The revelation came about when Donner was asked if he would ever do another comic book movie to which he replied “If you call Goonies a comic book. We’re doing a sequel.”
Today though Donner has gone one step further and has confirmed to TMZ that Spielberg has already got the idea for the sequel and that they are currently in the process of trying to get the original cast on board. Though Josh Brolin may be a difficult one to get.
But Brolin isn’t the only one that could be tough to get on board for a sequel. Jeff Cohen (Chunk) and Jonathan Ke Quan (Data) have both retired from acting so we could be looking at a diminished original cast quite easily.
As an added bonus check out this footage of Donner getting a little irate discussing the sequel and Spielberg’s involvement.
