Corey Haim’s longtime friend, and “Lost Boys” co-star, Corey Feldman, says the presence of the late actor lives on in his new movie, “Lost Boys: The Thirst.”
“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,” Feldman told FOX 411’s Pop Tarts over the weekend at Comic-Con in San Diego.
Haim, who died on March 10, 2010, of pneumonia, was not slated to appear in the new vampire movie, but the new installment still honors the late actor, according to his friend.
“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,” Feldman continued, adding, “We were 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. It is sad, and a bit shocking when you watch the film. It is very eerie.”
“Lost Boys: The Thirst” will be released on DVD on October 12.
