‘The Goonies II’ Is Coming: Steven Spielberg Writing The Story

Tue, April 22, 2014 2:02pm EDT by 15 Comments

‘Goonies’ fans, it’s your lucky day! It looks like the classic movie’s sequel is really happening and will be written by none other than Steven Spielberg — rejoice!

Fans of the 1985 cult classic, The Goonies, have been waiting for a sequel for almost 30 years, and after TMZ cornered the film’s director, Richard Donner, it looks like their dreams may finally be coming true — a follow-up to the kids adventure flick is apparently on the way with a story by none other than the original film’s executive producer, the genius of Hollywood, Steven Spielberg.

‘The Goonies II’ Coming Soon

Almost 30 years later, Richard has announced a sequel to his masterpiece, The Goonies. Apparently, members of the original cast such as Sean Astin, Josh Brolin and Corey Feldman made their interest in doing a sequel known, which pushed Richard to get his wheels turning, or so says Nerdist.

‘Goonies II’: Fans Overjoyed About Sequel News

In the interview shot by TMZ, Richard does admit that “of course” Steven is involved, so as far as we’re concerned this sequel is really happening. Yay!

A Bit Of ‘Goonies’ Back Story

In case you didn’t see the original, The Goonies is about a clique of outsider kids who live in an Astoria, Oregon neighborhood called the “Goon Docks.” In an effort to save their homes from demolition by the government, they discover an ancient map and follow it on an epic treasure hunting adventure.

Appropriately, the sequel takes place 30 years later. It will be so interesting to see what the leads are up to all grown up. We have a distinct feeling they’ll still be young and adventurous at heart, and this treasure may even rival One-Eyed Willie’s!

Are you excited for The Goonies II, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!

I think it’ll be cool. who cares if they’re in their 40’s? there is PLENTY of sequels to 80s’ and 90’s movies with the same premise. Let it happen, but I agree DO NOT let George Lucas get near this movie. I love his movies, but the recent ones were decent at best.

And maybe have kids the same age as they were in the original? Why is that bad? Do you think they’re gonna slap some converses on them and pretend they’re still 12?

Maybe you don’t understand the meaning of the word “sequel?”

I’d say he understands the word “sequel” just fine.

The Little Mermaid 2. Lady And The Tramp 2. Toy Story 3. Each of these “sequels” was just a rehash of the previous films. In the first two cases, it was just the same flick with the kids of the original characters. In TS3’s case, it was TS2’s basic plot restructured.

There’s also all the slasher film sequels.

Fact is, “sequel” and “rehash” can and have and will continue to be used interchangeably for all time. Because “The Goonies is getting a rehash!” is crappy marketing. “Sequel” sounds much better.

Maybe this one won’t be a rehash. But his understanding of ‘sequel’ in general is still pretty much right on the money given the history of rehashquels out there.

As long as Spielberg keeps George Lucas away from the script. That guy is toxic when it comes to movies nowadays. It would end up as the gang on an alien spacecraft and the audience would get the anal probe.
