The Goonies 2 has been a rumored sequel floating around Hollywood for years, but it never got off the ground and most just assumed it would never be. Recently, during an off-handed TMZ interview taking place in the street, original director Richard Donner confirms that the sequel is happening and that the entire cast will return!
He made the announcement after answers about Hollywood’s reliance on superhero movies, when asked if he’d ever return to the genre he helped created with 1978’s Superman, he says ”if you called Goonies a comic book.
Below is the following video where Richard Donner confirmed that Goonies 2 will be coming.
A script for Goonies 2 had been written a few years back, which follows a new group of kids, the sons and daughters of the original Goonies who all go off on their own adventure, just like the original gang. Most of the original cast including Sean Astin, Josh Brolin, Corey Feldman, Kerri Green, and Martha Plimpton have all expressed an interest in returning in the past few years to be part of the sequel.
Warner Brother even considered turning the title into a direct-to-video franchise much like what they did with Corey Felsman’s The Lost boys.
In 2008 it was rumored that a new writer had joined the project but this was never confirmed by the studio and it’s certainly a very odd way to announce a sequel that many eagerly awaited.
So, are you excited for The Goonies 2?
