LOS ANGELES – Corey Haim was never supposed to play an actual role in the latest installment of the classic cult franchise, "The Lost Boys," but it turns out that the child star, who passed away earlier this year, has a creepy "presence" in the horror flick, which goes straight to DVD in October.
"Corey Haim would love it, he was very excited about the fact we were making (another) one. He did some interviews and said that while he couldn't be part of it, he was looking forward to seeing how his character would develop," Corey Feldman, who was joined by his original co-star and "Frog Brother" Jamison Newlander, told Fox 411's Pop Tarts at the Comic Con Convention in San Diego over the weekend. "This film is actually dedicated to Corey. When you see the film, there are scenes that pertain to his character and most people when they watch the film will believe that we shot it after he was gone."
It is unclear why Haim was excluded from the third film, but Feldman assured us that they always had solid plans for him to rejoin the cast for the yet-to-be developed fourth installment.
"We we're actually discussing what we were going to do with his character. The idea was to introduce his character in a way in the third and bring him back for the forth. So it is very sad for the loss, both personally and as part of the franchise," he continued. "It is sad, and a bit shocking when you watch the film. It is very eerie."
On another note, Megan Fox recently tied-the-knot with longtime lover Brian Austin Green, yet that isn't discouraging Feldman from seeking out the sexy starlet - all in the name of a professional pursuit, of course.
"If I could suck anyone's blood? Megan Fox," he said. “I read a couple of weeks ago that she had stated that “Lost Boys” was one of her favorite films and would love to be part of the franchise if we were to do another one, so you never know. The possibilities are endless.”
And while "Twilight" and its cast of aesthetically attractive vampires has certainly spawned an international sensation over the last couple of years, Newlander and Feldman want you to remember that R-Patz and K-Stew are only variations on of a trend they feel that they ultimately conceived.
"We're here to reclaim our stakes. We were one of the first to start the teen vampire film, and in our new film there are a few nods to the 'Twilight' saga," Feldman added. "But at the same time we're back, we're the originals fighting vampires and we look damn good doing it."
