Richard Donner says a Goonies sequel is happening

Nearly 30 years after it was released in cinemas, it looks as though The Goonies might finally be getting a sequel, at least according to director Richard Donner.

Donner was asked by TMZ whether he would ever consider doing another comic-book movie, to which he replied, “If you call Goonies a comic book… we’re doing a sequel.”

Quite the bombshell to drop, there, Richard! The director didn’t elaborate much further, but did say that he was hopeful that all the original cast members would agree to a return.

The last time Donner commented on a potential sequel, was a couple of years ago, when he suggested that the likeliest way The Goonies would be getting a revival would be in the form of a stage musical.

Clearly something has changed since then, however . After all, Goonies never say die, now do they?

George is GR's resident movie news person, based out of London. He understands that all men must die, but he'd rather not think about it.
