The Goonies Stars Say Sequel Will Happen 'Someday'
Hey you guys, I've got some good news, because a bunch of the stars of The Goonies say a sequel will happen 'someday'. Can that day be soon, please?
During a Q&A at the FAN EXPO Canada, stars Sean Astin, Corey Feldman and Ke Huy Quan were asked if the rumours of a sequel were true.
Astin told fans: "Someday."
While Quan said: "That is the most asked question I've heard for the last 30 years." Well, that's because fans really want it, mate.
"The someday part, someday it'll happen," Astin added. "The audience wants it, they're gonna do it, it's annoying it's taking so long, I'm sorry on behalf of Steven Spielberg."
Feldman then joked that they'll 'get it done tomorrow' and Quan reiterated that it would happen 'someday'.
Well, that sounds pretty exciting doesn't it?
Their comments come just months after Astin said that he didn't think a sequel with the original cast was likely.
Speaking to Collider in April, Astin said: "I think we've probably passed the threshold for which all of us original cast members are right for doing a sequel."
However, he seemed open to the idea of a reboot, adding: "The audience is so powerful and so devoted to it that I'm absolutely convinced that it will at the very least will be rebooted, which I would be fine with. If it's not as good as the original Goonies, then okay, who cares, at least it's out there."
It's also been revealed that he and Feldman had approached The Goonies director Richard Donner, writer Chris Columbus and Speilberg with an idea for a sequel, but that financial issues meant it was unlikely the movie would have been greenlit.
In an interview with Us Magazine, Feldman said: "Sean Astin and I actually wrote a pitch, a treatment of about 10 pages that we took into [director] Richard Donner and a representative of [screenwriter] Chris Columbus and Steven [Spielberg]. We pitched it and Donner loved it, but he said it was too expensive an idea."
Despite all these set-backs, die-hard fans of the 80s classic, which also starred Josh Brolin, are still keen to see the Goonies reunited all these years later - so they're sure to be delighted with the news that the gang will reunite 'someday'.
