Warner Premiere closes doors, future of Lost Boys and Trick 'R Treat sequels uncertain

Cry, little sister-- Warner has announced the closing of its direct-to-video branch, Warner Premiere. The company has said it will “continue and complete production on its remaining film and digital series project into the Fall,” and that “the evaluation of potential digital content will be folded into Warner Bros. Digital Distribution, and Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Home Video will continue to produce and release animated films, such as Scooby Doo, Tom and Jerry and DC Universe.”

With the death of Warner Premiere so may go the potential for more LOST BOYS and TRICK 'R TREAT follow-ups. Though Warner reps don’t exactly seem to be scrambling to address fate of either franchise, I think we can safely say this throwing in of the STV towel diminishes their possibility for future production. If you consider we’ve experienced a solid year of radio silence on the LOST BOYS 4 and TRICK 'R TREAT 2 front, this assumption seems even more likely.

As a fan of TRICK ‘R TREAT, I have to admit I’m a little disheartened at the news. As a fan of the original LOST BOYS, I’ll enthusiastically admit this is likely for the best. I didn’t catch LOST BOYS: THE THIRST, but LOST BOYS: THE TRIBE was a veritable crime against the original. Thank God the death of this series could also give way to that LOST BOYS remake we’ve all been clamoring for, am I right?

Hey, where are you guys going? It was a joke!

Extra Tidbit: RETURN TO HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL, which starred Amanda Righetti (above), was also a Warner Premiere joint.
