Hans Rodionoff, the writer on the eagerly anticipated 'Lost Boys 2', has been in contact with MovieHole to corroborate reports that Corey Haim had been reinstated for the sequel.
“Sam Emerson was in the earliest drafts of the screenplay, and when it looked like we weren't going to be able to cast Corey Haim, I begrudgingly took the scenes out and wrote around the holes. Recently, I got a call that said that Corey would be able to do the scenes, and Warner Bros. was happy enough with the movie that they felt like spending a little extra to work Sam Emerson into the movie would be money well spent. So, I dug back into my old files and found the deleted scenes with Sam Emerson and sent them to PJ. I really feel like Sam Emerson is a crucial part of the Lost Boys legacy, and I'm glad that his scenes will end up in the film.”
The sequel is due for release in July and is heading for re-shoots this week.
