From 411:

"Sean Astin recently told Ain't It Cool News that Goonies 2 is up in the air.

Astin said that Steven Spielberg had spoken to him at the Golden Globes last year and told him that a new script for the movie had been written.

Richard Donner had expressed interest in directing the film in the past, but now rumor has it that he is no longer interested.

The plot of the rumored sequel has the kids of the original cast setting out of a new adventure."

Hallelujah that they aren't going to do such a stupid thing. It would absolutely RUIN the charm of The Goonies to know there is some stupid sequel out there. Leave it as it is! Terminator 3 will be bad enough!

Actually, it still will probably happen. Spielberg says (according to Darkhorizons) that he might direct it himself, which might be a good thing, if he can get back to his kiddie film mode as he did on Batteries Not Included and E.T.; I'd go see it.

I went to IMDB to gather mugshots of the original Goonies to show everyone what they would look like today. I found a pretty grim thing: most of the actors haven't had decent work in years and years. If Goonies 2 was made, it would be a major coup (read: payday) for most of these people:

I won't include Sean Astin, for obvious reasons.

Josh Brolin (Brand):
Most notable gigs since The Goonies include a bit role on "The Young Riders" and small parts in "Hollow Man" and "The Mod Squad."

Jeff Cohen (Chunk): no headshot available. Had just four TV roles after the Goonies, then fell off the face of the earth. Did he die or something? No more Truffle Shuffle!?

Corey Feldman:
You probably know what's up with Mouth. He's had a string of bad B-movie roles since The Goonies and a few biographical specials, mostly dealing with his drug abuse.

Kerri Green (Andy, the cheerleader babe): No headshot available. Has made only seven appearances in film and on TV since The Goonies, most notably in geek movie "Lucas."

Martha Plimpton (Steph):
She's had a lot of movies since The Goonies, but the only ones I really know are "The Mosquito Coast" and "200 Cigarettes."

Key Huy Quan (DATA!): No headshot available, last seen on "Head of the Class" and "Encino Man." That's terrible. I really thought this kid was going places.

Of course, two major characters would be missing: Anne Ramsey, who played Ma Fratelli, and John Matusak, who played Sloth, are both dead.

I wouldn't mind a Goonies II, but I can't see how it can follow the original cast. Given that Josh Brolin is playing a SENATOR on tv, and Corey Feldman is playing, uh, Corey Feldman on tv, the group is just too old to be having *wacky adventures* anymore. Although it would be neat to see whatever happened to Data and Chunk.

I apologize for being a Buffy/Angel mark.

Okay. Just found this: the entire cast of the Goonies (and Richard Donner in the back) as they appear today! Wow! Look at Chunk there in the front...he surely can't Truffle Shuffle anymore. Kerri Green ended up hot, huh?

    My thinking she may be working out of New York, hence the lack of mainstream films. She appeared in an episode of Law & Order: SVU last season and was on Hack (which was filmed in Philadelphia) a week of two ago.

    If I'm remembering the DVD correctly, Chunk's now a lawyer.

Let us not forget that Mr. Brolin is now Mr. Sterling on NBC, and Mr. Feldman... well... he was on the suckfest known as The Surreal Life.

Although, Brande Roderick is a cutie, I've heard. :)

The prospect of a Goonies sequel is stupid and quite frankly unnecessary. We have enough sequels, remakes, prequels, adaptations on the docket already we don't need anymore, especially not for the Goonies. As for spielberg, he says a lot of things. He says movies don't like Spider-man and Harry Potter don't challenge him anymore and that he's in his period of movies that are "dark and cynical", yet for some reason he's still going to do Indiana Jones 4 which as nostalgic and cool as that sounds at first, is pretty stupid in the long run. The Last Crusade was a fine end for the series, and we really don't need a goonies 2. Just play the video game on NES.

I'm all for a "bunch of misfit kids have a wacky adventure" movie We actually haven't had a good one in quite a while. I don't see why it has to be called "Goonies 2" though, as all that means is that you'll get a 30 second Corey Feldman cameo.

It seems that I am - in no particular order - Zack Morris, John Adams, a Siren, Janeane Garofalo, Cheer Bear, Aphrodite, a Chihuahua, Data, Cletus the Slack Jawed Yokel, Amy-Wynn Pastor, Hydrogen, Bjork, Spider-Man, Boston, and a Chaotic Good Elvin Bard-Mage.

(I'm stealing parts of this idea from another message board that doesn't exist anymore. Sorry.)

Plot for "Goonies 2"

After discovering the priceless treasures of One Eyed Willy's ship, Data becomes infected with gold fever. Over the years he becomes a multi-billionaire industralist with an army of robots seizing treasures from all over the world. He continues to get away with it until he goes too far and steals Chunk and Sloth's WWE Tag Team Championship belts.

The movie turns into a wild roller-coaster ride with Chunk and Sloth breaking into Data's European castle fighting off ninjas and dinosaurs. Look out for cameos of former WWE wrestlers from the Goonies/Cyndi Lauper video coming to the aid of our heros (Rowdy Roddy Piper, Iron Shiek, and Fabulous Moolah).

Unfortunatly John Matuszak, who played Sloth, passed away. So Sloth will have to be played by an animatronic robot.

Subplots include: Mikey and Brand fighting each other, Andi and Stef's lesbian relationship, and Corey Feldman doing a lot of coke.

I would like to put that phrase on the front of a T-shirt, and walk around wearing it without ever explaining it to anyone.

And this sequel probably isn't a good idea, but CMIYC proved to me that Spielberg can still do it if he tries, so I'll be there opening day. - Now with El Nastio!
