He appears in the upcoming film Bone Tomahawk with Kurt russell.
Would you like to play alan again?
Yes, i would because i think we could do a great fourth movie, or a TV show maybe. it could be me and Corey chasing a bunch of hot young vampires, and maybe we could have some of the other guys come back or Kiefer could make an appearance.
Would any of alan’s skills or attributes have been useful i n real life?
i was very young at the time, and the stuff that Joel [ schumacher, director] was doing to get us to be tough and get into character helped me become more thick- skinned. i walked away from the movie a little tougher for having played alan.
What Would alan be doing noW?
i think alan would still be at it and very hi- tech. whether it was just vampires or it went even deeper now, he’d be pushing the boundaries.
i s there anything you think Was unfinished about his story?
right now, he’s wrapped up kind of nicely. with The Thirst he went on a journey to the vampire’s side and came back. not that there’s not more for him to do.
did you get any souvenirs from the set?
somewhere i have my army fatigues. i also took my set chair seatback with my name on it. what else would they have done with it?
i s there anything from the film you Wish Was real?
at the time i wished that Jami Gertz was in love with me and not with Jason Patric!
What Would i t say on the character’s gravestone?
alan may Be Back.
