THE GOONIES 2 Is in the Works with Story Reportedly Written by Steven Spielberg

THE GOONIES 2 Is in the Works with Story Reportedly Written by Steven Spielberg

Nearly 30 years after The Goonies made a mark on the childhood of millions for decades after its release, a sequel seems like it might just be on the way, according to the director of the original film, Richard Donner. Of course, given the immense popularity and longevity of The Goonies, a sequel has been a possibility for some time, but only now, with interest expressed from the original cast, like Sean Astin, Josh Brolin, and Corey Feldman, does a Goonies 2 seem more likely.

In addition to casting, none other than Steven Spielberg, also according to Donner, came up with the sequel’s story. Spielberg wrote the story for the original film, and his participation might therefore be reassuring to Goonies purists. Goonies 2 would take appropriately take place 30 years after the events of the first film and would feature the children of Mikey, Brand, and the rest of the gang.

Let’s hope The Goonies 2 sequel gets made the right way and doesn’t relegate the name to being just a long-forgotten video game title.

    ahhh yes finally love that movie i was hoping for about 13 years for a sequel to this movie and it could actually be happening yes 

  2. d says:

    i loved the movie game everything i even have the board game which not most people have if they make 2 i would go see it

  3. GOONIE fan5438 says:

    Hurry up and make the movie already. I’m not getting any younger. Has to be great to measure up the original. 4 words. Keep it simple stupid. And also. Make it great or don’t make it at all please mr spielberg

  4. barb says:

    Icant wait!!! 

  5. Adam says:

    If it has a “2” , it is highly likely to fail. C’mon Steve, get some new ideas. You are better tha George. 

  6. Katie C. says:

    I would be so freaken thrilled to see the goonies part 2. I am 19 years old, and I was not born in the 70s-80s, but the first goonies was still a major part of my growing up. I still watch it to this day, because I want it to inspire my son, like it inspired hundreds of other kids. I would love for there to be a sequel, because not only could a sequel made thirty years later inspire kids, it could ultimately be more oriented for adults.

  7. “OUCH, WHAT DO YOU DO” :p

  8. RKJ says:

    please include Konami Man too

  9. Andy says:

    I don’t want to see them middle age if I could pick one of the girls to be I would be Andy because when she kissed the boy with braces.BTWS I’m a girl

  10. cant remember what game for the NES was better, I or II. I thought II was?

  11. pffreese says:

    What I would like to see and don’t think I have is the scene at the convenience store where Troy rolls up the map and lights it and pretends to smoke it.

  12. pffreese says:

    I will never betray my Goon Dock friends,We will stick together ’til the whole world ends.Through heaven and hell, and nuclear war,good pals like us will stick like tar.In the city or country, forest or boonies,I’m proudly declared one of the Goonies!- from the Goonies storybook

  13. Candle says:

    Did I not say Astoria and Cannon Beach?
    None of the film was actually shot in Seaside. I lived in Astoria for over a year and it was my Goonies-loving, dream come true to see that beautiful house every day! I’ve seen the jail that the opening scene was filmed in, the museum, the road that Brand flew off of… Anyone else experienced jelly-legs from climbing the Astoria Column? Or throw popcorn while “Shanghaied in Astoria”?
    I’m well aware of the curves of that coastline. I drove through Astoria, over Youngs Bay, past Warrenton, Gearhart and through Seaside each day that I worked at Necanicum Village (a terrible place to leave your “beloved” elders to die)… I used to hang out with Stan the Marble Man (he had an antique shop downtown Astoria and more marbles than any one person should)
    Believe, I’ve seen the movie more times than I can count, there are a million continuity and plot line errors but it’s beautiful all the same. A remake of the monster-piece that is the Goonies would be more tragic than cursing at a sack full of puppies on fire!
    Booty traps and pinchers of hell to anyone that thinks a remake can even come remotely close to the greatness that happened in 1985! Yo!
    You all cheering a sequel probably jumped on the TMNT remake too… Gross.

  14. Andrew Wallingford says:

    Maybe this time we’ll actually get to see the giant squid that was cut out of the original. (Chunk wasn’t lying about the giant squid in the final scene but the edit made it seem like he was.)

    And by the way, it’s “booty traps.”

    • Bubbajones4 says:

      how do you know there was a giant squid?

      • pffreese says:

        It was an octopus and I’ve seen it.  It’s either on a DVD or it was on a cable airing of it.  Booby traps and Pinchers of Peril.  Get it right.

  15. Eric says:

    With all the technological advances in today’s world I am looking forward to seeing what kind of inventions Data will have. I was 6 when the original came out and can’t wait for the sequel.

  16. carla says:

    I cant wait for the Goonies 2 hoping all same characters will appear in it as well. I own the Goonies and alll the way absolutely luv this movie, one of my most fav. films. My children have also got to share the experience of being able to see this as well. They luv it! Cant wait, So excited :)

  17. justice says:

    I agree with sheri , it has nothing to do with what kids watch, when i was 11 my parents let me stay up and watch Saturday Night Live every saturday night , and i grew up watching WWE wrestling, besides the harry potter movies have some curse words in them even the first one

  18. Phil says:

    The movie will suck. It will have the usual politically correct agenda and have to star black people.

  19. Kim Sebastian says:

    AWESOME!!! I am a child of the 80s . Still to this day , Goonies. Is still my favorite movie. I would love to see a sequel. Bring it on !!!

  20. Donovandn says:

    I hope they make a 2. I remember as a kid wanting to be a Goonie. Just hope it has more story than CGI, and captures a sense of adventure and fantasy like the original did.

  21. martin says:

    are they are going to have the pitches of peril

    guys, guys,, I’ve been saved by the pitches of Peril

  22. RJAtor says:

    Truffle Shuffle time, baby.

  23. Steve Orpin says:

    Oh great. Another crop of kids for Spielberg to molest. I’m sure Cory Feldman is just kvelling with nachis over reliving THAT nightmare.

  24. Marscaleb says:

    I don’t know…
    Goonies was about a group of kids. If you bring them all back now as a bunch of middle-aged adults, it just wouldn’t be the same.

    I’d rather see a spiritual squeal to Goonies than a real sequel to Goonies.

  25. Rebecca Rice says:

    This is a horrible idea. Nothing could live up to the original Goonies. This movie will spend all of its time trying to do what the first one did, “only better.” It’ll be “Han shot first” all over again.

  26. Jackie says:

    Never Say Die!!! Hellz yah baby!!!!
    I’m a Goonie for life..done the truffle shuffle just like/where chunk did. Grew up goin on our own Goonie treasure hunts. Love my hometown Astoria Oregon!!!!

  27. Tommie Williams says:

    I was absolutely in love with the original and can’t wait for the new one.

  28. Curtis says:

    This has to be a lie. The cover art is the exact same as a game made by Konami for the NES in 1987/88.

  29. Ryan Oldham says:

    yes in Astoria, i was there for 3mos working and walked passed the store and the bowling alley everyday where chunk squished his milk shake. I hace pics of all the houses in movie, jail, you name it very cool.

  30. Robbyo says:

    Good enough! For me it’s good enough! Good enough for me.

  31. JDre says:

    So who is going to play the politically correct version of Sloth or whatever the big giant mutant dude was called.

  32. dennis j slowey says:

    oh I hope they make a 2 one who will be sloth and ya that was in astoria or.

    • pffreese says:

      Good point, what would they do about Sloth?  Maybe have him passed on but have a couple photos of him in remembrance.

  33. Richard says:

    Been waiting on this sequel for over 20 years!!! Can’t wait to see this!!!

  34. WhiskeyIcarus says:

    Hey Candle, if you’re going to be an unnecessarily rude and insufferable know-it-all d-bag, you should make sure that you’re correct, so you don’t look like an idiot. The film is SET in Astoria and some of the scenes were filmed there, but the coastal scenes were filmed at Cannon Beach (Haystack Rock) and Ecola State Park, both of which are within about 10 miles of Seaside. You remind me of those sanctimonious jackassess who make grammatical errors in a comment about someone else’s spelling errors.

  35. Heather says:

    Is this only coming out because the Producer Harvey Bernhard recently passed away? Why was this discussed as being in the works before then? Maybe it wasn’t meant to be?

  36. Seth Ridgefire says:

    Wait, Spielberg is writing it? In his current state of mind? Spoilers: Sloth and One Eyed Willy turn out to be ALIENS! ALIENS galore!

  37. OregonDaffodil says:

    Candle, It sounds like you don’t know poop about the Oregon Coast. Seaside is smack dab between Astoria and Cannon Beach. Ergo, it is entirely possible the cast visited Seaside during filming… Perhaps stopping at the Pig for a pancake or Moe’s for some chowder??

  38. Shannan says:

    With this being decades later, I really hope that the plot line will be similar to the first movie as well as making everything by hand and not by computer.

  39. two pennies for Rita says:

    No kidding, right? Movies cant be named the source of why children have filthy mouths its parents sheltering them too much, practically encourages it! I feel for your method of parenting as I believe you will be one of many yhat are causing our children today to be more inclined to use profanity by over coddling and sheltering it. It should be explained as a parent that its not appropriate to use language of sorts TOWARDS or DIRECTED AT another person however, foul language is at every turn. Get real Rita!! GO GOONIES! My daughter will watch it and the original just as I did growing up.. take note, I just schooled you, Rita, without one profane word. I just hope you wake up.and notice your mentality is only going to hold your child back and make them act out in the opposite manner your aiming for… I hope you “get” it cause otherwise I’d hate to have my child be friends with your destined to be, foul mouthed child (ren) … just saying!

  40. Sheri Christy says:

    Curse words? Really? Parents like you who make it a huge deal are the ones that have children with the filthiest mouths at school and any other time you aren’t around. And a PG movie including the original Goonies…doesn’t use words that bad….geez! They probably hear worse from the neighbors…or you! I can’t wait to see this movie! At 7,Sean Astin was my first love! Lol

  41. Rita says:

    Just hope they leave the curse words out of it and make a decent movie. My husband and children love “The Goonies”; however, if it’s full of curse words my children will not be watching it!

  42. Candle says:

    No. Just no.
    And if you would LOVE to see Sean Astin and Corey Feldman in Seaside, Oregon again; you obviously don’t know shit about the original Goonies. It wasn’t Seaside at all. The movie was filmed in Astoria, Oregon, Cannon Beach, Oregon and in the Warner Bros Studio…

  43. Annie says:

    That’s what I said. Boobie traps.

  44. jay says:

    boobie traps

  45. Wendy dicker says:

    I have negative and positive feelings about this. Hope they don’t mess it up but at least it would be good to see what happened after and wonder if Richard Donner will be in on this one too. Xxxx
