Meet ‘The Lost Boys’ Frog Sisters
Written by Heather Mitchell and directed by Catherine Hardwicke, The Lost Boys is set in sunny seaside Santa Carla, home to a beautiful boardwalk, all the cotton candy you can eat…and a secret underworld of vampires. After the sudden death of their father, brothers Michael (Posey) and Sam Emerson move to Santa Carla with their mother, Lucy (Sanchez), who hopes to start anew in the town where she grew up. But the brothers soon find themselves being drawn deeper and deeper into the seductive world of Santa Carla’s eternally beautiful and youthful undead.
Haynes and Tju will portray the Frog Sisters, Liza and Cassie, respectively. Sharp, cool and lightly Goth, the Frog Sisters are teenage locals who work at Santa Carla’s comic-book store. Until Sam arrives, they think they’re the only ones aware of the darkness in this town.
Liza and Cassie are of course replacing Edgar and Alan Frog, played by Corey Feldman and Jamison Newlander. Feldman kept the series alive by reviving his role in Lost Boys: The Tribe (2008) and Lost Boys: The Thirst (2010), both of which were met with pretty dire reviews from fans and critics (0% on Rotten tomatoes…youch!!!). So maybe it really is time to breath some more (undead) life into the franchise.
Don’y get too excited though. Just last year, the “fantastic” pilot for a new Tremors TV show flopped when shown to SyFy’s executives. Despite being a big iconic film of the 80’s (and with the return of Kevin Bacon), the film failed to get picked up. So keep your ears to the grounds, and your stakes sharp, because the Frog Sisters just might not be around to save the day.
