant Lost Boys: The Thirst in 2010. Though Corey Haim wasn't returning as Sam (he was still alive during the time of production), the film was a true Frog Brothers adventure. And it was a surprise for fans, and it seemed to get the franchise back on track, and sailing in the right direction. Everyone was excited about the movie, and excited about future sequels. Lost Boys 4 was quickly building steam, and was set to revolve around The Frog Brothers battling a seaside Werewolf clan. There was even talk of a Frog Brothers TV series, which would have been in the same vein as Supernatural. Things were coming together fast, and it seemed like the Frog Brothers would be living on.

Then, on August 13th of 2012, Warner Bros. pulled the plug on Warner Premiere, due to growing economic uncertainty and a huge slump on the DVD market. What did that mean for Lost Boys 4?

We really had no clue, and no one was talking. Now, though, with his latest film 6 Degrees of Hell set for release this Tuesday, November 27th, Corey Feldman has agreed to update us on the looming state of The Frog Brothers. As of now, Lost Boys 4 is dead, and The Frog Brothers TV series is homeless.

"I am not sure if you are aware, but Warner Premiere has folded. The company that was assigned to make the films in The Lost Boys franchise are no longer in business. Therefore, that leaves The Lost Boys without a home. The Frog Brothers are homeless at the moment.

I would like to see the franchise stay alive. There is not a day that passes, that a fan doesn't write to me and say, "What about the next The Lost Boys? Where is Lost Boys 4? What about another Frog Brothers movie? Frog Brothers TV show? Frog Brothers cartoon?

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 need to get back into bed with The Bros. Frog. Then we can all have a great big movie orgy. Until then, we are all left as homeless Frogs."

Does anyone care anymore? Are you glad the franchise is done? Or do you want more Frog Brothers in your future?

The Lost Boys was released July 31st, 1987 and stars Jason Patric, Corey Haim, Dianne Wiest, Barnard Hughes, Edward Herrmann, Kiefer Sutherland, Jami Gertz, Corey Feldman. The film is directed by Joel Schumacher.

Lets even see the glistening sax player make a cameo lol ok KIDDING. But really... Do it like that and it will make bank. Period. The old school vamp lovers will flock to it and the new age Twilight freaks will see what a REAL vampire movie looks like. Get the group back together and make some money WB!!

    I want to see another lost boys movie! Only this time not only with frog brothers but perhaps with the other characters we are familiar with from the first one such as Michael and Star. And not only with an amazing storyline but as a big budget film and that could blow all the twilight bullsh*t out the tween's butt! lol

    I've never seen The Lost Boys. About 2 or 3 weeks ago they were filming at my local shops in Montmorency Melbourne for a new TV series of The Lost Boys, due to be released in 2014. Cast and crew were all very friendly and the locals had fun watching it all. Guess I'll have to watch it now :-)

    good they should never have had sequels - if he's so gun ho about it then he needs to make his own studio.
    Tom Welling did that.
