According to director Richard Donner a sequel to The Goonies is going to happen! This is something I've wanted to see happen for as long as I can remember, ever since I watched the first film when I was kid in 1986. I don't know why it took so long to actually get a sequel into development, but after all these years and all the rumors, it sounds like it's finally going to happen.
When asked by TMZ if he was going to make another comic book movie, the filmmaker replied with, “If you call ‘Goonies’ a comic book. We’re doing a sequel.”
He went on to say that he hopes to get the entire original cast back which includes actors such as Corey Feldman, Josh Brolin, Sean Astin, Jeff Cohen and Martha Plimpton. Donner didn't say whether the film will follow the gang 28 years later or feature them in smaller side roles. I hope that it takes the gang on another fun and crazy adventure though. I don't want to see a Goonies movie that focuses on their kids, but of course that is a possibility.
For those of you who doubt this news, Donner went on to solidify it saying,
“It will happen. I’m 1000 percent certain there will be a sequel. I will bet my children on it.”
So there ya have it, a Goonies sequel is going to happen! That is unless Donner doesn't really like his kids. Below you'll find a photo of the cast and crew of the original film all grown up.
