Recently, Corey Feldman sat down for an extended chat with MTV News to discuss “Lost Boys: The Tribe”, the sequel to the 21-year-old cult smash that helped define his career, as well as premiere the film’s first trailer.
But if you’re geeking out at what Part II has to offer, wait’ll you get a load of what Feldman has in store for Part III, the actor teased, citing huge “potential” for the story to continue in a trilogy of films.
“The stage is set,” he said of the ending to “The Tribe.” “So it’s really up to you, the viewer, and you, the audience, to see that final chapter comes into fruition.”
While no official storyline has been discussed, Feldman says he’s got a slew of ideas for where to take the twisted, tragic tale of Edgar Frog – and, boy, does his dream plot have a Bite.
“What I would like to see? Personally the way I would like to see it go, I would like to see Edgar finally become a vampire himself and have to battle his own inner demons,” Feldman fantasized. “That’s where it should go in my mind.”
It’s an ending that Feldman insists would play to the dark side of the character, closing the coffin so to speak on his arc from brave young soldier to warrior of death.
“I think that part of the magic for the whole trilogy would be seeing those characters that you trust, that you love, turning to the dark side and figuring out if they could make their way back,” he mused. “For the guy who’s out there defending truth, justice, and the American way to be confronted with his own demons, and actually have to go down the path of the dark side – will he make it out? Or has he gone down so far that once he’s turned, there’s no hope, light? Who can save him? I mean, once Edgar Frog’s turned, anything’s possible.”
Including death, thinks Feldman. Would Edgar have to sacrifice himself to save mankind? Would he stab himself in the heart?
“You never know,” Feldman reasoned, a coy smile on his face. “Maybe his brother would have to do it for him – maybe Sam [Corey Haim].”
