This one made me throw up in my mouth a little.


Back in August, the “Goonies” rumor mill went into overdrive when Corey Feldman revealed to MTV News that talks had resumed for a possible animated sequel to the classic 80s flick. Now his co-star Sean Astin has weighed in, exclaiming that as far as he’s concerned, “Goonies 2” is an “absolute certainty.”
“The writing’s on the wall when they’re releasing the [”Goonies”] DVD in such numbers,” enthused the fan-favorite actor, who garnered acclaim in such films as “Rudy” and “The Lord of the Rings,” and is now appearing in the baseball epic “The Final Season.”

According to Feldman, numerous plotlines are floating around, with his favorite involving the children of the original Goonies embarking on an adventure of their own. That idea’s a home run for Astin, who says the real-life growth of the actors should factor heavily into a “Goonies 2.”

“Steven [Spielberg] and Dick [Donner] and all the powers that be … they really feel like the thing that made the movie strong was that it was about kids, so they really want to make the next movie about kids…the next generation of Goonies. And they’ve had a hard time tackling that.”

Like Feldman, Astin sees the passing of the torch concept to be a logical progression for the franchise. “I have three children,” he said, “and Corey’s got a kid now [too]. So as we now all have kids who are coming into the age that we were when we made the movie, it’s more likely to me that they’ll figure out how to design a story that will satisfy the older audience in terms of connecting with the original 1985 Goonies, and then [also] create this new thing.”

While Astin admits it’ll be difficult to recapture the magic, he’s confident that the “creative lightning” will strike that allows the project to move forward. “I remain as open-minded and willing to participate as I have ever been,” he declared.

That might actually make me smile in some sick way. Too bad the kidtoucher probably wouldn't sign up for it. Lea Thompson has nothing else going on, though.

Not only that, but the guy who played Chunk was super skinny the last time I saw a picture of him. Who wants to see a Chunk who isnt a fat waste of life ?

why cant they come up with an original idea anymore? All hollywood can create anymore are unnecessary sequels and rehashed plots with different titles and actors.

Chunk is now an entertainment lawyer. I'm sure he would be into making this, the exposure might help him pick up some clients.

I know at one point the plot revolved around the kids going on their adventure, this was all described to me by someone in the know, but I'm sure some details are off a bit. Again they are all about to loose their houses, or at least one of them is and they need money. The kids go on this adventure looking for treasure in the desert. I don't know how they got to the desert, maybe my friend was mixed up. In the end they don't find a real treasure but they wind up finding some kind of fountain or spring, and they wind up starting a bottled water company which winds up making millions. I know this was the working plan around three years ago, who knows if it's still the plan.

Um, havent they wanted to make a Goonies 2 since 2001. it was talked about on the commentary and "whispers" of a sequel have been floating around since then as well same with Lethal Weapon 5. Come to think of it thats all Donner does now a days is create rumores about movies he'll never do and just ends up making crap like that Mos Def movie .
