Director hopes to reunite Corey Feldman, Josh Brolin, Sean Astin and Jeff Cohen in follow-up of cult 80s children's adventure

The director of The Goonies, Richard Donner, has said a sequel to the cult 80s children's adventure is in the works.

Donner told gossip site TMZ that he hoped to bring back all the stars of the original film for the follow-up. That would mean a return for actors such as Corey Feldman, Josh Brolin, Sean Astin and Jeff Cohen, whose lives have taken diverse paths since the 1985 movie. Feldman, who has for years been the biggest cheerleader for "Goonies 2" is a reality TV star and singer in a ska band (as well as occasional actor), Brolin and Astin retain Hollywood careers and Cohen (Chunk) is an entertainment lawyer.

Donner, also the director of Superman and the Lethal Weapon films, was signing autographs in an undisclosed location when he was asked to comment on the proliferation of superhero movies in 2014 Hollywood. Asked if he would make another comic-book film, he said: "If you call The Goonies a comic book – we're doing a sequel." Prompted to reveal which stars of the original would return he replied: "Hopefully all of them."

The original Goonies centred on a group of Oregon pre-teens facing the loss of their homes due to the imminent building of a country club who find themselves on a hunt for pirate treasure. It was produced by Steven Spielberg and is often cited as one of the top children's movies of the 1980s. Rumours of a sequel have abounded for much of the past decade but no film has ever entered production.

Donner, 83, has not directed since 2006's 16 Blocks. However, he and his wife Lauren Schuler Donner own The Donners' Company, which continues to produce the X-Men films.

I remember taking my 2 girls to see it and just laughed my self sick. It was right there with Ghost Busters and Gremlins as far as those 2 little film critics were concerned.

I definitely watched it way too many times. My younger brother and I probably watched it 100 times.

I'm a huge fan of Goonies but I'm honestly not understanding this move. Seems to me any story concept would be forced. Donner and original cast or not, it's hard for me to see this working.

I'm curious what the plot would be too. If it were me, I would've been on the first boat in the water going after that rich stuff. Maybe the goonies did, became rich and the sequel could be revisiting them years later. They could be bored with being rich and end up on a much needed adventure. Sloth is the new mayor, Chunk has an ice cream store or restaurant, Data invented Apple/Microsoft, Mouth probably has a car dealership or is also a politician, maybe even hooked up with Stef, Brand and Andy are together but she made Brand get braces cuz she likes it😉. And Mikey has fixed up One Eyed Willy's ship and just sailing around on it.

Who knows? Maybe they were cursed on the ship and have begun aging at an accelerated rate and it's a year later😳

Either way it should be fun...I hope:D

No need to worry, it's just a money-grab.wink.gif

Clearly a money grab which is why Feldman has pushed it so hard for 20 years. If I had to guess it'll be the original Goonies have to go save their children the new Goonies from...that rich kid who's name I can't remember now who now owns a bank or something and is still holding a grudge.
