Hey You Guys!
Seems Richard Donner went and go us all excited for nothing -there may not be another “Goonies” after all. And no, it’s got nothing to do with Sloth’s appearance fee.
Speaking to Larry King, original Astoria tribesman Sean Astin essentially declared the project is experiencing some painful hiccups, claiming nobody can get the script right.
Will it happen? Astin doesn’t sound too confident.
KING: Are they going to make another ‘Goonies’?
ASTIN: They want to.
KING: Do they?
ASTIN: Yeah, they’re trying. They can’t figure it out.
ASTIN: Because something special happened with that movie. I mean really special. You can’t image how much people love this movie from the 80s, that almost doesn’t hold up in terms of the quality. But, Steven Spielberg had this magic, this poetry in him. And Dick Donner had this sense of adventure in him. And the two of them got together and made a movie where they let things happen. There are things in that movie that are wrong — like a lot. Like, I accidently call one character by his actor name and not his character name. There was a sequence with an octopus that was cut out, but one of the characters refers to it in a prominent way at the end of the movie, and they left it in. There was wimsey about how they did this movie that was so full of love.
KING: So they’re trying to do another one?
ASTIN: It’s really hard to engineer that. And, now they’ve got all this time to think about it. It’s hard.
