The other Corey – that’s Feldman to you, sucka’ – posted a blog update with his take on Haim’s departure.
I feel that I need to address some of the statements that have been made in reference to Corey Haimâs and my friendship and his participation in Lost Boys 2. I have always considered Corey Haim a brother and dear friend and have always been there for him. Although I am deeply saddened that he has decided not to participate in Lost Boys 2, it was strictly his decision. For the record, I was not willing to go forward with any production or deal until I was assured that Corey Haim was onboard. I received confirmation from my representation that Haim had announced that he was officially attached to Lost Boys 2.
After starting production in Vancouver, I learned that Haim had chosen to pull out of the project. The reasons for his decisions are his and his alone. Although I am saddened by Haimâs departure, I am enjoying working on the film and am very excited about working with my Frog Brother Jamison Newlander and to carry the torch forward. I am very proud to be part of this highly anticipated sequel for Warner Brothers and feel confident that we are making a film that the fans will welcome as a complimentary addition to the franchise.
Personally, speaking, the Frog Bros. are Feldman and Newlander, so the loss of Haim doesn’t really come as a blow to me. It would have been nice to see the complete trifecta. Still, when it comes to slayin’ vamps, it’s the Frogs you want to call.
