The Goonies

Perhaps Goonies never say die, but apparently some of them occasionally say “eh, no thanks.” While Corey Feldman, Sean Astin, and Josh Brolin have all voiced their interest in returning for a sequel, Jeff Cohen, who played Chunk, admits he’s not so eager.

Of course, none of that matters unless a Goonies sequel is actually happening, and at present things aren’t looking too great. However, there is another Goonies project coming in “another year or so,” according to director Richard Donner. It’s not a movie, though — it’s an immersive off-Broadway show. Read the Goonies 2 Chunk comment and learn more about the Goonies stage project after the jump.  Read More »

goonies 2 script

When the director of a movie says it’s going to happen, you generally believe it’s going to happen. That’s what occurred last spring with Richard Donner, director of The Goonies, said “We’re doing a sequel.” That was news to some of the film’s stars, like Sean Astin and Corey Feldman. Astin seemed confident the film would happen, but had a more specific update that producers were looking for writers based on a solid outline.

If that’s the case, that’s as far as things have gone though. Producer Frank Marshall recently said there is no script at all, but talks have happened. Read The Goonies 2 script update below. Read More »

Now, in a new interview, you can watch Feldman and Astin discuss it amongst themselves. Astin says original screenwriter Chris Columbus is back in some capacity and that producers are “actively trying to secure a writer based on an outline that they feel really confident about.” Watch the full video below.

Goonies Sequel
A Goonies sequel? There have been many rumors over the years, and supposedly a script that fell into development hell, but as Hollywood continues to search for my recycled ideas — The Goonies never say die.

When asked if any of the stars from the original movie would return for The Goonies 2, Donner responded “Hopefully all of them!” Watch the full video of Donner talking comic book movies and the Goonies sequel, embedded after the jump.
