The Goonies sequel has been big news since director Richard Donnor surprisingly announced that it was going was going to happen last month. It was later revealed that Steven Spielberg wrote the story for the film, and that there is an outline. Now according to Sean Astin and Corey Feldman producers are actively working on securing a screenwriter to write the script.
The two Goonies actors recently appeared on Huff Post Live, and they talked about the sequel for a bit. They offered a few updates on what's going on with it, and how they got the news. It's awesome to hear that things are moving forward! Astin had this little update to offer:
"I happen to know that they are actively trying to secure a writer based on an outline that they feel really confident about. When Steven [Spielberg], who ultimately is the decision-maker on this, when he has felt the magic and he and [The Goonies director Richard Donner] are in agreement, which I believe will happen, then it will be a thing."
I truly believe that The Goonies 2 is going to happen, and I could be more excited about seeing the old gang back together again for another Goonies adventure!
