Recently Yahoo Movies interviewed Corey Feldman, who played Mouth in “The Goonies,” and he mentioned the long-awaited Goonies 2 movie (http://tinyurl.com/corfeld). His photo, shown, is courtesy of his website, http://coreyfeldman.net
“What I would like to see and what the reality of the project might be will no doubt be two different things,” he told Yahoo. He and Goonies co-star Sean Astin pitched a concept for the sequel to Goonies director Richard Donner — an “Indiana Jones-type big” movie, with a huge budget and lots of action.
“Donner said to me in that meeting, ‘I like where you guys are going, but the one thing you have to remember is we’re not trying to make a big epic movie here. We want to make something true to what the original was, which is more character-driven and full of heart.’”
“Any Goonies sequel has to be based in reality, and in Astoria,” Feldman added. “That’s where we met and fell in love with these characters. I think that’s the biggest clue I got to where they were heading with the sequel.”
But wait. “That was a year ago,” he added, “so who knows if that’s still the course of action.” Back to square one.
