It's been a pretty full on and epic week for THE LOST BOYS 30th anniversary book project - LOST IN THE SHADOWS. Things kicked off in a rather 'excellent' way, with a 50min interview with Alex Winter, who of course played the vampire 'Marko' in the film. Shortly after that phone call, I received word that the director of THE LOST BOYS, the brilliant JOEL SCHUMACHER, will be joining us to talk about his time directing the movie.

My new book, LOST IN THE SHADOWS - The Story of THE LOST BOYS is now well under way. As of right now we have confirmed well over a dozen brand new interviews with cast and crew. The project, however, just got a huge boost, as I just got off the phone with the legendary Richard Donner!
