Goonies II

What ever happened to Goonies II? Where can we write to Dick Donner and beg him to make it happen? Those "kids" need some employment for pete's sake!

This is ok it's wikipedia page:

A film sequel was in the works, something long desired by fans. Donner said that he had a story he liked and Spielberg behind him, but in 2004 several of the actors from the original revealed that Warner Brothers, the copyright holder, had not shown interest in a sequel. Richard Donner has expressed doubt that the sequel will ever happen. However, Entertainment Weekly reported in March 2007 that a musical adaptation of the film is being discussed. "Steven and I have discussed it, and it's something that I'm fairly passionate about right now," Donner says.

I had seen that Donner quote about a musical adaptation, but SURELY.....SURELY that was said in jest. Having listened to some of his feature length commentaries, it would seem to fit his sense of humor.

Yeah, I suppose so. I personally don't see why the hell he'd agree to doing a Goonies Musical but not a normal Goonies film.

Al, are you into film making at all? I noticed you are in Georgia. Maybe you'd like to participate in my fan film shoot on June 22-23?

All evidence to the contrary.

Eric

Sorry. Wish I could help but I don't know much about the filmmaking process, I just enjoy the outcomes.

I don't really need to see G2 getting made. Great movie but I just don't think it ever warranted a sequel.

Did you ever see or read Stephen King's IT? it's about a group of adults who used to hang out together as kids and then many years later get dragged back into an adventure together. I think Goonies 2 would work really well with a similar concept. Heck, maybe SK could write the thing.

I've got it! Chester Copperpot returns from the grave garbed in spooky clown attire. The McGuffin MUST be the "slick shoes". What happens next?...

The movie was fine to stand alone...now leave it and let it be it. No need to create a sequel to every successful movie/tv show in history. If anything just have a reuninion and stick in on a DVD. The current DVD is crappy anyway: I HATE those Cardboard click cases!

Damn,how can you compare the two???
I'm a huge Stephen King fan,but the movie It sucked,man! The guy just can't make good screenplays!
Read the book!That'll give ya a great time!

Goonies is one of my fave movies(not the best but as an 11 year old it's awsome!) but a sequal is out of the question! This is a solo-movie!(and I don't mean han solo)

Haha! Yeah,Corey Feldman would do it,I guess! But Sean wouldn't,amd neither would Que and the guy that played Chunk...

A better idea would be to bring out a really great DVD version with lots and lots of extra's!
And the soundtrack by Dave Grusin. Unfindable,that one!

'...Clint over at Movie Hole says multiple sources (one inside of Warners confirming "a very, very good source") are saying that writers have been attached to a GOONNIES theatrical follow-up & that the project seems to be "inching" forward.

This isn't being characterized as a cheap knock-off a la LOST BOYS 2: THE TRIBE. This is a large scale theatrical release that's going to give the property "the respect it deserves".'

I don't think I've watched any movie more than The Goonies...I'd love to see a sequel!

Wasn't their a Goonies II videogame for the NES? What was the plot of it?

Surely the rest is fanmade. This surfaced long ago.

I sure hope them rumors turn out to be true.

I wonder if the premise they have in mind still has the old Goonies rescuing their Goonie kids, a rumor going around years ago...

Goonies 1 was about youth and adventure

While now they're all old. and isn't the actor who played chubbs now skinny? No fun in a skinny chubbs.

However, I would like if they played with the idea of a new cast of children in a new neighborhood filled with adventure in a Goonies 2. Any thoughts?
