Good thing the Goonies never say die! That’s right, the 1985 cult classic film The Goonies apparently has a sequel in the works.
The Goonies director Richard Donner confirmed the exciting news that the beloved children’s adventure would indeed be hitting our screens once more whilst signing autographs in Beverly Hills, California, over the weekend.
“If you call The Goonies a comic book — we’re doing a sequel,” Donner told TMZ reporters after he was asked whether he intended to make another comic book movie.
The 83-year-old director went on to explain that he hopes to reunite the original cast for the follow-up production. That would mean stars Corey Feldman, Josh Brolin, Sean Astin and Jeff Cohen would all be back, and seeing those four stars in the same film again — given how diverse their acting careers have become since their hit childhood movie — is definitely going to be unmissable!
The Goonies is often cited as one of the top children’s films from the ’80s, but would the sequel have the original actors starring as the same characters almost 30 years later?
Donner has not revealed any more about the sequel at this time. However, this is not the first time there has been talk of a The Goonies comeback. According to the New York Daily News, in 2010, the famed director was actually completely against the idea.
“I don’t think there’d be a sequel,” Donner told Collider via the New York Daily News. “I wouldn’t remake it. If anything it’d be something new and fresh.”
