And according to Corey, he’s not the only one – he says that the original cast and even writer/producer Steven Spielberg want to continue on with the epic adventures of the Goonies. The thing is, the studio’s a little hesitant:
“They treasure this film, as you know – it is literally their greatest family film title of all time,” he says. “That’s the way they see it. It’s always on the top 25, all DVD sales around the world all the time. If we go and throw a sequel out there that’s lesser [in quality], then suddenly we may hurt this continuous cash cow.”
I feel like a lot of what Corey Feldman says nowadays is nonsense, but if he’s telling the truth about Spielberg being open to a sequel, that sounds like it may be a little legit. I mean, the guy got that shitty fourth Indiana Jones movie made, I think he could talk people into a little ol’ Goonies sequel. I’m not saying it would be right – it would probably be pretty tragic, especially since Chunk is now the most attractive cast member – I’m just saying it’s possible.
Another possibility? A Broadway musical based on the original film. Let’s take that road, everyone involved with The Goonies. That’s the kind of growth that’s acceptable.
Goonies never say die, you guys. Trust.
