The Goonies is hands-down, one of the best movies of our time. I’m not even go into the plot, because if you have never seen it, then you need to stop reading this article and watch it. And then watch it again because you probably missed some things like the Truffle Shuffle and the exact note sequence that Andy has to play on the bone piano. I digress.
Since the 25th annivesary of the film a few years ago, we’ve heard rumors that another film would be coming. Richard Donner and the kids expressed an interest in returning to the roles that made them all famous, but it seems like we’re finally getting some traction on the project. Donner was recently asked if he would ever do another comic book movie, and his response was a bit surprising.
“If you call Goonies a comic book. We’re doing a sequel.”
Star, Corey Feldman is a little more worried that this is just a carrot being dangled over his head. He claims that Donner tried talking to him a few months prior about the project, even saying that Steven Spielberg was on board.
Corey adds, “It can’t be done without a perfect script! We all must be certain that it doesn’t miss the magic of the original.”
I just hope that this isn’t just a rumor like Ghostbusters 3. Feldman is correct though, without a good script this movie will be horrible, regardless of whose involved. As more news from Goonies 2 comes down, we’ll keep you posted here at DFAT!
