If the movie's director can be believed, a sequel to 1985's The Goonies is on its way.
During a recorded haranguing by a TMZ reporter, Richard Donner revealed that he is working on a Goonies sequel. This isn't the first time a Goonies sequel has been teased, though Donner's certainty about it was refreshing.
So who's going to return? "Hopefully all of them," said Donner.
That's great news for Corey Feldman, who stated in 2010 that "we'd all like to see it happen," and then took to his Twitter following Donner's admission to confirm that he was told the same thing. "I can verify the statement as he said 'Steven [Spielberg] n I R doin it together,' and mentioned something about [original writer] Chris Columbus helping out," Feldman revealed over a series of tweets. "He also said he wanted us all in it. However, I hav yet 2 C a script, so I remain skeptical."
Feldman went on to say that a Gonnies sequel will need a "perfect" script but remains "confident" in Donner's ability to pull it off.
For fans that have been holding out hope for another installment for nearly 30 years, that will have to do for now.
