THE GOONIES 2 Is in the Works with Story Reportedly Written by Steven Spielberg

Nearly 30 years after The Goonies made a mark on the childhood of millions for decades after its release, a sequel seems like it might just be on the way, according to the director of the original film, Richard Donner. Of course, given the immense popularity and longevity of The Goonies, a sequel has been a possibility for some time, but only now, with interest expressed from the original cast, like Sean Astin, Josh Brolin, and Corey Feldman, does a Goonies 2 seem more likely.

In addition to casting, none other than Steven Spielberg, also according to Donner, came up with the sequel’s story. Spielberg wrote the story for the original film, and his participation might therefore be reassuring to Goonies purists. Goonies 2 would take appropriately take place 30 years after the events of the first film and would feature the children of Mikey, Brand, and the rest of the gang.

Let’s hope The Goonies 2 sequel gets made the right way and doesn’t relegate the name to being just a long-forgotten video game title.

  • perfectly said, richard!! it’s not a remake, it’s a sequel with the same cast, writer, and director! I’ve read “scripts” in the past, I’m beyond excited that it is actually finally happening. cannot WAIT! never say die!

    • Hey I am an 80′s kid/Adult and I have to say I love the first goonies and can’t wait for the second one to come out. LOVE IT!!!! If you don’t like it then you don’t have to watch the NEW movie. It’s that simple but don’t ruin it for other people who love this movie to death. I’m 25 and I still enjoy watching this movie with popcorn and a Pepsi along with pepperoni pizza and a baby Ruth.
