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.
Here’s a list of people I don’t want at my funeral: Judy Haim, Corey Feldman, Todd Bridges, Baywatch‘s Nicole Eggert, Teen Witch star Robyn Lively and former Playmate Julie McCullough. We clear? OK, that being said, that’s the exact list of people who gathered at a Marina Del Ray restaurant to pay their respects to their recently deceased friend, Corey Haim.
Another attendee, Kristy Swanson, spoke to People and said the following of the memorial dinner:
“It was like a reunion. Robyn brought tons of old pictures – lots of people with crazy hair and funny clothes, and people gave Judy gifts. I had a picture of me with Corey on the set of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and I gave that to her. There were no speeches, just lots of picture taking, talking and sharing pictures of our kids.”
Well, that’s nice. But wait a minute– does anyone else find it odd that Feldman & Co. skipped his Canadian memorial service so it could be private and family-oriented, and then they have a dinner which they report the details of to the press? I have a hard time believing that someone like Corey Haim had a single friend in the world (one that didn’t enable him, that is), let alone that these people aren’t milking his death for any shred of relevancy that they can dig up.
Corey Feldman may be down one BFF, but that doesn’t mean he’s going to stay at home and cry about it. Just yesterday Corey was out in West Hollywood at Millions of Milkshakes (ugh), where he created his signature shake, posed for the paps, and hung out with a boy in a wheelchair who was holding a very racy looking magazine in his lap. Yes, it seems that life for Corey will go on just about the same without the other Cory, if you can believe it.
P.S. This guy is like, so desperate that it hurts to look at him.
