Corey Feldman has weighed in on will-there-won’t-there be a Goonies 2 in an interview with Movieweb.com (http://tinyurl.com/nogoonie), and has come up with a pretty good reason why it probably won’t happen — aside from the fact there’s not even a script yet.
“Richard Donner is 87 years old,” Feldman noted. “And it’s like, no one really wants to make it without him. He’s the driving force behind it. He says it’s still alive. But as we all know … When you get to that age, things slow down quite a bit. There is a big possibility that he might not want to keep driving it.
“So, I think without him, it doesn’t happen. And every day that passes, that he doesn’t do it, there is less and less chance that it is ever going to happen at all.” An illustration of the grown-up Goonies cast is shown, courtesy of Movieweb.com
So what does Feldman think about good friend Sean Astin’s recent quip at the Phoenix ComicCon, implying One-Eyed Willie’s presence in Goonies 2? “… I have no idea what he is talking about,” Feldman commented. “... I think it’s just one of those good old-fashioned Hollywood rumor mills working again.”
But you have to wonder: Does Astin know something Feldman doesn’t? Stay tuned.
