Marshall on the status of Goonies 2 and Indiana Jones 5

Marshall on the status of Goonies 2 and Indiana Jones 5

If you’re still holding out hope for a “Goonies” sequel, don’t.

At the same time, don’t be thinking a fifth “Indiana Jones” – one to rectify the wrongs of the franchise-raping “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” – is a sure thing.

Speaking to Collider for “The Bourne Legacy”, legendary producer Frank Marshall was asked whether or not we kiddies of the ’80s might be treated to sequels to some of the beauties we grew up with, namely, “Goonies”.

Of “The Goonies 2″, which has been rumoured for years but never inched any closer than the idea stage (though it is rumoured Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman of “Transformers” fame were once hired to write a draft), Marshall says he’s heard zip.

Nobody thought of sequels back in the eighties. Gremlins 2, we did that. We talked about a sequel to E.T., but Steven said it stands on its own. Maybe there was talk, but not a lot. I’m just always surprised about The Goonies.

…for your generation it’s this big movie. When we were making we thought it’s a little goofy, but people really identify with the kids. There you go. I look back on it. It’s funny; I have two girls 13 and 16. I ran it for them a couple years ago, and I was astonished at the language in the movie. I tell them they can’t swear and they’re saying, “Dad, look at this movie. You’ve got all these kids [swearing]”.

It had that adventure and it had that fantasy of kid’s dreams in it.

Of “Indiana Jones 5″, which George Lucas and Steven Spielberg have offhandedly mentioned is in the development stage, Marshall sounds just as pessimistic.

I think, for me, [Crystal Skull is] the last hurrah. I know that, yes, we talk about it, but there’s no idea, there’s no MacGuffin.

And with George Lucas now handing over the reigns to Lucasfilm to Kathleen Kennedy, Marshall doesn’t expect Lucas will be working on getting an “Indy” film going.

So, sad news, but at the same time the producer also notes that there’s no talk of sequelizing or rebooting the “Back to the Future” franchise, remarking that he doesn’t even want to see those films re-issued in 3D. He simply wants that trilogy left alone, as it is.

Can’t agree more. It’s perfect in it’s current form.
