Steven Spielberg Working On ‘Goonies’ Sequel, Says Richard Donner
(CBS NEWS) – Hey you guys! It looks like Steven Spielberg may have a hand in “The Goonies 2.”
Richard Donner, the director of the 1985 kids classic, told TMZ last Friday that Spielberg is on board for a new sequel based on the film fondly remembered by a nostalgic generation who grew up in the ’80s.
Spielberg has apparently developed a new storyline, but plot details have yet to be divulged.
“Steven came up with the idea of doing a sequel after 30 years,” Donner said. “You don’t do [a "Goonies" sequel] without him.”
Spielberg had served as executive producer on the original and helped come up with the story, which centered around a group of young misfits (led by Sean Astin) who try to find hidden pirate’s treasure.
Filmed primarily in Astoria, Oregon, many did not know a scene between Kerri Green’s character “Andy” and “Brand,” Josh Brolin’s character filmed their kissing in scene in Bodega Bay, according to the production notes on fan site, thegoonies.org.
