OK, yet another tidbit on the fate of a Goonies 2 — a comment that Sean Astin (pictured) made in a Sept. 22 interview with Tulsa World, calling the sequel a “100 percent mortal lock,” caused quite a stir (http://tinyurl.com/mortallock).

The actor is pictured in a photo from his Facebook page, where he posted the following on Sept. 28: “I have always believed that there will be a Goonies Sequel, because Steven Spielberg told me in 1988 that he wanted to make one. Richard Donner has said that it is in the works. Warner Brothers is enjoying a very successful merchandising experience with the ‘title.’

“If it gets made in my lifetime, I will root for it, whether I’m in it or not. If it gets made after I’m no longer here to be in it or to watch it, I still know in my heart, guts, wherever, (that it) will get made. “The fact that I’m asked about it everywhere I go is amusing. The fact that people just make stuff up about it, also hilarious. Now, I have said all I am going to say on the subject until 5 minutes from now when another Goonies-loving neighbor wants me to give them the inside scoop. Spoiler, no scoop.”
