Apparently, Goonies never say die. That's what we learned in the 1980s, but fans of the Steven Spielberg-produced kids adventure knew all hope seemed lost for a sequel to
, director of the 1985 film, who said the sequel is happening.
While signing autographs, Donner told the TMZ reporter who asked if he'd do another comic book movies, "If you call Goonies a comic book. We re doing a sequel."
Donner also said he hopes the entire original cast would return. That means Sean Astin, Corey Feldman, Josh Brolin, Jeff Cohen and Martha Plimpton.
So in this age of sequels, prequels, reboots and whatnot, revisiting "The Goonies" seems inevitable and appropriate. And considering some of the rehash trash we get from the studios, bringing back the old gang doesn't sound like such a bad idea.
Sadly, John Matuszak (who played Sloth) passed away four years after "The Goonies" released, but they'll surely work in a fitting tribute to the would-be Superman who helped save the day.
Of course, Donner hasn't directed a movie since the 2006 Bruce Willis action flick "16 Blocks," but the "Lethal Weapon" maestro surely has plenty left in the tank, at least for one more treasure hunt with this motley crew.
Would you dig a "Goonies" sequel? Should they just leave these classics alone?
