For years and years, fans have been asking for the beloved 1985 adventured movie The Goonies to get a sequel. The film from director Richard Donner and producer Steven Spielberg is one of the most beloved movies to come out of the 1980s, and it’s always felt ripe for a legacy-quel introducing a new cast of kids and bringing back all of the stars from the original movie, now all grown up. Thankfully, there might be hope for a sequel from one of the film’s biggest fans.
Adam F. Goldberg is best known as the creator of the ABC series The Goldbergs, a family comedy series which revels in the nostalgia of the 1980s. In the wake of the recent reunion of the Goonies cast and filmmakers by way of Josh Gad’s Reunited Apart series, Goldberg revealed that he’s been developing an idea for The Goonies 2 for the past seven years. Recently, he revealed some concept art for the pitch he’s been working on for Richard Donner, and you can check it out below. Read More »
Tim Burton‘s horror comedy Beetlejuice is undoubtedly one of his best efforts. It’s when the filmmaker was firing on all cylinders and at the top of his game. After 32 years, you might think there’s nothing left to learn about the movie starring Michael Keaton as the ghost with the most, but French filmmaker Fred China, producer/1980s fanatic Adam F. Goldberg (creator of The Goldbergs), and producer Lee Leshen (Back in Time, Ghostheads) have a whole movie to prove you wrong.
Documentary for the Recently Deceased is a forthcoming project about the making of Beetlejuice that will dive deep into the production of the film, from shooting in the small town of East Corinth, Vermont to crafting intricate stop-motion animated creatures and effects. The good news is you don’t have to wait for a sneak peek, because there’s already a trailer to tease the story behind the beloved pop culture cornerstone. Read More »
Remember Fanboys? It was a comedy released in 2009 following a group of friends in 1999 who decide to break into Skywalker Ranch in an attempt to steal a rough cut of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. But it’s not just because they want to see it early. The group learns that one among them has been diagnosed with cancer, and they don’t know if he’ll make it in time to see the movie. It’s a fairly cheesy comedy with some heightened elements, but it’s a fun romp for Star Wars fans.
However, it sounds like a whole new group of fans might get a similar treatment with a Fanboys sequel. Writer Adam F. Goldberg recently revealed that he’s meeting with the original film’s director Kyle Newman to discuss possibilities for Fanboys 2, and it sounds like it could focus on an attempt to steal the elusive Snyder Cut of Justice League.

It’s not often that we get blind-sided by a foreign film remake that gets us excited. The Japanese horror movies we usually anticipate, but this new German comedy sounds like it has A LOT of potential.
Warner Independent Pictures plans to remake Night of the Living Dorks, which is being described as Revenge of the Nerds meets Shaun of the Dead.
The Horror Channel has this to say about the original:
“Night of the Living Dorks will satisfy your latent craving for 80’s teen comedy, and provide zombie gut munching to boot. It’s more American Pie than Breakfast Club, and the zombies are decidedly Night of the Creeps rather than Day of the Dead, but despite lacking in Ringwald-age/Bub-age, this flick kicks ass.”
Okay, I’m sold. Where do I buy a ticket? Oh you want to hear more?
The movie follows three geek friends who decide to try an old voodoo ritual. When they later die in a car crash, they find themselves reborn as zombies, and try to take advantage of their new lifestyle.
Who’s behind this? Adam F. Goldberg, the guy whose writing credits include the Revenge of the Nerds remake (which has now fallen into development hell) and the upcoming geek film Fanboys.
Television show writer Chris Bishop (Drew Carey Show, Still Standing) has been hired to write the script.
Let’s hope this one gets fast tracked into production.
