View Full Version : Goonies 2 Update

06-16-2010, 10:33 AM
While doing the press rounds for his new film Jonah Hex (http://uk.movies.ign.com/objects/040/040155.html), Josh Brolin (http://uk.stars.ign.com/objects/915/915966.html) has been discussing The Goonies 2 (http://uk.movies.ign.com/objects/055/055940.html), and it seems that the news is both good and bad for fans of the 1985 fantasy flick.

Brolin - who played Brandon Walsh in the film - told Extra (http://extratv.warnerbros.com/2010/06/josh_brolins_exclusive_dish_on_goonies_sequel.php) that that there is definitely a script, but no plans to actually shoot it.

"Doing a sequel is something that keeps coming up and keeps coming up" he explained. "I saw [producer] Steven Spielberg (http://uk.stars.ign.com/objects/916/916595.html) on the street about a month-and-a-half ago, and I asked him the reality because I was told by many, many people that there was a script but that didn't work and [director] Richard Donner (http://uk.stars.ign.com/objects/913/913344.html) but that didn't work and Steven was going to come in and do it.

"And I hear that there is a script, yes, but there's no talk of doing a Goonies (http://uk.movies.ign.com/objects/792/792827.html) sequel at this very moment. And that's the first time I've been truthful about that answer ever!"

So sounds like we're no nearer to seeing the further adventures Mouth, Data, Chunk and co, but as ever, we'll have further news on this one as and when it breaks.

I suppose its kind of good, because The Goonies is a classic and I dont know how they could make a sequel work.

Plus the fact you couldnt change the actors/actresses because imagine somebody else playing chunk, it wouldnt be right. Not to mention they'd completely fuck Sloth up with CGI - and no doubt they'll do it in 3D.

I think they should leave it and not do a sequel, because if its crap then it will take a bit of the magic out of the original.

as bad as the writing coming out of hollywood right now, i like sequel ideas slightly better than re-makes.... slightly

Some remakes are actually better, but I don't think it would work with the Goonies.

I'd prefer a remake over a sequel in this case. I'd ultimately prefer to leave it alone though.

I don't think they will make a sequel.

Some things should not be touched. This in my opinion is one of them cases. Left it far to late and I feel the ship has past. Let it stay as classic and cult.

I hope they dont make a sequel of The Goonies! They should leave it alone- that movie is great!
