Will they or won’t they?


Once again, talk of a Goonies sequel is being bandied about because of an interview with original “The Goonies” screenplay writer, Chris Columbus, for HuffPost Live on Monday (http://tinyurl.com/CColGoon2). He is pictured in a still shot from the interview.

“There are a lot of writers who are interested in writing ‘Goonies,’ but the problem is that we are very protective because it’s such a well-loved movie,” Columbus said, noting that a ‘Gremlins’ sequel (he wrote the original screenplay of that movie, too) would be much easier to pull off.

“ ... Gremlins exist as creatures. They haven’t aged,” he commented. “The Goonies have aged 30 years. There was a magic about that particular cast, so how do you make it work now? And that’s a difficult challenge.”

In other words, Goonies 2 is at a standstill. But just remember: Goonies never say die.
