joey spiotto art show

We’ve featured artist Joey Spiotto‘s work many times on the site over the past few years. You might recognize his little Golden Book parody covers or his fictional band Vinyl record cover art. We even featured him earlier in the week as his book Alien Next Door hit stores nationwide.

To coincide with his book release, Gallery 1988 is hosting Joey’s second solo art show which debuts tonight. Storytime 2 will see a return of Joey Spiotto’s demented children’s books. Hit the jump to get a preview of some of the 50-or-so pieces which will be on display at the exhibition.

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 »

Chris Columbus Gremlins Remake


UPDATE: We’ve heard from our good sources that the new Gremlins movie won’t be a remake, but a sequel-style reboot set 30 years after the original. Original post follows.

Chris Columbus may be going back to his roots. A new report indicates that he’s set to produce both the Gremlins remake and the Goonies sequel, having written the screenplays for the originals. Hit the jump for all the details.

Goonies Sequel

As a huge fan of the original Goonies, I was as confused as anyone when director Richard Donner chose TMZ as the outlet to say a sequel was coming. Thankfully, I wasn’t the only one. Stars Corey Feldman and Sean Astin were both surprised when Donner came out to talk about The Goonies sequel.

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. Goonies director Richard Donner was approached (err corned with a video camera) by gossip site TMZ and dropped the bomb that “We’re doing a sequel” to the 1980’s classic film Goonies. 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.

The Goldbergs Goonies episode

ABC’s The Goldbergs is all about the ’80s — the fashions, the TV shows, the technologies, the toys. So it was only a matter of time before they got around to paying their respects to one of the era’s most treasured cinematic entertainments, 1985’s The Goonies.

In Tuesday night’s episode, Adam (Sean Giambrone) gets the opportunity to live out his Goonies fantasies when he gets caught up in a treasure hunt. He calls upon the help of his friends and family, assigning each person a Goonies counterpart to model themselves after — including, naturally, the distant acquaintance that Adam enlists to fill the token Asian role. Awkward. Preview the episode after the jump.

How does the Los Angeles-based Gallery 1988 top their Crazy4Cult show? By announcing a team-up with The Autumn Society for something they are calling “The 3G Show”.
