Director Richard Donner: 'The Goonies' sequel is happening
If you lament that the current generation of kids doesn't know or just doesn't understand the appeal of "The Goonies," fear not! A sequel is forthcoming, the film's director said Saturday.
Richard Donner, director of the 1985 adventure-comedy classic, told TMZ unprovoked while signing autographs in Beverly Hills, "We're doing a sequel."
When asked if any of the film's stars will return, Donner said, "Hopefully all of them."
The original film featured Sean Astin, Josh Brolin, Jeff Cohen, Corey Feldman and Jonathan Ke Quan, among others. Those five stars (except Cohen, 39) are now in their 40s.
"Goonies" was written by Steven Spielberg with screenplay done by Chris Columbus. Donner has since directed films such as "Scrooged," "16 Blocks" and all four installments of "Lethal Weapon," but he hasn't led a movie set since 2006.
It's too early in the film's production to even have a release date, but for now, feel free to dream about what the sequel might turn out to be.
