WHAT ARE THE OC ACTRESSES UP TO?
I’ve gathered new information on what Melinda Clarke and Autumn Reeser are up to at the moment, they both have recently landed new roles. When I get premiere dates, I will let you all know. Here goes:
Autumn Reeser, sparkplug of the fourth season of FOX’s “The O.C.,” will try to breathe new life into the long-gestating “Lost Boys” sequel.
Reeser will take the lead in “Lost Boys 2: The Tribe,” a sequel to Joel Schumacher’s 1987 vampire classic.
P.J. Pesce is apparently directing the sequel, which has been rumored in different incarnations for well over a decade.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the plot focuses on siblings (Reeser and, we assume, somebody else) who move to Trinidad, California, where Reeser’s character is seduced by the leader of a cult of vampire surfers. History suggests that that’s never a good thing.
Production began this week, with both Corey Haim and Corey Feldman rumored to be reprising their roles from the original film.
Over two seasons on “The O.C.,” Reeser’s Taylor Townsend character went from social-climbing antagonist to beloved romantic lead and the actress was credited with helping restore the show’s creative juice in its final episodes. Reeser appeared in a CW pilot this past development season and will next be seen in the ABC Family movie “Nature of the Beast.”
The former Alias actress will also be gracing the small screen with an upcoming television pilot. The crime-drama series is called The Man, which is about an undercover cop that struggles to find balance between his professional and personal life. The cast also includes Melinda Clarke (The O.C.) and LL Cool J.
